One of the hallmarks of Michael's writing is his ability to take pretty sophisticated stuff and make it simple to understand and put into practice. He uses a blend of personal anecdotes, stories and metaphors, and step-by-step instructions to get his points across.
As with his first book, Michael doesn't take a "woo-woo" approach to the topic. There's no "Angel Therapy" in this book. Michael writes about happiness with rigorous application of applied psychology, yet his style couldn't be more accessible.
The book takes many of the findings of positive psychology and happiness research and rather than just presenting it and saying, "figure out how to do this," he walks you through applying it to your own life.
Part one examines the link between body-state and state-of-mind. Michael gives physical exercises that show you how to control your attitude by controlling your physical body. The exercises can even be done while you're reading.
Part two shows us how the stories we tell ourselves determine our happiness. He weaves in positive psychology's learned optimism research, showing how to change internal stories to be more optimistic and powerful. This section also covers anxiety, fear, and panic attacks.
Part three covers the gamut of our emotions, including self-worth (including a 360-degree feedback exercise to find out how you're perceived by others), gratitude, compassion, attachment to planning, and living a life of inspiration.
All in all, the book's content is excellent. If anything, there's so much here that it's hard to put it all into practice. I've adopted the practices one or two at a time over the last year (I read the UK version the moment it came out) and the improvement in my mood and happiness has been incredible.
In the flow of this thinking I find his next book directly coaches the reader on a way of not only making "Happiness" a feeling, but a way of life.
Wisely, the founding fathers of America included the pursuit of happiness in the charter for citizens of a new kind of country, the United States. For your new kind of life, Neill wisely outlines a pursuit for anyone to make happiness their reality in a fun, easy-to-read manner. I believe this book on happiness is in many ways even better than his first in that it is VERY practical, deeper and illustrates his passion for life that makes you, the reader, begin to make your own peace and success a personal concern. Words are powerful, the words in this book and the words that you use to define your life as Neill makes so clear here.
Michael makes happiness "now" a possibility for anyone; outlining a simple (not simplistic) series of three parts "Feeling Good," "Feeling Better" and finally "Feeling Happy" which are broken into chapters that are easy and fun to digest and understand.
Trust me, you will at least know how you could be happy after reading this, even if you don't give yourself permission to be happy right away. Read it, and open your life to the possibility of it being generally a happy one regardless of your circumstances. I have read a few books on the subject and this is one of the top ones in the field.Read more ›
You can change this old habit, limiting beliefs, right now with Michael Neill's scientifically sound HAPPINESS FORMULA, which he tested for himself and many others. All you have to do is order the book, read, and follow the step-by-step instructions. Yes! It's that simple! Your brain will be configured automatically to a "FEEL HAPPY NOW!" state, which installation will be permanent. Your old program no longer runs successfully. You can't get your unhappiness back. No reason for you to wait for happiness to knock at your doorstep. You can create your happiness NOW!
If you want to be HAPPIER, you will order Michael Neill's other book, "You Can Have What You Want" together with this book. I am a life coach, and use these two books as my coaching bible. They have worked for me, and for my clients without any side effect. "Too good to be true," you will say, however, you will be surprised when you read it. "Try it, you will like it!" It's better than the "green eggs and ham."
