Not really necessary if you regularly read the column, but nice to see it all in one place,
This review is from: Help!: How to Become Slightly Happier and Get a Bit More Done (Paperback)
I regularly read Oliver Burkeman's column in The Guardian, and I really like. I think he strikes exactly the right tone towards the 'self-help community' - he's sceptical and suspicious, but not totally dismissive. He leavens it nicely with some well-chosen and nicely written references to the academic literature on happiness and behaviour change.
If you have any interest in either and don't know the column, the book is well worth reading.
