possibly the worst book I've ever read

While I appreciate the optimistic idea, the book is painfully repetitive, droning on the same point. Written as if for very young children, but not interesting enough for even their attention. I felt very annoyed after the read.

Good info on how to be more positive

STORY - (self help) The author of this book uses a cute, short story about two dogs who live in an animal shelter to make his point. One dog has a negative attitude (Matt) and the other has a positive attitude (Bubba). Throughout the story Bubba teaches Matt simple steps how to be happier and more positive in daily life. There are many good lessons in the book, but the bottom line is that you need to continuously work at finding the good side of things and being thankful for them. The rewards are better health, less stress, being happier, attracting more friends, etc., etc. I don't consider myself a negative person, but I still think I will benefit from having heard this little story.

PERFORMANCE - The author reads his own work, but I would have preferred a professional narrator. He does an okay job, though.

OVERALL - Recommended for everyone. It's only 1 1/2 hours long and is a pleasant, easy listen. Audible categorizes it as a business/professional book, and I can definitely see how some of the advice would help in a business or team setting as well as for individuals.
