Dr Robert Holden's books are a true gift.
W. Riche
These paradigm shifts can help us find a whole new way of operating and thinking about what it is we truly want and need, and how we can live our lives being happy.
Julia Peniston Pitt
I was thinking like most of us that happiness was something I had to earn, find, give, deserve and grow into.

I read this book cover to cover on a long transatlantic flight and could not put it down. After every chapter I felt my life had shifted and transformed and I could not believe there was still more to come with the rest of the book! With every chapter I learned new insights which led me to feel transformed and as if my life would now be lived from a whole new perspective.

With warmth, humour and wisdom, Robert takes us through is 8-week happiness program (which I have done by the way and it is amazing!) and this book has truly changed my life, as has the 8-week course, which I did in person.

This is an essential book for everyone who is interested in being happy (and I have never met anyone who isn't ?!)

If you think "Be Happy" is light and fluffy pop-psyche, guess again. Dr. Holden is brilliant and this book is incredibly thorough, delving deeply into our psychology and spirituality- there is so much covered in this book. I'm very grateful for Dr. Holden's wonderful contributions to our world.

I considered myself a lucky and happy person. But I found that there were many things in life that I hated and felt frustration with. I could be somewhat manic, oscillating between having grand enthusiasm for life and a dark hatred for everything I perceived as broken or corrupt.
Robert Holden put me on a path to true enlightenment. He gave me a sense that I could live without judgements, and showed me that my frustrations came from me and were ultimately about me.
Much of his views are derived from A Course in Miracles, where forgiveness is king. And it is king! I constantly forgive myself and everyone around me of all the things that used to drive me to anger and have learned that my ego is an illusion. The battle with the ego is an ongoing process. But simply knowing that there are no enemies "out there" but instead "in here" makes all the difference. Thanks Robert Holden.

Format: Hardcover
This book is written with such great generosity. Robert shares his Happiness 8-week course with the world and brings it alive with great passion and astonishing depth yet keeping it joyfully alive with great warmth and humour.
This read searches into every single area of our lives - and then goes that little bit further. Its holistic, spiritual, joyful, open and as said, so very, very generous. A totally fascinating enquiry into our own individual thinking around the whole concept of happiness and where it is and isn't in our lives - and, as the great Louise Hay says in her forward to the book, 'do yourself a favour and do all the exercises'.
I have had the great privilege of actually being on this course and it has completely shifted my life for the better and given me timeless reminders and a deeper sense of staying open to all possibilites.
This book will serve as a constant reminder of TRUE happiness.
Give yourself a gift and enjoy this book.

If you're just starting out in self-help books, psychology or laws of attraction (LOA) then this is a good book for you. It's a brief skimming of the basics and foundations of happiness. But if you're looking for deeper subject matter (as the preview led me to believe it was) then this book really isn't for you. If the book had been better represented, as a brief overview of major topics, then I would have given it 4 or even 5 stars. My 2 star rating is to warn others that regardless of how it's presented, this book only gives brief overviews and quick introductions.

Format: Hardcover
This is the best book I've read on the steps to take--whether mental, physical, emotional or spiritual--to be happy. It answered a lot of questions I've had about happiness--if I think I'll be happy when I have a great job, house of my dreams, loving partner and I don't have those now, will I be unhappy in the meantime? Yet, pretending to be happy or faking happiness doesn't work either. Hmmm...the author gives you an abundance of innovative and practical ways of thinking and living to be happy that make sense. I love the question posed in the book: on a scale of 1 to 100, how happy are we? If we're 80% happy, what would it take to get to 100? That concentrates your thinking and you think of ways to be 100% happy. As happiness is the ultimate value--why do things? they make me happy!, and as happiness is so synonymous with love, understanding how to Be Happy is invaluable and until now I thought somewhat mysterious and unteachable. Dr. Holden makes the process graspable, fun and creative. I read his other book first Happiness Now and wondered if they'd be repetitive. Not at all, I found. I recommend reading Happiness Now also as it includes a backdrop of information. This is like attending a workshop on how to be happy, and is delightful! It can change your life.....
