Excellent Proposition, Uninspiring Execution
By: William Gunawan

Gretchen Rubin has an exciting proposition: can we be really be happy or at least happier, if we really want to? "The Happiness Project" really has some excellent tips and ideas. Packaged in a smart and easy to read  structure (each chapter is for a month's work and each week focuses on a different element of that topic), it encourage you to take a few ideas away that will work in your life.

I had to smirk a bit when I began reading the... See More

book because nearly immediately she reveal one of my secrets of adulthood. When you begin a big project, shut your mouth off. Others will probably make remarks that diminish your enthusiasm at the point when your feelings are most tender. Best to wait until you are up to your armpits or possibly better yet, never - just let others see the results.

From the on, Rubin embarks on her quest to find happiness using the materials she already possesses; a strong desire for a better life, hearty bond of family relationships, an uncoincidentally career as a professional writer and researcher, and a sense of what has not worked in the past. She creates a few resolutions per month, tracks her progress on a simple chart using those gold stars we remember from grade school, and most importantly, journals her difficulties and triumphs as she struggles to integrate each resolution into her life on a permanent basis. It is an ambitious proposition with a great intention. While I won't ever imagine myself to do the same, i can't say the same about the other. It is quite tempting and it has the material and potential for five star material.

There is one single caveat though and significant one at that. Where she falls short is relying too much on blog comments. Entire pages are full of comments by her blog readers. Tedious. Repetitive and uninspiring at best. Couple that with the repetition about how wonderful her life and family are, and the content becomes rather limited and ultimately unpersuasive.

Toss it with the understanding that she has been able to pursue her life's dreams without any restrictions or drawbacks (family, money, professional risk) and it's hard to see her advice as relevant to the "average" person's life. But I would still give it a recommendation. It might not be for everyone, but i believe that the book can be very valuable for those who have a lot of free time to chase their happiness in life. Or, to be more precise, give it a try, read the first five months and see what you think. If you hit summer and wonder if it gets any better, stop reading. (It doesn't.) If you like it through August, you're going to like the entire thing. And skip her offers for daily quotes and daily blog entries -- how many ways can she say the same thing?

Happiness I Found
By: Janeth A

The very first time I read "The Happiness Project" book, I was startled by the very small font it has inside this book. This has caused me had no interest to continued read the book and decided to read another books of mine until the day when I was out of the book to read. I finally started to re-look at this book and continued to read what's left.

I felt really grateful to have had read this book. Why? because, this book has really opened my mind to realize how to seek happiness in a good and healthy way. And succeeded made me feel totally and utterly alive. 

Gretchen Rubin really did a great job and decision to spread this book and made me read this inspirational book. I can't wait to see you to read this book as well and share your opinion here!

Happiness!
By: Natasha Setyasty Primaditta

I really like this book. Inside, Rubin share her year long project regarding things that she wanted to improve in her life to become happier. Every month she tackles one issue that she belief would make her and people she loves even happier. The thing that I like were the researches that she done and her objectives make this book not just a simple housewife diary, but a guidebook for the many ways of happiness.

Do You Need Help to Find Happines?
By: Ernestine Oktaviana Yuniswara

Gretchen Rubin wrote this book after she had some kind of "aha moment" when she finally found out what she really wanted in life. Ish. Which is to be happy. She pour out her 12 months journey of extracting happines throughout everyday events. You could try some of her ideas to brighten your days like start exercising, making new friends, sing in the morning, etc which probably is not something new for us to do. Her ideas for something to try every month seemed unextraordinary but it probably will make a change (I haven't really try some of them, other things on the list are the usual things I have done in routine) but probably for you, this book really could be providing...

help to find your happines.

So, if you are trying to find out something to do for a change that, maybe, will make you a little bit happier than before, you may want to grab this book.
