Fascinating memoir with helpful "Get to" advice
Where does Get to Be Happy: Stories and Secrets to Loving the Sh*t Out Of Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
I love self-help books focussed on a combination of mindfulness and practicality. My favorites up to now have been The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People (Covey), Why Buddhism is True (Wright), and the Seven Spiritual Laws of Success (Chopra). In Get to Be Happy, Larkins has approached these same topics from a fresh, personal perspective. The book is more a memoir than a self-help book, and therein lies its fabulous and unique contribution. Larkins shares both his greatest triumphs and is saddest tragedies with the reader, and after each episode explains to the reader how applying his "Get to" attitude carried him through. I highly recommend the audio version because Larkins' genuine passion is even more apparent then in the written version - at times the listener can hear the author well up in tears, other times his joyful and passionate tone is intoxicating.

“Get to” read this book!
I really enjoyed listening to this book for a bunch of reasons. Mr. Larkins is a great storyteller - entertaining, honest, and raw. Time flew by listening to this audiobook which helps my long commute.
Mr. Larkins does a superb job of narrating his own book. Hearing the words come from the source ensures that you’re getting all the right emphasis in all the right places. Literally hearing the enthusiasm and zest for life that comes across in his narration goes right to the heart!
Most importantly though are the lessons to learn - Mr. Larkins’ “Get To” principle - really sticks with you right away and I’ve already started applying it to my daily life, many times throughout the day.
