Although I think the title of the book is possibly a bit misleading, it also makes a good point.

This book is not time consuming and is without a doubt one that makes you realize that changing your life is worth the happiness you will feel in the long run.
Silver's Reviews
Everything was laid out in an easy to understand manner, and having all of the exercises at the end of each of the chapters was great.

Although I think the title of the book is possibly a bit misleading, it also makes a good point. Throughout the various chapters of the book, Cohen lays out a foundation that people can take to reach happiness.

Each chapter is geared towards a different type of happiness that you might want to reach and each chapter has mental exercises to complete. The exercises range from the ordinary, like keeping a journal, to the more unexpected, like traveling into your subconscious to receive text messages from it.

Overall, I think this is a great read and almost anyone could relate to at least one of the chapters, if not all of them. Check it out and pass it on to someone that you think might enjoy it!

This book is very inspirational, has great advice, and humor as well.

The way the book is organized and the sub topics for each chapter keep your interest and truly make you think about the comments and advice and how these suggestions take a little effort but are definitely worth trying.
The ending of each chapter had mental "workouts" to help you get on track and gave you guidance for trying each idea....a very creative idea.

The entire book was uplifting, and made you feel good after completing a chapter. You definitely won't be a pessimist after reading this book.

This book is not time consuming and is without a doubt one that makes you realize that changing your life is worth the happiness you will feel in the long run.

I definitely enjoyed trying the mental workouts....I need to do more and not miss a day. In my opinion, your brain is pliable no matter how old you are, and this book isn't only for the youngsters. Give it a try....you will be happy you did....and you may be happier than you ever thought you could be. I am working on it.

Thanks for the copy of your wonderful book, Brian.

The Post-College Guide to Happiness is exactly what the title suggests, a guide to happiness.
Asking you what you think will make you happy.

This book isn't just for people that have just left college, it is for everyone even if you are older with kids, or working all the time and are on your own.

It is split into chapters like True Love & Contentment and Gratification and Peace.
All of the chapters talk about different angles of happiness or how to achieve happiness from not so happy situations.

It is jam packed with ways that you could to start feeling more positive and making your life happier.

I found that this book was a pleasure to read. At the end of every chapter were various exercises.

What I have learnt from this book is - If something makes you unhappy you can change this.

Format: Paperback
I can remember quite clearly my college years and what I expected my life to be like after I graduated. I, like a good amount of people I know, thought that my happiness would come from experiencing some semblance of the following: I would get married to my college boyfriend and we would be eternally happy together each and every day; we would both get the perfect job that pays lots of money and would also somehow give us ample free time to spend that money; we would live the perfect life and unhappiness would rarely touch us. I am sure anyone reading this can guess that reality was not a factor in this dream of mine and that things did not turn out exactly as planned. Luckily for me, I am an optimistic, generally happy person by nature so having all of my vague goals not come true did not throw me into a pit of unhappiness. However, I often found (and still find) that I have times of general dissatisfaction and unhappiness without being able to pinpoint exactly why. The Post-College Guide to Happiness helps layout some of the reasons why people are unhappy and gives not only advice on how to become a happier person but gives exercises that can jump start you on your way.

The book is divided into eight chapters: Brain Bliss, Money and Happiness, True Love and Contentment, Education and Joy, Gratification and Peace, Creativity and Livelong Dreams, God and High Spirits and A Fully Rounded Life. Each chapter also contains exercises specifically geared towards these components of happiness and the reader is able to customize which exercises would be most beneficial for them.

The word happiness means different things to different people. What makes one person happy doesn't necessarily make another person happy. So what's the difference?

In Bryan Cohen's book, The Post College Guide to Happiness, the author relates how he found happiness in his life. He decided to share his story with others, by writing a guide to happiness for recent college graduates. Let me tell you, though, I've been out of college for many years and I still found the book enlightening. So no matter your age, you're likely to see something here that will refresh your happiness if you're already a happy person, or help you in your search for happiness. The book contains seven categories with workouts and exercises. You have the chapter "Brainy Bliss" for those I a rut. Sometimes I'm comfortable in my little rut; other times it gets boring and I need to make changes. The Post College Guide to Happiness gives you a workout to help you break out. Or how about the chapter "Money and Happiness." Of course, money brings happiness. Or does it? Do you have goals? If not, this book will help you set your goals. There's way too much information here to tell you everything. My favorite chapter is Chapter 3, "True Love and Contentment." It's all about how we react to a given situation. Thought I haven't had a chance to try them yet, the workouts look promising.

The author uses examples of real people, telling their stories and suggesting further reading. He even include a "controversial chapter" in trusting God as your supply. I agree with his thoughts on prayer. A prayer should begin with "thank you." At the beginning, your prayers should be positive. Then you need faith and to believe. That's all I'll say now. I don't want to give anything away about the book.
