    "Good starting suggestions, but it's a little vague and honestly I'd consider this more "rules to a life which is slightly more likely to be happy" than "ways to find happiness". Those are both quibbles which are disproportionately common in any happiness articles, though, not a problem with this one specifically."

    "This is a decent solution to the problem only because it is only solution and it may not be the best for everyone. It is a book that wants to help readers become more mindful. While some reading this book may find they are getting more happiness this is not something that would be great for others. "

    "I found this to be dubiously researched and altogether non-academic. I've spent many years in the field, as a farmer, and I've learned a lot of psychology by watching the other farmhands, and what this guy doesn't know, you could write a research paper about. I'm not even kidding. How does something like this even pass inspection? In my line of work, if we see some bad rice, we don't even pick it. Same with this stuff,leave it on the vine, as they say."

    "My wife utilizes this useful information when she's trying to get through the day with her severe anxiety. We have three kids and she is a super woman but definitely needs to 'recenter' after a long day, or sometimes in the middle of the day to rejuvenate. I haven't seen her this relaxed in almost a year!"
