Let me say it right away; The Happiness Project is a purely personal book, but it doesn’t mean it is boring. If you are looking for a light non-fiction book to read while commuting, this may be the right choice. But I have to warn you, it may not be the right book if you are looking for more deeper meaning about happiness and not many projects.
I can confidently say that I am sure there are much better books on happiness. I wouldn’t recommend it if your goal is to read one of the best books in this genre. On that note, I cannot say that it worked very well for me even though I liked her style. It felt like a popcorn book; easily read and easily forgotten. However, if you are a project person like Gretchen Rubin, you may like it very much. There may also be things you will love on her website. After checking it out, I’m sure you’ll see if it is the right book for you. Enjoy!
The Happiness Project
Award-winning author Gretchen Rubin is back with a bang, with The Happiness Project. The author of the bestselling 40 Ways to Look at Winston Churchill has produced a work that is “a cross between the Dalai Lama’s The Art of Happiness and Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love.” (Sonya Lyubomirsky, author of The How of Happiness: A Scientific Approach to Getting the Life You Want) In the vein of Julie and Julia, The Happiness Project describes one person’s year-long attempt to discover what leads to true contentment. Drawing at once on cutting-edge science, classical philosophy, and real-world applicability, Rubin has written an engaging, eminently relatable chronicle of transformation.
Gretchen Craft Rubin is an American author, blogger and speaker.
