The Guidebook to Happiness does exactly what it claims to by providing practical, no-nonsence solutions for enhancing your happiness and well-being. The author is both humourous and candid at the same time as being well researched and knowledgable, which makes it an amusing and interesting read. I found the section on values based decision making particularly helpful in ensuring personal congruency and it’s the kind of book that I will keep re-visiting when I’m in need of a little inspiration or getting back ‘on track’. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to pro-actively influence their levels of happiness, well-being and success, rather than leaving these things to chance (to quote the author). Congratulations Carl Massy on a great first book!
