    The Road to Happiness

    We all want to be happy, but too often we set up obstacles without even being aware. We worry too much, we panic, we feel jealous, anxious and angry. These feelings and the endless unwanted thoughts that come with them hang over us like a dark cloud and make us miserable.
    In Your Mind: An Owner's Manual for a Better Life, the authors identify these behaviors and explain where they come from, and more importantly, how we can change them to live more fulfilled lives. This book is extremely well-organized, easy to read, and the authors inject just the right dose of humor to make their points. Each chapter or Truth begins with a quote from the likes of Ralph Waldo Emerson, Roseanne Barr, or Don Henley of the Eagles, and ends with simple activities that are designed to help you learn how to pinpoint the behaviors you want to change. There's space to write on the pages, or you can write on a separate sheet of paper and pass the book along to your mother-in-law or your husband to help them become more fulfilled too. The Truths that the authors identify are really guidelines to achieve positive change and happiness. For instance, Truth #1 is "Emotions are not mysterious visitors; they can be identified and understood." The authors explain in simple terms where feelings like guilt, panic, anger and anxiety come from and they help us learn to identify them in the moment and to ultimately avoid letting them take over our lives. One of the exercises invokes the "Opposite George" approach from the TV show "Seinfeld." When George realizes that every decision he ever made was wrong, he decides to act opposite to his impulses. In the same way, we have to learn to check our tired old impulses at the door, think, and find new ways to interact with the world--ways that result in increased personal satisfaction and a greater quality of life.
    Your Mind: An Owner's Manual is chock full of easily accessible, practical information that you can begin integrating into your life immediately.
    Reading this book is just like having a therapist, but way cheaper.
