Fascinating book, beautifully written, highly recommended
on 27 March 2010
I've enjoyed Gretchen Rubin's blog for many months now so was excited to hear about her book. And when I read it? Utterly brilliant. Really! The book is not just the blog printed out; it's a whole different thing.
She writes SO well, such a warm and engaging and personal style. (I'm tempted to read the biographies she'd written before this, even though I wouldn't normally read biographies, just because she writes so well.)
And the content? Fascinating! Trying out lots of things with an open mind, things that others say will make you happy and seeing what it's like.
I can't praise this book highly enough. It's the best book I've read for a long time, fiction or non-fiction. It made me happy just to read it!
And at the end of it? I'm thinking about what makes me happy and how I can try out some of her ideas for myself. And if a book changes how you think or behave, then it's a Very Good Book.
I do hope someone else discovers what a great book this is because of what I'm writing here. That would make me very happy too!
