    The kind of book you can expect from an American, pragmatist and efficiency-oriented approach to happiness. Plus, all the hateful and enviable successes of a person who really takes her job (the job of being happier) very seriously. Overfilled with "studies suggest that..." sentences, but not devoid of good quotes and references.

    Actually helps me to rethink how happy am I?

    Besides, it also provided some very insightful and useful tips that people could try.
    Even if you're not going to start a happiness project yourself, It's a good read.

    I tend to classify books by where I read them. The Happiness Project is a book I read when I commute. Here is my favourite quote- Children laugh about 400 times a day, how about you?

    讓我有了不少啟發,也嘗試展開我的快樂生活提案。書中有很多方案,作者都親自體驗可行性,雖然每個人都有所不同,但亦會有不少相同處,大家目的都是快樂,自我成長。
    目標能否達成不是最重要,而是有沒有決心去堅持。

    Everyone seeks for happiness. It'a a reading I would not recommend.
    Either watch Snow White singing at birds in the morning or ask yourself directly what makes you happy.
    But if you find it in a hostel for New Year's Eve and you are heading to the beach, that's a funny company to your own resolutions.

    Questo libro è stata una lettura varia; mi ha indispettito in alcuni punti, interessato in altri e, nella maggior parte dei casi, mi è rimasta impressa la sensazione di una esposizione vera, ovvero quel che ne esce è una personalità a tutto tondo, con vizi, virtù, spinta dalla voglia di migliorare se stessa-
    Non inizierò un personale "progetto felicità", per vari motivi, ma ho trattenuto alcune cose importanti che vengono bene espresse dal libro.
