Review

How to Have a Good Day is an extraordinary book - a wonderful mix of science, practical advice, and stories based on Caroline Webb's years of experience helping a huge range of people transform their professional lives for the better. Every chapter is studded with engaging real-world examples that ring true and illustrate how to make the most of the book's suggestions. Whatever your personal definition of a good day, you'll have more of them after reading this book. (Susan Cain, author of QUIET: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking )

How to Have a Good Day is a smart, thorough, and eminently practical book. Just about every page offers a science-based tip to help you become better off - or, in many cases, just plain better. (Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell is Human and Drive)

Behavioral science has come of age in recent years, and it has begged for a world-class translator. Now we have one. Caroline Webb's peerless translation of the behavioral sciences into tools for shaping the quality of our day is the book we've been waiting for. Play with just 2% of the ideas in this book, and you might just end up changing your life's course. Words like 'magisterial' come to mind. Bravo. (Tom Peters, co-author of award-winning bestseller In Search of Excellence)

Finally, a practical book based on evidence. How to Have a Good Day is grounded in state-of-the-art research on behavior and neuroscience, and animated with vivid examples from professionals who have successfully applied Webb's advice. It might even leave you looking forward to your next tricky conversation or challenging task as an opportunity to try out her tips. (Adam Grant, Wharton professor and New York Times bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals)

Almost all of us work in environments where our time is stretched far too thin. How to Have a Good Day helps us rise to that challenge, containing ideas and techniques that show us how to be at our own personal and professional best every day. (Tony Hsieh, New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness and CEO of Zappos.com, Inc.)

Webb has given us a great gift: she has synthesized all the advice coming out of labs around the world, filtered it for quality, and illustrated it with well-chosen examples. The appendices alone will save you dozens of hours per year - particularly on email - and help you create more great days for yourself. This is the only self-improvement book you will need in the next five years. (Jonathan Haidt, NYU-Stern School of Business, Author of The Happiness Hypothesis, and The Righteous Mind)

There's a big difference between having a great, productive day and having a bland, ordinary one. Caroline Webb deftly explains how to squeeze the most out of twenty-four hours, to create more of the former. Very useful. (Sir Michael Moritz, Chairman of Sequoia Capital)

Imagine what your life would be like if you could simply 'choose' to have a good day. Webb makes a powerful case that we can. Best of all, she shows us how. Webb gets her arms around the vast body of information coming at us from behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience, and distills the best of it into the kind of practical advice a wise friend might offer. It's the book Daniel Kahneman might write if he'd been working in the business world for twenty years. Masterful. (Douglas Stone and Sheila Heen, co-authors of the bestselling Difficult Conversations and Thanks for the Feedback)

A powerful toolkit to improve both work and well-being. From email and meetings to making the most out of every day, Webb shows us not just how to be more productive, but how to be more fulfilled along the way. (Jonah Berger, Wharton professor and bestselling author of Contagious and Invisible Influence)

The quest for self-improvement usually takes place on a well-trodden path, with many different gurus offering guidance. But the advice, in addition to being contradictory, often lacks solid foundations. Fortunately, How to Have a Good Day is the breakout exception to this category. The evidence and examples packed inside its pages leave the reader in no doubt that Webb's advice will make a real difference. Better days lead to better lives, and this extraordinary book will lead to both. (Chris Guillebeau, New York Times bestselling author of The $100 Startup and The Happiness of Pursuit)

This is a brilliantly useful book. Caroline Webb has a quite exceptional range of organisational experience. She uses it to review a vast span of the latest academic 'thinking about thinking' in the clearest possible way. And then she applies this wisdom to help us all sort out the frazzle of our own working day. Her approach is utterly straightforward but based in deep insights into how human beings really behave. (Peter Day, BBC Business Correspondent, Presenter of In Business and Global Business)

Years ago I was a rower, and in sport everyone knows you need to pay attention to yourself, your intent and your mindset, to be at your best. This book reminded me of all I learned from those days about the importance of having the right attitude. I found it a great, practical guide to applying these and other helpful psychological insights in business - something we do all too infrequently. Built solidly on the latest research, brought to life with storytelling, it offers many simple ways to boost your performance and give you a better day at work - and if you're a leader, it will show you how to make sure that your colleagues are on top form, too. (Matt Brittin, President of Google Europe, Middle East & Africa, former rowing World Championship medalist and British Olympic team member)

How to Have a Good Day speaks to every area of your workday and shows how making a few critical adjustments to your everyday behavior will leave you amazed by the results. By applying the lessons in Webb's book, all based on science, you'll maximize your performance and be more energized than ever. (Marshall Goldsmith, bestselling author of Triggers, MOJO and What Got You Here Won’t Get You There)

An absolute must read for the millions of people struggling to overcome the challenges and stresses of work and family life. Caroline Webb's deep dive into ground-breaking new behavioral and neuroscience research gives us the tools to empower everyone to have a better, more fulfilling day, every day. Finally, we can say, 'Good morning,' and mean it! (Linda Kaplan Thaler, author of Grit to Great)

In How to Have a Good Day, Caroline Webb offers practical advice rooted in the latest science and psychology for anyone who wants to take a more intentional approach to life and enjoy the greater productivity and success that comes from doing so. If you want to stop reacting to your life and start living it, this book will get you moving in the right direction. (Bryce G. Hoffman, author of American Icon)

Love this book. Got it as an audiobook first but had to get a hard copy so I can highlight about a half of it. Really well researched and methodically presented tips and tricks.

A genuinely interesting and useful book written in a very engaging style. The book is full of useful ways in which you really can create better (more productive, more enjoyable and more fulfilling) days at work and at home. Practical advice and examples without being patronising from an author who skilfully blends science and personal experience. The book is much more than "to do lists revisited". Highly recommended!

I love how Caroline Webb combines psychology, neuroscience and behavioural economics in this book. There's the right level of understandable science, personal stories and practical advice. I found myself thumbing back to the Resilience chapter today, and last week it was the Intention Setting that helped me Have a Good Day. I've used the advice on email (both how to tackle one that you don't want to send and how to deal with email overload). I also have used her advice on how to tackle a big task that threatened to be jeopardised by procrastination (or as I know now, the brain's desire to do the easier thing, and the task that is 'top of mind'). Excellent time management ideas - I set an alarm when I'm writing at my desk now to remind me when 90 minutes is up so I go exercise or change tasks. Highly recommend.

Straightforward, practical tips from the start. This is grounded and evidence based about how your brain works and how to use that knowledge to feel better and get more done every day. I have read a few books on this topic but this one took me further and is completely applicable to my day to day work. Highly recommended.
