Overview

Winner of the 2009 Silver Nautilus Award representing “Better Books for a Better World”

The message of this book is very simple: Right now, you can be happier!

More things wont do it. Even a great relationship may not save you. In Choosing Happiness the focus is on the only place where real change can happen: in how you see yourself and relate to other people. The book uses practical guidance and warm, realistic inspiration to show clearly that while you can't always choose what happens in your life, you can choose your responses, values and behaviors ? and the results are life changing.

Choosing Happiness offers skills and insights across all areas, from your most intimate relationships to your friendships, extended family, work, and community. Psychologically positive and astute, it also looks at the big spiritual questions that let you value your life rather than just spending it. Small changes bring big results. Beautifully packaged, with a flexibind spine and a red ribbon placeholder, this book is like the wise, kind friend you can't wait to return to again and again.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"In an era of inauthenticity Dowrick is a godsend. Her gift is the ability to write in a manner that genuinely enriches and changes lives. Choosing Happiness is a glorious book - both in intent and in scope. In many ways it is the only book you need ever buy on happiness. Not only is it a wise and enjoyable read it is also an invaluable reference book to return to again and again".
—Nigel Marsh, author of Fat, Forty and Fired

“You’ll be glad this book is in your knapsack as you explore the many hills and valleys of the happiness trail.”
BookPage

“Part self-affirmation series, part cognitive psychology and part meditation on the power of generosity, this is a thoughtful and sincere guide for those seeking to find happiness within.”
Publishers Weekly

“Stephanie Dowrick makes the hard questions simple. She makes the impossible real and possible. Her wisdom is contagious. If anyone can cause a happiness revolution, she can.”
—Paul Wilson, author of the bestselling Little Book of Calm
