I bought this book when it was entitled "10,000 Things to be Happy About". Just picked it off a shelf in the bookstore one day when my mom was trying to survive her experimental chemo treatments and the rest of us were struggling to cope with her impending loss. That day, this book was like a shaft of sunlight splintering a murky room. It made me remember that there are good things in life no matter what crushing sadness we were experiencing. I'd just pick up the book, open it to any page, and I'd just start reading that wonderful list of happy things. It was like a lifeline to me at times. I've since purchased it as a gift for another person going through the same experience and will be purchasing it again soon to give as a gift once more to someone experiencing their own kind of pain. Sometimes we just need to be reminded that life is still good. To the author, a simple heartfelt thank you from me.

This book is so fun!

It's an easy read that I like to take to the park with my highlighter, and peruse through while the children are climbing on the playground. It's also a good reminder to do things that you've forgotten about but LOVE. This would be a great coffee table book, or a gift to a friend who's already high on life.

Highly recommended.

this is fun to browse through periodically - i used to keep it on the coffee table in our livingroom and kids would pick it up and just turn to any page at random - and it really is true that happiness is more about wanting what we have than having what we want - well worth $10 to invest in learning to be happy with what is -

The whole book is pretty much recorded thoughts of the author. I read the prologue and it clearly states "that make me happy". It's not for everyone. Kipfer shares all the small things that made her happy from Holland Cheese to maiden names. I don't even know what most of the things she's listed down, just because I didn't live HER life to be happy about.
Honestly I do feel like I've wasted my money on this just because I feel it's incapable of making me "happy", even though that sounds pretty pathetic resorting to books such as this to make me happy.

I bought a copy of this book for kindle; and have a dog-earred copy on my nightstand. God bless this Author. She inspired me decades ago to change my thinking and to be more aware of small joys and happinesses and pleasures. I owe her about 14,000 hugs. Thank you directly to Barbara Ann Kipfer, you are charming and I hope all your karma catches you up daily and hugs you. <3

The book lists things that make one happy. I have shared this book with so many people; have bought and given away more copies than I remember. A wonderful gift and people can't open the book to any random page and Not find at least one thing on each page that charms them and makes them smile. When I stumbled across this book I started reading through it and underlined things that spoke to me and dated them. It is a kind of diary for me to go back and look at my highlights and remember how old I was when specific things touched me. I was so inspired I started keeping my own book, and still will randomly jot things down to insert when I get home.

I hope you give this book a chance and enjoy the smiles and the camraderie from sharing it, as I have.

I totally LOVE this book. If ever you need a little cheering up, this is the book to get. Once you start reading the things that make you happy, a smile will quickly come to your face, sometimes even a chuckle...

Format: Paperback
I purchased this book to hand out during a Thanksgiving Eve worship service at my church. The list of things to be happy about are also things to be thankful for. I like the thoughts of happiness from the very little to the very big. Every joyful part of life is something for which to be thankful and I like the author reminding us of this fact. As a result, we can notice more than we have before and our lives will be richer, more connected to others and the earth, and more at peace. Reading the list of 14,000 things does not have to be read all at one time. You can pick up the book for short preiods of time, smile and think of your own list of things to be happy about. Very uplifting.

To whom it may concern,

We are truly enjoying '14,000 Things to be Happy About'. Just last Sunday, I referenced it during the Sunday Sermon entitled, "What does it take to make you Happy?"

With today's world in such chaos, with wars and runors of wars, nation rising up against nation, children against parents, divorce rates up, even among Christians, it is quite refreshing to find so many things to be happy about!

Thanks Amazon and friends! And do please keep positive books like this coming!
