This extraordinary book is a joy to read. But more important, its exercises and message make it an effective tool for increasing one's happiness as well as that of others with whom one comes into contact. 'Creating Extraordinary Joy' presents a well-organized, step-by-step process for increasing the joy in one's life. Lessons are accompanied by exercises and real-life vignettes. Chris Alexander is the son of a white Rhodesian farmer and he weaves tales of his adventures growing up throughout the book. The writing is very accessible. Mr. Alexander's writing has a piquant way of connecting with the reader. This is a very personal book -- it is almost eerie how personally it engaged me. Several themes permeate the book. They include: understanding 'synergy,' which simply means making connections that energize and inspire us to exceptional achievement and pleasure; clearing out unproductive thoughts; recognizing that we have the power to make choices and taking control of that power; and setting and achieving goals. One only occasionally comes across that rare gem - a book with the power to change one's life. This book is one of those gems. After having read it and completed many of its exercises, I can truthfully say that my life has changed for the better. Highly recommended.
