This review is from: How to Be Happy: How Developing Your Confidence, Resilience, Appreciation and Communication Can Lead to a Happier, Healthier You (Paperback)
Customer review from the Amazon Vine Programme (What's this?)
Put down the book, turn off the internet, go outside and take in a deep lungful of reality.
I lost patience a long time ago in self-help books of such unequivocally ridiculous cheerfulness. I have no problems with literature that you can use as a reference through difficult stages of your life, but this work (I hesitate to call it tome) is overly-cheerful, riddled with cliche and, to be honest, a solid spoon of common sense would suffice.
Jack Dee I'm not, but my thinly-reigned vitriol and sarcasm was fully unleashed at what I saw leafing from page to page. Save yourself some money, if you're this unhappy you're not going to find enlightenment from a book; see a proper counsellor and work through your issues with a human being.
