Perfect toolset for leading a happy life.
This book was Incredible! Please write another book!
Felt repetitive and redundant. Couldn't help but think the whole time that an article or listicle on the subject would have sufficed. Many of the items the author brings up are described as powerful, revolutionary, or shocking. However, they all seemed pretty feasible to me. Had he just told me the 7 principles without the onslaught of obvious supporting evidence, I would have believed him just the same.
I really wanted to like and enjoy this book. Alas. it suffers from the same ailment that so many business books suffer from; turning what should be a short book (100 pages max) into a 200+ page dilution.
Enough with the overused mention of the saber tooth tiger, Roger Banister, Richard Branson, the countless name drops and the studies attached to them. Can an author be a little bit more "authentic" (buzzword that's all the rage now), and present to us his actual thoughts on his subject matter.
Damn it I really wanted to like this one, but the irritation of perpetual namedrop was overwhelming and I had to stop listening.
The author could have just expounded on the three elements of happiness that he brought up at the beginning of the book, and he would have been on point. Happiness = Pleasure + Engagement + Meaning. I was on the short side of that equation listening to that book unfortunately.
