What defines happiness for you?

Well, follow Jody B. Miller as she shares what she believes happiness should be in The BIG Little Book of Happiness.

One of the notable aspects of the book is its clear and accessible language. The author conveys her ideas in a simple and well-structured manner, making it easy for readers of all backgrounds to understand and engage with the content. The writing style allows for effortless reading and participation.

To support the concepts discussed in the book, the author references research findings from reputable sources such as the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, the Journal of Happiness Studies, and the Journal of Emotions. This inclusion of research not only adds credibility to the author’s work but also helps readers to see the scientific basis behind the ideas presented. It demonstrates that the author is not merely presenting her opinions but drawing from a wealth of knowledge in happiness studies.

The author incorporates engaging stories in each chapter. These stories cultivate a sense of connection and resonance with the readers. Skilfully written with smooth transitions, these stories add depth and relatability to the book, allowing readers to see real-life examples of how the principles of happiness can be applied.

The best part of the book is the practical exercises provided after each chapter. These exercises ensure readers can actively apply the concepts they have learned to their lives. By encouraging readers to take action, the book empowers them to move beyond theory and make meaningful changes to pursue happiness. Additionally, including pictures throughout the book adds a visual element, providing a tangible representation of the ideas being conveyed.

The book’s paragraphs are concise and well-structured, allowing for easy readability. The conversational writing style employed by the author creates a warm and friendly tone, making readers feel as though they are having a conversation with a supportive mentor. This personal touch adds a sense of authenticity to the content. It fosters a deeper connection between the author and the readers.

There’s a minor issue I noticed in the book cover, though. How the title is presented might make someone misread it as “The BIG happiness little book of.” However, this minor design issue does not negatively affect my opinion of the book.

The BIG Little Book of Happiness is highly recommended to individuals of all ages, particularly those in their twenties who may be experiencing significant pressure to achieve success and happiness. The book is exceptionally edited. It provides valuable guidance for readers on their journey toward happiness. Regardless of the minor issue, I rate it a five out of five. – Sam Ibeh
