    A life changing book!

    While it sounds a little over the top, I truly believe this is a life-changing book -- and I don't say that lightly. Even as an avid reader, I've had perhaps only five books impact me so strongly. Dave Mitchell addresses - with humor, humility and utter sincerity - the struggle that we all have as we strive to find ever-elusive happiness. This is not some stereotypical self-help book that will leave you with more questions than answers once you finally complete a War-and-Peace-esque epic. Mr. Mitchell has written a short, hilarious, thoroughly enjoyable, poignant book that gives you a few simple steps to help you find happiness, joy and contentment in your life. I promise you that after reading it once you'll want to read it again and share it with every single person who is dear to you and important in your life. It's that good.

    A Must Read!

    Dave Mitchell's first, but hopefully not last, book contains those simple nuggets of wisdom that we all acknowledge to be true, yet rarely act upon! Communicated with wit and intelligence, Dave provides insight into how and why we perceive our reality so very uniquely. He helps the reader to recognize that once your own internal insecurities are 'shown the door', there is greater room for the expansion of contentment and happiness. This time, we will act!

    Funny and so true!

    Wow...I liked this a bunch. Very funny and dead on. We all struggle to be happy and this book captures that angst remarkably. Highly recommended.

    Now I get it!

    The struggle to find happiness and balance in life is something that everyone can relate to and a theme that has been addressed in so many books....believe me because I think I've read them all. Not until I read this book was I able to examine some of the hindrances to finding happiness in my own life. All of this happened while being taken on a hilarious journey through Mr. Mitchell life and mind. He writes with clarity, humor and itelligence without implying that he has all of the answers or that there is an answer to finding happiness. The day after I finished the book I was able to apply some of the concepts or at least recognize them. Chapter 8, 'Wild Monkeys in Duncan, Oklahoma' really hit home. His message: SMILE. No, it's not some new-agey acronym for self actualization. It is exactly what it says. Smile and you will reap the rewards. Dave Mitchell made a believer out of me and I'm sure will do the same for you

    This is a great read!

    Hilarious and insightful¿. Not always two words that you find together, however Dave Mitchell somehow blends the perfect mix of introspection and comedy together in his book. His down-to-earth story-telling will keep you intrigued about the lessons from his own life and challenge you to look at your¿s from a different perspective This book is a great read and will have you laughing out loud!
