Format: Paperback
This is currently my favorite happiness book. In less than 100 pages, it offers a reader all they ever wanted to know about the subject of happiness- and then some. While some readers might be turned off by its brevity, I wasn't bothered, and in fact, appreciated it! As the insert of the book points out, "What good is a big book full of useful information if nobody ever finishes it?" Here's some specifics:

Chapter one poses the question, "Why are some people so much happier than others?" We've all met those individuals now and then that always seem to be happy all the time. What's their secret? The book will answer this by the end.

Chapter two will show you that happiness is really our ultimate pursuit and the main reason we want a lot of the things we do. For example, would you want a million dollars if you knew it couldn't bring you any happiness? Of course not, its really the happiness the money could bring you that you really want, not the money itself.

Chapter three goes into how happiness researchers go about studying happiness. Yes, its a science, and yes, it can be legitimately studied. This chapter tells you how they do it.

Chapter four is all about things that have very little to do with making a person happy. The book points out many things people waste their time on that won't ever result in long-term happiness. It also explains the process of adaptation that keeps material things from bringing people long-term happiness. The book provides a good example- was there ever a song you were just crazy about- but got sick of hearing after you played it for awhile? This same process occurs with posessions- so don't waste too much of your time trying to find happiness by acquiring more "things.

The first book I purchased of Jim Johnson was "Heal Your Rotator Cuff" and it's one of the best things I have ever done in my life. Since then I have purchased a few more books by JJ and this one has gotto be the best. The book is short, simple and TO THE POINT. No fluffing around like other self-help gurus - simple, scientifically proven facts about happiness. I was strugling to find out why I had an under-current of unhappiness in my life and I did A LOT of reading, watching videos in order to understand me & my life. This book hit home. It only took less than an hour to read and I've understood things about myself that I didnt for years.

Jim Johnson is somewhat of a genius. Simply.

This is a great little book. I really liked the fact that you can learn everything you need to learn in an hour or two and then there are a bunch of questions at the back of the book that get you on the right path in your search for more happiness. It's not padded out with lengthy theoretical discussions on happiness, but if you want more information then the references are given at the end. Brilliant. I wish there were more books like this!
