The author has very inspiring, funny and unique illustrations (and some great "one-liners").

A wonderful book with many reminders that you should always have in your life because it's quite easy to forget them with all the hustle and bustle of everyday living. Should definitely read at least one page a day and always keep it nearby.

This is such a little jem. I love this book, it's so straight forward. It packs a LOT of great words of wisdom and life reminders in a small space. It's a great book to open when you are feeling down or just need a little lift in your spirits. I have given this as a gift many times and had great results. A good buy.

Some would say this does not count as a book, but these would be people who are not very happy.

A small book with an idea on every page to be happy. It's one of my favorite happiness books.

I received this book as a gift. Not sure who from or even when but I am sure that I plan on keeping it in close proximity forever. It's a book that you always keep on the table, it doesn't need to be put away. It shouldn't be - you'd be fooling yourself.

I love this book! I keep it on my nightstand and read it each night. It helps me to stay focused on what is really important in life and helps me to remember how I can actively pursue happiness through simple, daily activities and thoughts. I love all of Ms. Sheehan's books, especially the ones she wrote and designed for children. One is a "Be Happy" book for them and another one is about love-"Love Is You And Me." They are just great.

I remember the illustrations as much, if not more than, the advice. I love books that combine messages with illustrations of the messages. A picture is definitely worth a thousand words, though for this book the picture only needs to convey about five or six wise words. The first and last messages are the best.

Thanks author!
