2nd book more than lives up to expectations,
This review is from: Happier at Home: Kiss More, Jump More, Abandon a Project, Read Samuel Johnson, and My Other Experiments in the Practice of Everyday Life (Kindle Edition)
I love The Happiness Project, so I was really keen to read Happier at Home. The book more than lived up to my expectations and explored avenues that the first hadn't covered.
I love Gretchen Rubin's mix of research, literary examples and examples from her own life. Research data is fascinating but what does it actually mean for the woman or man in the street? Gretchen explores this, but as she says herself, she can only comment from the stance of her own personality. I am fascinated by people's personal interpretations and I think it is this that sets the Happiness series apart. However, for those who want to explore their own feelings on the 8 focus areas there are the guidelines and tools in place to set up their own happiness project.
Definitely worth 5 stars, and I am hopeful there will be another happiness book along soon.
