Nozik¿s little how-to-be-happy book is a field manual for pilgrims on a quest for the grail of happiness. Happy himself, Nozik has organized his accumulated wisdoms into a step by step map for how to get to the Emerald City. For a literary Strawman we have Glumbunny, who over the course of the book misunderstands every principle of happiness, but Glumbunny and glum readers are slowly helped onto a more positive path to happiness by means of patient explanation, assigned homework and various mental exercises. All this in a succinct package of new age insights and popular, self-help psychology. The book is an easy read, as hopeful as a John Denver song, non-judgmental of human foibles, and packed with practical tips. Recommended for the glum, especially those who derive benefit from self-help exercises.
My girlfriend gave me a copy and said, 'Here you need this!' I have been putting Dr. Nozik's formula to work for about 5 weeks now have noticed a HUGE difference in how I can relate to some of my siblings. And, since this is Christmas, I can use all the help I can get!
Dr. Nozik has created a winning formula for happiness, including his own! He writes in a clear fashion about strategies that all of us can use to make our lives more fulfilling. At last, something I can recommend to my patients!
HAPPY 4 LIFE: Here's How to Do It by Bob Nozik Review of Happy 4 Life: Here's How to Do It Review by: Frank J. Weinstock, MD Happiness is an elusive concept that most people cannot describe. Many people verbalize that they are happy, but really are not. Happiness is more than making money, which may help you to achieve goals; more often the seeking of and the making of money is a source of unhappiness. In order to be happy, you must analyze your current condition honestly. Then you begin to develop a plan to achieve happiness. This book will show you how to ¿establish¿ a happiness quotient from where it will then guide you to the achievement of happiness. Happiness should be a way of life, independent of financial and materialistic gains. Everyone should be happy- the author is doing a ¿public service¿ in spreading his wisdom and experience. He has been involved in teaching happiness for several years and now has agreed to share his ideas and concepts with the rest of us. I highly recommend this book for EVERYONE. If you think you are happy, this will help you to be happier. If you are not happy, this book will help you see it.
