    1. A book written with sincerity. I read a lot of self helped books and this one particularly contains all the important pieces of advice to help readers live a happy life. A well-researched and highly recommended read if you goal is to live with joy.

    2. It is a self-help book for those who are in need for self-search, letting go and seeking for a purpose (happiness). It is anchored on 12 core propositions and how to go beyond happiness. Knowing the what, why and how of happiness help to understand the essence of happiness and the purpose of joy in life. Simple to read and recommend for those who require step-by-step guide for seeking purpose in life and happiness.

    3. I was honestly expecting a bit more from this book. Throughout it I had the feeling we were just scratching the surface and not getting deep enough. Only at the end I was able to overcome those expectations and realize that this book actually provides a very good path to structure your journey to joy. But you have to fill in the blanks yourself, and that's not trivial work.

    4. I have never read a book before that has made me so angry. I couldn't finish the whole thing because of the arrogance of the author. I certainly didn't get anywhere near even basic happiness never mind trying to attain joy. I'm getting angry again just writing this review.
