Editorial Reviews


  • "The Happiness Journal is designed to be savored in small doses. It's a simple book that will leave readers feeling refreshed and uplifted with every 'sip.'" - Blueink Review
  • "Incisive observations on happiness drawn from Eastern philosophy." - Kirkus Reviews
  • "Author Viet Hung's perspective as a Vietnamese businessman adds a unique spin to THE HAPPINESS JOURNAL, and his earnest and easy to engage with writing style and use of QR codes to expand the impact of the book is both inventive and effective." - Indie Reader
  • "An engaging collection of astute observations. The cumulative effect is feeling a sense of peace and hope - if not outright happiness than a real sense of potential for appreciating what life has to offer, and avoiding those things that bring it down, so the book is successful in its intent. Anyone seeking advice and comfort, whether for currently arising challenges or a general sense of longing for a more peaceful path, will benefit from Hung's well-considered, sensible, and stimulating selections." - Self-Publishing Review
  • "A very informative book that would guide us towards an ultimate success. "The Happiness Journal" by Viet Hung is definitely the most reliable source of warding off all the burdens of a depressed and worried mind. It acts like a tranquilizer and heals the mind more than a prescribed dose of a tranquilizer might ever do. The book in itself is a well-established rehabilitation center, it shows us the way towards a life full of all the meanings that we wouldn't be able to explore otherwise." - Reedsy Discovery
