“This book made me happy in the first five pages.” —AJ Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically: One Man's Humble Quest to Follow the Bible as Literally as Possible Award-winning author Gretchen Rubin is back with a bang, with The Happiness Project. The author of the bestselling 40 Ways to Look at Winston Churchill has produced a work that is “a cross between the Dalai Lama’s The Art of Happiness and Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love.” (Sonya Lyubomirsky, author of The How of Happiness: A Scientific Approach to Getting the Life You Want) In the vein of Julie and Julia, The Happiness Project describes one person’s year-long attempt to discover what leads to true contentment. Drawing at once on cutting-edge science, classical philosophy, and real-world applicability, Rubin has written an engaging, eminently relatable chronicle of transformation.

His life crisis has passed, and I ...
I'm most of the way through this book and will probably finish it. I've enjoyed parts but there's a lot of fluff in between the enjoyable bits. Also Rubin has used the word q***r twice already. This book was written in 2009. Use a different word (strange works nicely). There's so much overlap be...
Did not finish this one, and I feel kinda bad about that. I really gave it the best chance I could. I was excited when I started reading it, but I had serious trouble relating to or liking the author. So I let it expire on my library download without really pushing myself to make it to the end. Mayb...
