    I like the format of these books. They are not onerous to read and contain lots of straightforward tips written in a plain English way. No airy fairy jargon or mumbo jumbo! Easy to carry around too. A book to keep and read when you feel the need. There seem to be 4 of these in a series. There is one on how to be calm (also reviewed), one on confidence (yet to read) and apart from the happy one, also one on how to sleep (which I have no plans to read)

    Good book but I thought it would be more easy, many things in the book really didn't make sense. It has good strategies to help you get out from you troubles.

    النصائح المذكورة في الكتاب مفيدة جداً لمن هو قادر على تطبيقها، لكنني أجد التطبيق صعب بعض الشيء لكثرة الحاجة إلى الكتابة وفي دفتر منفصل.

    Who doesn't want to be happy? I read my fair share of "self-help books", partly because of my fascination with self development and productivity and partly because of my background in psychology and an interest in how pop-psych does stuff. This book, with it's sunny cover, lighthearted title, and just 160 pages, seemed a perfect book in between more serious reading. I hoped it would come with easy tips and practices on how to cultivate the happy things in your life.I was wrong. This book is not about making yourself happy, this book is about depression and one of the common therapies given to people with depression: Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). I was caught of guard by this, because depression is not just "not happy". It is a, often debilitating, disorder, which covers way more than just "a low mood". Also, the book states a few times that everyone can beat depression. How nice that may sound, this is simply just not true. It perpetuates a myth that if you just work hard enough, you won't be depressed anymore (which is a kind of victimblaming, and this kind of thinking is quite prevalent in Western society). Often, depression, especially the chronic kind (dysthymia, in the new DSM more clearly called persistent depressive disorder), can be managed by therapy and/or medication, but not "cured". Also, if you had one major depressive episode. Chances are, you'll have one again. The wikipedia article on depression can tell you moreHowever, of CBT* this book gives quite a good overview. It talks about how thoughts are not the truth, how you can recignize negative thoughts patterns and about how you can change those those thoughts. It mentions mindfulness and living in the moment, which can be a great help with mood disorders. It talks a lot about making time for yourself and actually planning those nice things (and one of their main examples of "something nice" is having a cup of coffee, and that I can get on board on). And about writing in your diary, really analysing when you felt what and what thoughts acompanied the feeling. This stuff can be helpful for everyone, also people who are not depressed.I still think this book would've been nicer if it wasn't depression-focused, but it does give actual good advice in a nice, short, easy to read, format. And it gives you a good starting point for getting more into DIY CBT.*The perv in me always reads this as "Cock and Ball Torture"; a common acronym in kink-minded communities.This post first appeared on Reading the Thing.

    There is so much in this that I highlighted that I could quote the entire book! A lot of this was information that I already have heard or knew but it is put in a different way. The entire cognitive behavioral therapy and negative automatic thoughts were my favorite.Firstly, six years ago I suddenly realized that I didn’t have a positive thought in my skull! It was wearing me down. As I’m sure you can imagine. This goes into explain that negative thoughts, or what they call NAT’s are normal and everyone has them. The problem though is that some people have them ALL the time. See my sentence above. It took me a long time to learn how to deal with these thoughts. If I could have gone back in time I would just give myself this book!Not only does it explain the NAT’s quite well but how to get rid of them! You know that annoying thought you keep going back to in times where you feel like you’re not really thinking about anything? Then WHAM it sinks into your skull and then you’re in a bad mood because you start spiraling! There’s an entire chapter just for how to, not only recognize those thoughts but how to make them go away!Now, I’ve been working on that particular thing for about six years but the thoughts still pip in every once in a while. I do have a problem with spiraling once those thoughts hit though. This talks about how to negate that spiral and how to change your normal negative thinking into positive thinking.There are also golden rules. Mostly things that I’ve heard before like how to never use the words “always and never” and how you can set yourself up for failure by not changing your thinking.I do read a lot of self-help books for some reason. I think they are fun. I love to grow. Some I walk away knowing I didn’t take anything away but I didn’t lose anything but time. In this one, however, I am keeping it on my Kindle and may wind up getting it in paperback just so I have it handy. It’s good to have positive reinforcement to help ourselves with and to remind us that we are not as horrible as our inner thoughts say we are!In short: Mired by your thoughts? Need a pick me up? This book is totally for you!Received from publisher for an honest review.4.5/5

    Life's little cruelties sometimes makes me bitter and sarcastic, so when I saw the title of this book I, of course, laughed. My inner-cynic thought it was a huge joke. How can a book make anyone happy? Well, inner-cynic, lots of books have made us happy in the past, though most of them were fiction. Still, because I do have a soft spot for self-improvement, I wanted to give it a fair shake. If it was too hokey after the first twenty-five pages (about 1/6th of the book,) I could always decide not to finish reading it. The thing is, it wasn't hokey. It had some moments that made me snort, but for the most part the authors strategies were sound. You're not going to get happy just from reading this book. The authors tell you right up front you're going to have to work at it. There is no magic wand, or some spell you can utter while waving your hands to make all the unhappiness go away. You have to do the work. You have to want to make the changes. And I do.This is a book I will go back to more than once. There are exercises in each chapter, some of which include mind-mapping and journaling as you assess your emotional responses and general mood. I expected them to be silly, but they weren't. Taking time out to look at your life, your daily activities, the pleasure (or displeasure,) they bring you. Learning to incorporate things into your day that bring you pleasure. They talked about strategies for changing the way we react to situations by changing the way we think. Some of the examples they provided really hit home, reminding me of responses I'd had to similar situations. Because the thing is, once you've started a pattern of negative thought, it's really hard to break, but it can be broken.It's worth it to me to work on improving the quality of my life, so if you're feeling unhappy I definitely recommend giving this book a try.

    Actually, this book was kinda cute.On another note, I realized the main reason I keep reading these books (except the fact that I requested them on NetGalley, so I kind of have to anyway) is the writing style. I've never thought I would say this for a nonfiction book, but the writing just flows and I end up finishing the book. Which is funny, because that's not how a self-help book is supposed to work, but it does. Wow.About the content, I'm not too sure what I'm thinking about it. At first, I thought it had nothing that I haven't read about online or on another book. Sure, that might be because I'm a little obsessed with the subject and I've spent a hell of a time reading on it, so it might actually be useful for someone who hasn't done the same, but it didn't work for me. It is nice, but it could be way better.Overall, it was a 3.5/5 read.

    I think "This Book Will Make You Happy", is a very valueble masterpiece. It talks about how happiness lies internally, not externally, and how to produce happiness by using your mind. I used to be a very quiet, shy and lonely person, but after I met this book, it transformed me into my favorite version of myself. Also, it is one of those books, that no matter how many times you read, you will notice that you stil left some of the knowledge inside the book. Producing happiness on my own is the best tool I have, because I can be happy, anywhere and anytime, no matter what the situation is. I can only recomend to you read it, but I cannot force you read it (if I can, you would be reading it the hundreth time, by now.

    I love these Books! I read the Calm one first & I started, stopped & started this one the same way. But only because I was distracted by other Books!Again, as with the Calm one, I really enjoyed the chapter structures, the practical advice & the relatable language used to impart all of the information. Some of which we all know damn well-Yet ignore completely when we're feeling unhappy. Some of which you can really relate to & makes you think; 'That actually makes so much sense!'I have the Confident one as well-So I'll read that next & I'll get the Mindfulness, Beautiful & Sleep ones just as & when I come across them.
