One of the reasons happy people are special is that they have an unusual answer to the classic question: "Is the glass half full or half empty?" Their answer, which sets them apart from the rest of us, is that the glass is both half empty and half full. Rick Foster's How We Choose to Be Happy helped me realize just how easy it is to change my biochemistry.

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

What are the secrets of happiness? Which traits or habits do happy people share? This book, combining personal narratives with scientific research, reveals the nine choices that truly happy people make – and explains how such joy-producing principles as intention, accountability, appreciation and truthfulness can be applied in our daily lives to help us join their ranks.

Readers will meet happy people of various ages, backgrounds, and walks of life – from a corporate manager balancing career and family to a Holocaust survivor to a cafeteria worker struggling to make ends meet – and, using the self-assessment tools and practical suggestions in this book, will discover new ways to find genuine happiness for themselves.

LyP, September 29, 2010 (view all comments by LyP)
I am amazed! After reading only the first several chapters, I was able to practice the principles, and actually wound up happier! In one day! The simple concepts are easy to weave into daily decisions to help change old thinking patterns that kept me tending toward unhappiness. The stories are interesting and inspiring, even the ones about those who are not happy (and it's so easy to see why!). I _very_ highly recommend this book. The ideas are simple, and I think if I can benefit from it, anyone can! Buy several and give one to your grumpy friends!
