This is one of those books I wish I could give more than five stars! I was truly so excited to pop on here and leave this review, because I know that someone out there right now needs this book to come into their life, just like I needed it in mine! I learned so much about myself, I found myself shaking my head, saying yes, yes, yes as I read about my personality, pretty much to a T in the Ether Element. I am a Reiki master and I’m always looking for ways to feed my soul and learn how to holistically nourish myself both emotionally and physically and this book helped me do just that. I had never even heard of the Element Ether, and I couldn’t believe my eye when I read the foods that are best for me are warm, oily foods, because I’ve been trying to really listen to what my body wants lately, and low and behold those are things I’ve been craving naturally. No wonder, it’s my personality type! I was so excited reading this I found myself enthusiastically reading parts of the book out loud to my husband! Lol Truly well written, engaging read that will amaze you and provide a wealth of knowledge that can only benefit your life! Mmm! Love it! I know you will too.

Ever come across a multi-personality based book? A book tailored to make you get the best from what it has to say. This is a book like that that gives you all the best tool for happiness. True happiness is priceless and any book that helps you to find it is truly indispensable. "The Five Paths to Happiness: The Keys to Living a Happy Life According to Your Personality" did a good job at this. It assists people in obtaining that joy of life in very vivid simple steps. One of the things I gained at the end of the book was how to truly define my happiness and what causes it. I personally discovered that I had defined very unrealistic targets and I don't even know when I achieve it. The happiness hacks in this book really impacted me and I recommend it for every reader. It's the cure for depression and you can do without it. It is for everybody because the writer made sure to consider personality types considering all the important factors, leaving no stone unturned.

This book was an absolutely fascinating look at different personality types and what makes them happy. I love that the author addresses this issue by using a variety of different disciplines including religion, psychology, and science. While I’m not a believer in the different religions he referenced in the book, it’s fascinating (and quite true) how their historical interpretation impacts different types of people. After reading, I found out that I am an air type and that communication is very important to me. I am happiest being able to share my thoughts and opinions with people. I also learned that my moods are frequently impacted by scent and that I enjoy being outside to walk and enjoy my environment – which are both totally true. I found it absolutely amazing that air types are often prone to nervousness and stress (YES!) and related illnesses like IBS, arthritis, and dry skin. For my diet, it says I should avoid yeast (YES!), cold salads, and coffee (YIKES). Hot teas like chamomile and ginger are best as are foods like soups and oats. There was so much more information about my personality type and what makes me happy that I couldn’t possibly cover it all. The book addresses the paths that each personality type can take to maintain happiness including things like diet, job, thoughts, priorities, etc. If you’re in search of an eye-opening look at what really makes you happy, I highly recommend you read this book.

Reviewed by Tracy Slowiak for Readers' Favorite In an interesting new read of inspirational non-fiction by author Javier Ramon Brito, The Five Paths to Happiness: The Keys to Living a Happy Life According to Your Personality is a book that many will find very useful. Utilizing the idea that it's easier for an individual to find happiness if they follow the path that bests suits their personality, the author does a good job at laying out information for all, whether they fit into the category of ether, air, fire, water or air type of personality, and gives guidance on how that individual should best seek contentment and happiness in their own lives. The author also provides a sound argument that following the constant "rat race" of today's society will certainly not lead an individual to happiness, and gives information on how to go about finding the true essence of happiness in life. I thought that The Five Paths to Happiness: The Keys to Living a Happy Life According to Your Personality had a creative way of approaching assisting people with finding happiness in their own lives. I have never read a book that suggests looking for happiness through the lens of a person's constitutional type, but this book does so with great effect. Any reader who is interested in finding happiness in their lives, or people who have a loved one struggling in this area, should definitely consider reading this book. I am pleased to recommend it, and look forward to reading more from author Javier Ramon Brito in the future.
