I agree with Dr. Phillips; it is often difficult and intimidating to start exploring feelings of anxiety, sadness and anger. Not knowing where to begin can leave one feeling helpless, falsely believing that things are never going to change. This book offers insight into thought patterns that trigger these emotions as well as strategies to deal with them in a healthy way, giving the reader a sense of hope and direction. Reading them I found myself smile time and time again, recognizing thought patterns that sometimes lead me to experience "sad triangles", "anxious eggs" and "angry clouds". I felt uplifted and empowered by Happy Circle's non-judgmental, hands-on approach to regain control over my emotions. I highly recommend this book. Whether you are looking for a resource to engage others in a conversation about anxiety, depression and anger or desire to explore these issues for yourself, you will not be disappointed!

Again, a gift given by someone who loves me, so paying it forward with a gift to another is a must! Amazingly enough, I am troubled by the ignorance of any reader who looks at this kind of book expecting number of pages, illustrations and number of words per page to be all that matters to them. The Incredible value of this publication is precisely its simplicity in presentation. Right to the heart of the matter, the illustrations effective, memorable, fun, never distracting oneself from the content of the message. Sadness, depression, anxiety, anger, they all have their persistent and constant catalysts, Dr. Phillips presents those in a brilliant and simple way. If anyone has ever tried to read any other book regarding those matters, they would know how difficult, overwhelming and actually discouraging they can all be. This book presents the referred subjects in simplicity that can lead a few to want to dismiss its value, but the wise, the perceptive, the bright, the intelligent minds will rejoice, enjoy , partake and share of the gift that this hopeful, wonderful book has to offer!

Hardly any content. A very simple drawing takes up a single page. Read the 94 pages in 5 minutes. Questions and answer section for each difficulty, ie anxiety, depression and anger are the same. Brand new book is cheaply made with pages you can see through.

Resources for educating children about mental illness are often few and far-between. After all, it is a topic that even adults have difficulty comprehending. The greater tragedy, though, is that children often feel the effects of mental illness most keenly. Dr. Geoffrey Phillips has helped fill this need through his Happy Circle trilogy. Each tackles a different emotion commonly associated with mental illness: anxiety, sadness and anger.

Happy Circle Meets Anxious Egg considers the nature of an anxious mind. Anxious Egg was once a happy circle before cares and worries weighed him down and shaped him into an egg. The book explores the old adage that ‘a burden shared is a burden halved.” Support can be provided by many people and in a variety of ways, such as sharing troubles with family and friends, participating in online discussion groups or finding peer support. Happy Circle provided this support to Anxious Egg, allowing him to become a happy circle once more.

Happy Circle Meets Sad Triangle will likely resonate keenly with those who have been affected by depression. Much like Anxious Egg, the sad triangle was once a happy circle. Her sad angles were created by self-deprecation, unease about how others people perceived her and the certainty that these feelings will never go away. Sad angles do not go away all at once and the ending of Sad Triangle reflects this. But as Happy Circle suggests, “…if you think of only NOW, only today… not tomorrow, not the future, only today… that stops one Sad Angle.” With one of the angles removed, Sad Triangle becomes what Happy Circle calls a ’Circangle,’ which looks “’OK’… and soon will be a Happy Circle again some day.
