Editorial Reviews

Review

Just hearing the title of Harry Hoover's Get Glad makes it pretty clear what it's about. Get Glad is a short and sweet guide (less than 70 pages!) that doesn't aspire to achieving total, utter, eternal happiness, instead aiming to simply make your life happier. Happiness, Harry points out, is too lofty a goal to achieve; everyone is sad or upset sometimes and that's okay!

This quick little read explores how happiness is a choice and lists different ways to become happier. Being grateful, living in the moment, having close friends and finding a purpose are all explored in just enough depth to expertly walk the line between insightful and overkill. While the book is short, it certainly doesn't lack specifics - Harry has numerous exercises and some of the most extensive lists I've ever seen in a book (one lists 500 potential things to be grateful for!).

What I really loved about this book is that it chose a few really effective ways to become happier and then tackles them very well. 

-- Official Review Online Book Club 4 out of 4 Stars

"This wonderful little book is indeed a"practical guide to a happier life" written by a wise man who communicates clearly and compellingly. It is appropriate for those who enjoy the holiday season and for those who struggle during it. After listing the top 7 reasons why people are not happy, Hoover suggests ways to overcome these concerns and then directs us toward a more practical goal: happier, not happy,as the latter is harder to define.

Key to improving our attitude is gratitude. Count your blessings, not your problems. Take some practical steps: get enough sleep, eat wisely and often, exercise regularly. Make some more profound changes: be grateful, be mindful, be a friend. Most importantly, figure out your Why, your Purpose, and pursue it with commitment."

-- Douglas Winslow Cooper, Ph.D.

 
"Great book. It really gives you guidance on how to be happy.They main keys are gratitude and taking responsibility for your actions. I think myself a reasonably happy person but Harry Hoover shows me why and how to get happier - if that is possible. This is a must read for those who feel they are victims and that their unhappiness is the fault of others! I quote Harry's reason #3 for one's unhappiness: "Inability to accept responsibility for your life. Unhappy people tend to view themselves as victims, that life is hard and out of their control. Instead of figuring a way out of a problem, the unhappy person wallows in the unfairness of lift. Once you accept that you bear responsibility for your life, you are on the road to happiness." There are many good pointers on how to be happy - don't covet what others have,appreciate what you have. My concern is that those who need this advice most,are so unhappy that they will not read it!"

"Harry Hoover's Get Glad - Your Practical Guide to a Happier Life, is a stimulating personal growth book that begins with Hoover's own story of overcoming early obstacles in life. His central theme is gratitude, and rightly so. His ideas are recounted in an authentic way that will keep you turning the pages. I was hooked from the first paragraph. I have read many self-help books with impractical, difficult to implement programs. This is not a weighty book of theories, but rather one that can be read,and then re-read, and then recommended to others who intentionally want to live with more glad thoughts and feelings. Hoover's book is organized for a quick read with pithy principles and lists that will inspire.

In one of my favorite sections, Hoover creatively compares the seven steps of wine-tasting to seven steps for getting glad. He has many sensible suggestions for clearing obstacles that keep glad feelings from flourishing, which I practiced today. I recommend Get Glad for anyone who -simply put - wants to Get Glad."


-- Kenneth Mills, Ph.D. 

From the Author

My purpose in life is to help others on their self-improvement journey. I believe that all people should have some measure of happiness in their lives, so I wrote Get Glad to show readers how I got happier. It worked for me. It can work for you.
