Editorial Reviews

Jeff Carter
“The marvel of reading Max Strom's book is to be convinced one can follow his three life imperatives to take back control of our lives and the private reality that is the deepest self. It is an astonishing work propelling the reader towards a new and more meaningful experience of living.”
Travis Southwick
“Comprehensive, focused and immediately useful, There is no App for Happiness is an articulate and highly readable synthesis of unique thinking and a framework through which to apply it to everyday life. This should be recommended reading for all leaders and development professionals.”
John W. McBurney
“Direct, practical and accessible. Profound, transcendent and illuminating. Max Strom has authored an important guide to living a more authentic and meaningful 21st century life.”
Russ Nash
“In a world where there appears to be an app for everything and many people have more virtual friends than real ones, Max has written a powerful and important book. Highly informative, thought-provoking, empowering and action oriented...a book that can help transform lives and create deep personal connections.”

    In "There is No App For Happiness", Max is right on point. Those of us that are interested in finding balance in today's
    fast paced world will find easy to understand and applicable "tips" for success.
    I also highly recommend Max's book, "A Life Worth Breathing".
    Max is a teacher who truly cares about people, and his dedication to the health and well being of humanity is inspiring.
