You will not be disappointed,
This review is from: 100 Simple Secrets of Happy People (Paperback)
By either this book, or I suspect, any book in this series.
There's a short introduction, about 3 pages, followed by the chapters which are themselves two or three pages and split into easily readable chunks, the contents is clear and there's a huge list of sources.
Its a very easy read, if you like the little book of calm or any books of that kind you'll love this but also if you're interested in learned optimism or any of the other life skills which make for greater satisfaction your the work-a-day world then this is very much for you too.
There is A LOT of crap published under the auspisces of "happiness science", whether its junk science, 101 ways of passing off budhism or a spiritual fix as the answer to lifes woes or some guru's philosophical musings and its all very disappointing. This isnt one of those sorts of books at all, it'll appeal to the emotional and rational alike.
