Product Description

Review

It s a fantastic read for anyone looking for a self–esteem boost! (Start Your Business, May 2014)

funny, thought–provoking and healthily acerbic. (The Daily Telegraph, May 2014)

provides simple, thought–provoking anecdotes and creative stories designed to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step. (Gay Times, July 2014)

The book is full of useful and easy to follow examples of how to be the most awesome version of you a bit more often, without ever, becoming sanctimonious or preachy.  It doesn′t offer a shortcut to enlightenment or unlimited wealth, but with lashings of dry humour and plenty of common sense, it lifts the mood and has you chuckling at yourself and the elaborate way we all trap ourselves in the cult of busy. (July 2014)

possibly the most entertaining self–help book you will ever read. (Northern Woman, September 2014)

Written in a truly humorous and accessible way, it is easy to understand and fun to read (Erisea Magazine, October 2014)

From the Back Cover

If there s something missing in your life, it s probably you.

Modern life is relentless. Your weeks are zipping by in a blur and your weekends provide an all–too–brief respite before you plunge headlong into the next manic episode of your life. The result? Your life feels rather samey .  Same routine, same thinking, same behaviours, same habits, same results.

And maybe that s fine. But life s a short and precious gift. It s too short to be just fine .

Be Brilliant Every Day will get you to think about your mindset, show you how to ditch those down days and be on form every single day.  With a solid understanding of positive psychology and a bit of funny stuff, this book will help you to get motivated, get positive, get happy, and most importantly, how to be all three consistently. And if you put the new improved you into practice, it will change your life forever.

Read. Do. Inspire.

we were first introduced to the 'brilliant' duo at our childrens school where they hold regular being brilliant days for the kids and open them up to the parents in the evenings. Having read a few of the books and wanting to fall into this mindset was pleasantly surprised when i saw another book was out when reading an article in the newspapers recently. Was straight on amazon to order a copy. This one seems to be the best of theirs that weve read, about a third of the way through its like a veil of murk lifts and you suddenly realise you are the master of your own happiness. i would recommend it and guarantee it will make you laugh out loud. go and watch the Stop It! clip it recommends (by Bob Newhart) it will have you smiling for days. That kind of sums up what this book is all about.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
The book is well constructed, holds the attention with its snappy presentation, and very much gets to the point. Using witticisms and an overall jokey style to present your information is OK, but I felt I became more indulgent with it as it went on, and it feel on the verge of being patronising. However, saying this, the approach is on the cusp here, so it does work, but the authors need to take stock of this particular approach, and not to wear it thin in its use. The “stick people” as cartoon introduction for each chapter merely left me quizzical as to why they were there, which could easily be left out.

This book is excellent for anyone who needs some guidance into getting back on a positive track. I am pleased it doesn’t harp on about positive thinking per se, but is more well rounded than that with emphasis on the overall psychology. It is clear this is written by Brits, which is great, as American stuff can be a bit chunder making with its happy-clappy style.

Reminders of the happiness principle is good, and a humbling reminder of the notion to look for it now, today, and not somewhere in what is a non-existent futuristic fantasy. Take notice of the “beautiful ordinary” and you can’t go far wrong. It is also not intellectually difficult to grab the reality that positive emotions open the mind and potentiate choices, but this book does seem to connect into the practical domain of getting the old arse in gear and making some changes.

The book has an excellent way of addressing the idea of negative self talk, that this is the natural default programme for us all but that we can take stock and pull the reins in before it dominates completely.

I'm not usually one for reading "self help" books, but this one appealed to me for the very reason that it may have put some of the other reviewers off. It doesn't take itself too seriously, and is written in an easy to read style full of self-deprecating humour. I'm a firm believer in the idea that you can learn more effectively with a smile on your face! I'm pretty sure there isn't anything radical here in terms of the ideas, but the combination of cartoons, quotations, anecdotes and psychological research is engaging and provides what the authors believe most of us need to be brilliant every day - that is to say, a nudge in the right direction.

Finally, a self-help book that does not take itself too seriously. “Be Brilliant Every Day” is a positive and jolly volume full of commonsense and very funny quotes to encourage the reader. One of the first chapters is entitled, “Forget self-improvement, try self-remembering” and the author is absolutely correct.

He goes on to point out that most people settle for mediocrity and poor standards through sheer inertia and, later, that they make a pretence of busyness but actually fail to engage with the business of living as fully as possible.

Andy Cope and Andy Whittaker are writers with a real sense of humour and they take the reader through a host of examples to encourage understanding of the human condition and assist them on the road to positive thinking. There are also plenty of laughs along the way.

I certainly learned a fair amount and I intend to apply this to enhance my life in doing so I recommend this book as an antidote for those grey skies of life. Enjoy!

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Be Brilliant Everyday is about humankind's search for happiness and the solution to not being happy most of the time. The book, without any sense of irony, asks whether a book alone can possibly do that and then suggests ways of using positive pyschology, some wisdom from the ancients, philosophers and even physicists to effect a working model for a happy life. It is not a difficult read and certainly not an uninteresting one, with several conclusions along the way: without giving anything away, an American Indian philosophy that says we create our own reality, resonates with me and there is a lot more besides this that will have a positive effect on the reader. Will it make you any happier at the end? Well, it will give you food for thought and some good guidelines such as not going over old ground all the time and letting internal wounds heal without constrantly picking at them - move on, so to speak. The book makes an interesting observation that we all seem more prone to being miserable than to being happy and need to break through our tendency to inertia if we want to find contentment in life, although not in ways that makes our lives busier of more frenetic than usual. Again, without giving anything away, the suggestion that we need to take time over the things that really matter to us is a good one and, though sounding obvious, is not advice most of us take to heart. Who's to say that this book won't change your life: it may make you think more about things and, if you do want to change your life, might help in several ways. Worth reading, but ddon't expect miracles.
