Just what I needed to reconnect with my passion for writing. The exercises were especially helpful for discovering how creativity can bring happiness, and I am happiest when I am creating!

Happiness Rehab is a delightful and helpful short guide to being more creative. This book is excellent for anyone that wants to be more aware of life's surroundings and wants to get back to their youthful, creative self. You see all of those 150-200 page books about Psychology and how the brain works.... many of which make the same case as this one and try to explain to you how your thought life and such are connected to your overall happiness and creativity. Well this book has hit the nail on the head in less time and in easy to read simple language.

Just the way I like it! Thumbs up all the way.

This book is a bible for true happiness. What a brilliant book written so beautifully to inspire creativity! I am overwhelmed with how easily the authors motivated me to start my creative project. I began as soon as I read the last page of this book and I've never been happier. Long live HAPPINESS REHAB, a sure best seller by all accounts.

OK, I buy that creativity can break you out of ruts and make life more fufilling. Got it. But I was expecting a book about creative problem-solving--they really should have thought harder about the subtitle because its very misleading.

As for the suggestions, meh. Pretty obvious "exercises" will impress no one who has been through basic workshops, psychotherapy or training from a teacher on selected art form.

I lost interest and quit reading it, and I'm a hobbyist in music, acting, and writing--so its not as if I think creativity is stupid!

This is a very good book. I LIKE the section on hitting low points in our lives and creating through them.

This is a super book. The reference to the Wizard was a great way to begin, I thought - the scarecrow already had a brain, the tin man already had a heart - and you are already creative! This book provides a light, practical, obvious (but who knew?) set of steps to follow in order to release the creative being you are, so you can begin, progress, overcome obstacles and grow as a creative person. The use of two characters all the way through the book enabled me to "observe" my "fellow workshop members", so I could learn from them, rather than just "doing it on my own". I really liked the "Magic of Firsts" and the "explore/experiment" ideas.
I understand the learning process, I enjoy personal development and so I've looked at, read and got involved in quite a few self-improvement books and courses over the years. This really is, in my opinion, one of the best on personal creativity - and certainly better than the $26 "NYT best seller" I bought a couple of months ago.

This book reminds us that creating is not as simple as saying 'I'm gonna get this done in a weekend' (although this can happen). Preparing a tasty and satisfying meal begins with the right tools and ingredients...then to be appreciated by an honored guest or family member....we do it for them, we do it for us. Happiness ensues! The same is true in writing (and other creative endeavors). We find that the right creative environment opens the mind to develop full-faceted ideas within the pages of a book....we then invite others to this tasty and satisfying 'mind meal' hoping for a sign of appreciation in return. The exercises within the book help you to find that creative environment for yourself and provides tools and ingredients to complete your writing recipe.
