Of the four books I have read by Mollie Player, this one is the most practical - and for me - inspiring.

Not in a wishy-washy way, but in a very practical way.
Mollie writes with real depth and insight, having reflected on, and learned from her various struggles and triumphs in life.

She writes with a refreshing humanist approach that is beautifully sentimental, yet practical.

Filled (like any real story worth reading) with tragedy and humour, rising above circumstances and embracing all life has to offer, accepting everything, judging nothing, learning from everything.

Each chapter of this true story has life lessons that are deep and profound, and to me have the same essense as the teachings of Tibetan Buddhism, Christianity, Zen and Hinduism - or indeed the practical non-dogmatic teachings or any great path in life.

Namely that we create our own lives.

Nobody can live our life for us, or be happy for us.

We have to CHOOSE to be happy and then go about doing the things that bring us the greateset joy in this world.

Reading this tale it is plain to see that Mollie has made what Deepak Chopra refers to as the "quantum shift" from unconscious creator, to conscious creation of her world, and all she manifests.

Mollie's story is poignant and uplifting, and best of all, deeply human, and certainly had some insights to teach me.

Thanks for sharing your wisdom Mollie, I hope others enjoy this book and find it as valuable as I did. Please write more books!

This book is one of the most inspirational books I have ever read!

I understood and connected with this book more than I did any other, and I've read my fair share of spiritual books!

It's a very particle book and doesn't drag on like most books in this genre do.

I would recommend this book to anyone.

Read Happiness is the Truth by Mollie Player for the following reason: Mollie Player writes in a conversation style, as if you are face-to-face with her, and she delves into some wonderful reminders about how our universe functions.

I met Mollie because I am also an author and we have become fans of each others' work. Mollie is right on the money here as she explains and reveals that we are the architects of our own experiences. And who wrote the "law" that we must look upon any life experience as "bad" or a well-spring of misery? (The answer, of course, is that there is no such "law", only a belief system we have bought into that we no longer need to)

Certainly, there are plenty of experiences that are undesirable. But to focus upon them as "bad" and causing misery is our choice. This is not a concept which points a finger of blame towards us when we feel bad; we are not to think of our freedom to choose happiness as one where we should chastise ourselves for "wanting" bad experiences. Instead, this truth reveals to us the keys to escaping our self-made prison from this point forward!

And this viewpoint is one which Mollie delves into so well, so lovingly, and with so much empathy, that you will feel empowered and uplifted. I highly recommend Happiness is the Truth. And I also recommend it as a companion to my recent book (and vice-versa). Mollie is a wonderful contributor to the ongoing awakening to our wonderful, inherent power to create life experiences of our own choosing.

This book is written in a conversational tone in a letter to the reader. The author states that the meaning/purpose of her life is to be happy. She presents an interesting perspective on life, whether you agree with her or not. Her goal is to make the reader think -- and she accomplishes this. This is a good book to read to get you thinking about the purpose of your life.
