Editorial Reviews

Review


"There is No App for Happiness is the new playbook for how to survive THRIVE in our modern culture. It served as a great reality check for me personally."
—Kerri Kelly, Executive Director, Off the Mat, Into the World™

“In a world where there appears to be an app for everything and many people have more virtual friends than real ones, Max has written a powerful and important book. Highly informative, thought-provoking, empowering and action oriented…a book that can help transform lives and create deep personal connections."
—Russ Nash, former Global Managing Director, Accenture Health Practice

"Direct, practical and accessible. Profound, transcendent and illuminating. Max Strom has authored an important guide to living a more authentic and meaningful 21st century life."
—John W. McBurney, M.D. Integrative Neurologist

“Comprehensive, focused and immediately useful, There is No App for Happiness is an articulate and highly readable synthesis of unique thinking and a framework through which to apply it to everyday life. This should be recommended reading for all leaders and development professionals.”
—Travis Southwick, Lieutenant Colonel, United States Army

“The marvel of reading Max Strom's book is to be convinced one can follow his three life imperatives to take back control of our lives and the private reality that is the deepest self. It is an astonishing work propelling the reader towards a new and more meaningful experience of living.”
—Jeff Carter, Chief Strategist at Eyelock Corporation and author of No-Limit and The Art of War for Cancer

This book is one of the greatest gifts I have ever received. There are so many chapters that I could comment on, but the one that stood out the most to me (and the one I reread often) is the chapter on grief. Max Strom does an amazing job of explaining not only what grief is, feels, and looks like, but how to come through it. I have to deal with grief on a very regular basis in my career, and this chapter for me was life affirming. I have shared his wise words with many families and friends of loved ones who have just died. His words gave me hope and have helped me to find a path of healing in my own life. I was very blessed to be able to attend one of his workshops, and I highly recommend going to one, if you can. His books are wonderful and inspiring, and his DVDs are great. I often do his yoga DVD. His workshop, though, has been transformational for me. He is truly a yoga master who practices what he writes and teaches. I hope you will give yourself the opportunity to read this book and look at his other works. I am very happy that I took the time and made some key changes in my life. May he touch your life, as he has mine. Namaste.

This book is so important for everyone to read. Max Strom breaks down a complicated issue that we have in society today; that of the breakdown of intimacy and meaning as a result of our dependence on technology as our primary means of connection. Happiness takes some work and this book gives us a simple plan for getting there through practices that involve mind, body and spirit. I am inspired to read more of his books. Awesome! Highly recommend.

This is a wonderfully written book, packed with words of wisdom. A very very valuable read. Highly recommended!

As a side note, it scares me to realize that as much as we could truly benefit from reading this beautiful book - we might no longer have the attention span long enough for book reading...

And I was going to say something more - but I forgot what it was. What were we talking about?

(Just kidding.)

Buy this book, and you'll truly enjoy reading it.

Max Strom has created a fabulous handbook for life with "There is No App for Happiness". Packed with deep observations, powerful wisdom and practical exercises, Max cuts to the core of why we are not happy and how we can get there. His decades of sensitive teaching shine through these pages and I am planning to start my second cover-to-cover reading within days - it is excellent and highly recommended!

This topic is so pertinent to many of the problems - both physical and emotional - which afflict us now. Having greatly enjoyed his first book, A Life Worth Breathing, I have looked forward to the publication of this new book since viewing Max's TED talk on which it is based. He shares his clear insights in an eloquent, easily understood way, and offers specific ways to begin to make edifying changes in one's life. Max Strom is one of our finest and most graceful teacher/healers.

I have waited years for him to have this 2nd book. Just loved his first book and he uses simple language to describe complex situations; breaking it down so everyone can learn and apply. I know a lot of work went into it and yet I was done so fast reading it. I couldn't put it down. I have been re-reading it and he has great tasks for the reader to do and explore further. Max has a wonderful sense of humor and yet intelligently put together. Doing yoga or not this will help those esp in the Western parts of the world understand how happiness is an 'in-side' job.

Just like Max Strom's first book, "A Life Worth Breathing," his second book, "There is No App for Happiness," is grounded in the wisdom of the past, to teach us how to transcend the many challenges of our present, in order to co-create the kind of world we want in the future. If you read this book you will never look at your smartphone, or Facebook, or the eyes of someone else, quite the same ever again.
