Publisher's Summary

This biting satire won Canadian author Will Ferguson the prestigious Canadian Authors Association Award for Fiction as well as a Leacock Medal for Humour. Lowly editor Edwin de Valu's life moves at a pretty humdrum pace, until he discovers the manuscript for Tupak Soiree's book on his desk. This self-help tome is different - it actually works. And soon the world turns upside down thanks to the advice of this mysterious guru.

Edwin "De Valu" not DE-Value.

Narrator couldn't pronounce the main character's name properly. Other than that, an amazing book. Will Ferguson is a very talented writer.

A Different Kind of Will Ferguson revealed!!!

What did you love best about Happiness?

I had already read the book when I saw this on audible. What a fabulous book.. It was so well read and performed! totally worth it.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

This is a very funny, tongue in cheek book. It really does make you wonder what would happen if someone wrote the ultimate self help book and it worked... you've gotta listen to this one.
