If you want a happy self help book that gives you a quick list of directions on the road to happiness, look elsewhere. If you want to take a slower path and look at the more complex issues that make up the mosaic of what happiness is, then this is the book. I was going to give a copy to a friend and decided not to because of their general point of view. The meaning behind the book would have been lost and it would have been put on a shelf or in a landfill. Not for all. Great for some.
