This book is very inspirational, has great advice, and humor as well.
The way the book is organized and the sub topics for each chapter keep your interest and truly make you think about the comments and advice and how these suggestions take a little effort but are definitely worth trying.
The ending of each chapter had mental "workouts" to help you get on track and gave you guidance for trying each idea....a very creative idea.
The entire book was uplifting, and made you feel good after completing a chapter. You definitely won't be a pessimist after reading this book.
This book is not time consuming and is without a doubt one that makes you realize that changing your life is worth the happiness you will feel in the long run.
I definitely enjoyed trying the mental workouts….I need to do more and not miss a day. In my opinion, your brain is pliable no matter how old you are, and this book isn't only for the youngsters. Give it a try....you will be happy you did....and you may be happier than you ever thought you could be. I am working on it.
Thanks for the copy of your wonderful book, Bryan.
