Many books have been written on the subject of happiness but this blissful gem shines out in a league of it’s own. It is an easy to read, hugely inspiring compilation of the latest research in and around the burgeoning field of Positive Psychology.

Every page contains either an uplifting case study or a practical exercise geared towards allowing the reader to discover how they can become unreasonably happy. I read the entire book in one sitting, all the while thinking, “They should teach this stuff in schools!”

The ideas may not be entirely new to some readers but the way they are presented, backed up with scientific research, makes it an essential and highly accessible text for anybody who wants to make a positive difference in their own lives or in the lives of others.
