From the Back Cover

What frustrates me more than anything is all the advice people out there are giving about how to be happy. Things like: be grateful, live in the now, surrender, stop judging others, lower expectations, do what you love... It's all the same thing just said in different ways.

And although I agree these are all important keys to happiness, we've heard it already, we know! My question was: how do I stop judging others or lower expectations? Huh?

How exactly do I do that? Show me!

That's what this book is: a practical guide of actions that, if followed, will result in a happier, more peaceful way of living. I guarantee that if you follow the keys, steps, and suggestions in this book, your life will change.

I read this book in under two hours! It's well-written, straight forward, funny, insightful and easy to follow. I wouldn't even describe myself as remotely unhappy, but I picked it up and found many practical ways to handle situations and emotions that we all can relate to. This book is different than most because it actually gives you examples of HOW to be happier and appreciate life, rather than just telling you to be happier and enjoy life more like the majority of self-help or spiritual books. I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and would 100% recommend it to everyone, happy or unhappy. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll relate, and most importantly you will walk away with actual tools on how to live a more appreciative and fulfilling life.

I did not expect much when I first purchased this book because I thought it will be just like many other books - full of theory and concept; but I bought it anyway because I think the author deserves it since he has dedicated his time in helping many others in finding their happiness through his website. However, when reading his book, I suddenly realized many new things about my true self that I never knew before. I felt that this book is very practical and concise as if the author knew me and my condition very well. It is very easy to understand and to apply. I found it is very, very helpful because everything in this book came from his own painful and experience like mine. Reading it, I can feel that he has put all his heart into this book and all the best of his intention to help people finding their own happiness. I really like this book and would recommend people to read it. It has helped me see my direction and give me guidance on what to do on the way to my happiness. I hope it will help you too.

It was a joy to read Happiness for the Practical Mind. The book is a guide that takes you through to steps of finding your authentic self and finding happiness.

The author starts with a look into his own troubled life and then the steps he took, and now teaches, to find fulfillment. There is a lot of self awareness work to be done, and practical steps for meditation, right through to how to deal with negative people.

I'm glad to have found this book - it was a great read.

Inspiring, motivational, I really enjoyed this book! It has helped me understand certain aspects of life and specially realize how much I was missing by seeking happiness in others without realizing that happiness is within me. Thank you to the author for sharing this story and for helping me view life in a different perspective. Life is wonderful and we are surrounded by blessings.

Happiness is a very complex subject and this book is easy to follow. But more importantly it made me think. There were lots of good points that had me re-evaluating my thoughts and questioning my actions. I am still thinking about the story of how just letting go is not enough; you have to turn it over to fully let it go. Like the title says, this book is full of practical advice - and it makes a lot of sense.
