From the importance of sleep to the imperative to listen to our own inner voice for ways to deal with the daily time crunches we all feel, this book lays out a path for each of us to look within and make our lives more authentic and fulfilling." (Sheryl Sandberg, Facebook COO and author of Lean In)

"Once in a generation, a book comes along that can truly transform your life. This is it. The most unhappy people are those who have achieved unfathomable money, power, and fame and found that it didn’t bring them the happiness they were seeking. Now what?

You'll be glad you did." (Ellen Goodman, Pulitzer prize winning columnist and bestselling author of I Know Just What You Mean)

The style of writing was irritating - a mix of journalistic and academic writing that seemed to pluck evidence from random studies and surveys to justify every point made. The barriers to change for an ordinary person were not acknowledged, and there were few practical steps recommended to achieving a thriving life. The vast majority of people who are failing to thrive are either in poor relationships they feel unable to change, in jobs where they work too hard for too little pay, with debts and childcare they seem unable to afford or with ill health that is not getting better. It is difficult for people in these situations to instantly get a job in a company that allows pets, has meditation rooms or yoga classes, or to take the time and finance required to change their lives. All of this is ignored, as if the reader is in an ideal practical position and simply has to join a yoga class!
Changing behaviour is not about evidence of what works; it is about taking the small steps towards a healthier life, and finding ways of overcoming the barriers to do so.
Definitely a feel good book that will make you feel more positive and motivated! A great read! A great role model!
