Happiness consists in activity. It is running steam, not a stagnant pool.

A happy book should also feel good to read.

A happy book should also feel good to read.

Despite all our carry on, we Aussies aren’t into making a fuss about our efforts. We much prefer to let them speak for themselves. Well, as a departure from my usual, I’d like you to read my book Happy, and let it speak to you too.

What’s the book about? Well, having put years of research and thought into it: nothing less than a fresh way of finding how to enhance happiness in your own life.

As you know, people make a lot of grandiose claims about how to be happy, don’t they? Yet, few translate into anything useful and some are almost insulting. Why? Because fulfilling happiness is not some kind of cloak you can suddenly slip on. Nor, surprisingly, is it necessarily something to directly aim for either.

As it happens, some people make themselves sick seeking (or even demanding) happiness. Inevitably, that translates into the opposite: a great deal of unhappiness for everyone.

Which brings me back to the Happy book and why it will help you. Writing it, I decided to make it different to all the other “self-help” books around. Consequently, it’s not one of those “Wham Bam Thank You Mam” books that dictate you do steps 1,2,3. It’s meant to refresh you, and encourage what’s best in you so that you feel uplifted, learn more about yourself, and have reasons to smile (at least now and then).

Happy has a style aimed at giving you what you need in the first read and then offering you more to come back to – when you’re ready. By combining aspects of my own life with wider discoveries about happiness, the book is designed to provide you with real world ways that work (rather than some idealized paradise).

I invite you to read it (as it’s available from Amazon, The Book Depository, Barnes & Noble, and that treasured little bookshop near you. Just ask for/type in the title “Happy – How To Have A Beautiful Life Now” and my name and bingo (It’s even available on Kindle)!

For the many readers who speak English as a second language I recommend reading the first few online sample pages first to make sure the text is easy enough to read. That way, the ideas will translate well.

As I am an indie author, there’s no fanfare to attract you. Nor is there a monster publishing company to lavish advertising and hype things up. Instead, it’s just me, and Happy. I trust you will judge us both by our qualities, and get the best out of us that you possibly can.
