4.0 out of 5 stars Simple guidance, practical for everyday awareness October 10, 2007
Format:Paperback
Barbara Ann Kipfer writes simple books with simple messages that can be signifantly life changing. Once again she delivers, this time using a Buddhist framework.

Focusing on the themes of Compassion, Kindness, Peace, Karma, Meditation and Happiness, Kipfer offers a short introduction (sort of a motive for living in the 1325 Ways she suggests) and then offers brief nuggets of inspiration from either herself or quotes or tips on how to apply her "ways" to be happy.

The quotes from others include wisdom from Buddha, e.e. cummings, Dalai Lama, and Anne Frank.

I loved this advice, "A pebble in your pocket can serve as a teacher, a fellow practitioner - a 'mindfulness bell' - allowing you to pause and return to your breathing."

In the compassion section, "Have a sense of gratitude to everything, even difficult emotions, because of their potential in waking you up."

A reader could turn to any page and simply meditate on what is found there. Quality ideas are found on each page.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ways to Be Happy Review November 12, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a cute book. Barbara Ann Kipfer is a wonderful writer, and I hope that others will read her works.

Personally, I think there are MORE than 1325 ways to be happy, but at least this book will get people thinking about other ways to BE happy.

So that is what I think the purpose of this book is -- it sets a foundation for people to start thinking again.

Often times in our hectic lives people stop thinking and just settle into a rut. Our brains start to stagnate.

With books like these, our brains get stimulated to start the thinking process all over again.

I highly recommend it for people who feel like their lives have gotten into a rut, and who need a stimulus to get them out of that situation.

5.0 out of 5 stars must read July 5, 2008
Format:Paperback
This is what I would call a "meaty" book. A great many, well, 1325, nuggets in here and I'm thoroughly enjoying it. I really like how it is easy to read as much or as little as I feel like. One can read just one of the 1325 ways and sort of spend the day with that idea in mind. I also am finding it a great thing to read when I first wake up, right before I go to sleep, or in situations like busrides where extended focus (continuity) isn't necessary (or possible).

Love the little pieces of advice so concisely put in a single sentence. I always keep it at my desk at work, and start reading a random page whenever I am confused or frustrated. Instantly makes me feel better.
