Publisher's Summary

Every now and then a self-help book comes along that questions the very nature of happiness, shakes the very foundation of all the things you hold dear, and forces you to reconsider every assumption you've ever made. This isn't one of those books.
How to Do Everything and Be Happy is a book for ordinary people. With ordinary lives. It's for people who have been ambling along and wondering why they're not - well - just that little bit happier. It's a book for most people. It's a book for you.
Mumbo jumbo and jargon free, How to Do Everything and Be Happy is direct, practical, occasionally witty, and stuffed full of ways to make your life just that bit happier. If you've got a brain in your head, if you can pick up a pen, if you've got half an inkling about what makes you smile, How to Do Everything and Be Happy will show you how to fit those things into your life and, as a consequence, feel much, much happier.

short and simple but good advice

Is there anything you would change about this book?

no

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I thought it was brief but the end summarized the book well.

What does Peter Jones bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Im assuming he read it the way he intended it to be read when he wrote it. I prefer audible books that are read by the authors for that same reason.

Did How to Do Everything and Be Happy inspire you to do anything?

yes, it inspired me to take more action in achieving my personal goals and to live life to the fullest everyday, or at least as much as possible.

Any additional comments?

This book succeeded in addressing a somewhat serious topic with a sense of humor.

Just listening to it made me happy

Not only does the book contain simple but very effective ways to improve your life, the author/narrator makes it a joy to listen to. Feeling blue? Put in your headphones and listen for a bit and you'll be cheered right up. It hasn't taken long and I have been putting his suggestions into action and have made some truly positive and exciting changes in my life.

Simple. Sensible. Salubrious. Sharp.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book by the good Mr Peter Jones. I've read half a tonne of self help and personal development books, but Peter's approach is both a pleasant distillation of other good material, as well as a welcome divergence from the traditional, somewhat overly heavy, personal development tomes. With a great balance of science, sense, and practical guidance that is INCREDIBLY easy to implement, follow, and stick with - I would highly recommend this book to both newbies, and seasoned self-help readers alike. Expect a pleasant, funny, chatty, and useful journey that will help you make "those" changes you've wanted to make sometime to make yourself.... well.... happier!

What a great book!

A very accessible, practical guide to getting to most out of your life. It covers lots of ideas that I will be trying out over the next few months. However, the book offers these ideas without being in any way preachy or condescending, remembering that people are all different - and offering advice on how you can adapt the ideas to make them work for you.

It is read by the author who has a very friendly, warm and informal style - highly recommended

I really enjoyed it!
