Editorial Reviews

Review

"Happiness Genes is...like reading an instruction manual that tells you how to reprogram your genes for happy life. It's time for new thinking. This book is your wake-up call." --Bruce Lipton, PhD, New York Times best-selling author of The Biology of Belief

"One of the most universal and enduring spiritual teachings is that happiness is inside, not outside, and that it is our birthright. Breakthroughs in the science of epigenetics affirms this wisdom. If you are seeking greater fulfillment and happiness in your life, do not deny yourself this important book." --Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Power of Premonitions and Healing Words

"Combining recent studies showing the epigenetic effects of changing our beliefs and behaviors with the wisdom of ancient spiritual traditions, Happiness Genes is a wide-ranging survey of the science of happiness. It asks the reader provocative questions, like considering how our behaviors might be affecting the genetic expression of our children. Baird and Nadel show you how to inventory your 'happiness assets,' those relationships, possessions and situations that contribute to your happiness, and then treat them like the valuable resource that they are. Wise and practical, the book is peppered with self-reflection exercises, and ends with a 28 day program that guides you in cleaning up everything in your life that stands between you and happiness. To understand the links between what happiness looks like at the molecular level in our cells, the happiness of entire nations, and how you can take lessons from everything in between to raise your own happiness level, this book is an excellent guide." --Dawson Church, best-selling author of The Genie in Your Genes

A great and simple easy read.

This book is a great place for people to gain a general knowledge on the topics of genetics, well being, happiness, and the new and upcoming field of epigenetics.

It is harmful to diminish hope...it is courageous and worthy to promote happiness and awareness of each precious moment.

Happiness Genes: Unlock the Positive Potential Hidden in Your DNA
By James D. Baird, PhD, with Laurie Nadel, PhD
ISBN-13: 978-1-60163-105-3 (New Page Books, 2010)

Who could predict that the pursuit of happiness would lead directly to the connection between science and spirituality? As we enter higher levels of consciousness, human beings will find doors that will open to a much deeper human experience. Like most doors, they seem to be locked and the key is found in our meditative states, which can be entered only through love and compassion. The programming is already in place and Happiness Genes shows us a 28-day system to open those doors.

Format: Paperback
Happiness Genes is the perfect book for anyone interested in coming up to speed quickly on how the relatively new science of happiness can be put to practical use in our personal lives. While Happiness Genes provides readers with a veritable smorgasbord of recent research findings in the field of epigenetics, its true value comes shining through in the form of helping us more fully realize the priceless qualities of our lives that genuinely contribute to our happiness.

Happiness is a topic that deserves a great deal more attention than it typically gets, as people often seek happiness from people, places, activities and things that promise more happiness than they actualy provide. Learning to find what makes you truly happy, and how to bring more genuine happiness into your life is more than worth the price of this book.

Is it possible to undergo noticeable improvements in happiness levels in one month? Authors James Baird and Laurie Nadel reply with an enthusiastic, "Yes!" providing a natural happiness 28 day program that is simple and effective. Happiness Genes is highly recommended as an inspirational self-help book for oneself and a great gift, too!

The Happiness Genes gives me hope that anyone can overcome their genes. For the left brained amongst us the scientific proof is readily available! For those of us who are afraid of physically turning into the worst parts of their parents genes this is a real goldmine of inspiration.

Format: Paperback
The Happiness Genes is a masterpiece!! I find it filled with information that is easy to understand particularly for someone like myself who doesn't have a lot of knowledge about epigenetics. It's not just one of your common sense wisdom books! The idea that we are 'biologically wired for happiness' is a radical approach that brings the latest research to the subject. Every chapter is a blending of the happiness topic: science, history, research, self-help questions but not in a way that's esoteric or academic. That's what I really REALLY enjoy about it so much so that I have telling my friends about it and taking notes. I've learned things I didn't know before like the research on rats "When Rats Make Bad Mothers" and Dean Ornish swithing off cancer genes study.

But there was something else that stood out for me was this idea of 'Victim Chemistry' that has me thinking. The idea that believing you are a victim and how that belief can affect your chemistry is an eye-opening thought!

Reading this book is a work in progress and one that I find will be a reference of wisdom and information for my work. I've been experimenting with the 28-day Natural Happiness Program and each exercise is a blessing and opportunity that has arrived at the right time in my life!! Thank you Laurie and James!!!!

Happiness Genes: Unlock the Positive Potential Hidden in Your DNA examines the nature and concept of basic human happiness, from ancient times to present, providing biological research showing that DNA contains genes for natural happiness. The science of epigenetics provides insights into how this happiness can be controlled, making for a positive, enlightening guide for any general collection.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Baird masterfully mixes the science behind the genetics of what makes us happy humans (or not) along with the mindfulness needed to become more aware of our mental habits that can lead us to a path of happiness, and therefore, a more healthy existence. I found it very interesting that our positive state of mind can biologically turn on and off the genetic triggers in our bodies. The "Natural Happiness 28 Day Program" in the book I see as a sort of "daily devotion" to keep ones mind on an upbeat, healthy mindset track. I'll admit that I have not formally completed the 28 day program yet, but for me just the heightened awareness and positive suggestions in this area were helpful to me. As someone who is striving for simplification and who seeks internally for happiness vs. external materialistic gratification, I felt that this book read like a refreshing cool drink on a hot day. It is not a light and fluffy read, though- it is packed with scientific evidence that well illustrates the author's points. I would recommend this book to anyone who is trying to shed the negative impact of the world around us and who seeks to live a happier, healthier, more altrustic life. I also appreciated the spiritual connection to happiness as well as an interesting explanantion of what happens to our bodes biologically when we are under much stress. This book made me think differently. I recommend it as a healthy, positive approach to a happier way of life.
