“This is a different book from the norm which explains about pleasure and purpose in our everyday life and that by changing your behaviour can improve the happiness in your life. By understanding human behaviour why your actions, what motivates you and the feed back you get can affect your actions . Once you find out what makes you happy you have to keep doing it for self esteem, self confidence , its about changes and the way you think. You really have to experience the changes.” Reader review, Goodreads.
“I seem to be doing everything suggested in the book, shame it took me 45 years to work it out. Save time and read this book!” Reader review, Goodreads.
