    Abraham Lincoln is quoted as saying "Most of us are just about as happy as we make up our minds to be." Although easy to say, making up your mind to be happy (joyful) can be hard to do. For those not even aware that this is a conscious choice, Altman's book can be a profound change in life for the good. For those who already know it's possible, but are seeking help in making it happen, this book is a straight-forward and encouraging path.

    Free of psycho-babble and religious proselytizing, the book follows a time proven, three-step cycle for making ideas actionable: A point is explained, a case study provides a clear example, and an exercise is described that can help you to immediately turn your new understanding into a positive step toward a more joyful life.

    More than just the opinion of its psychotherapist author, this book is well supported with reference to other books and studies, making it both a single volume that brings it all together and a great starting point for more rigorous study.
