    One thought on “Choose the Life You Want: The Way to Lasting Happiness Moment by Moment”

    1. Disclosure Won on GoodReads Admittedly defensive caveat This is not my normal sort of book selection I tend to be leery and dismissive of self help books, but the crazy title grabbed my attention while perusing GoodReads giveaways, and then I became intrigued by the substantial street creds of the author Dr Ben Shahar teaches positive psychology at Harvard, and it is the most popular course they offer in terms of enrollment.Each chapter is just 2 or 3 pages long, and there s not much text on eac [...]

    2. I want to read this book again and again so I don t forget the valuable advice I found on every page I typically don t enjoy self help books but this book has been a joy to read and consider.

    3. One of my favourite writers on positive psychology, Tal Ben Shahar, has written another winner with this book Ben Shahar dispenses 101 nuggets of advice on how we can choose the life we want Each nugget, about two to three pages, contain clear, eloquent strategies and advice The only downside to the book is that with 101 bit of advice, some of them kind of overlap I found that the best way to enjoy the book is to read it through, mark off those particulars chapters that have greater relevance, a [...]

    4. I was very disappointed with this book The book is structured as many many ideas relayed quickly with small example stories Because I had just finished Pursuit of Perfect by same author I couldn t help noticing the same stories repeating and the same ideas delivered in a less effective way The rapid fire jumping from one idea to the next leads to a big lack of flow Pursuit of Perfect excelled when relating material to authors experiences and own sense of wonder and learning This created flow The [...]

    5. I wasn t expecting this book to be as good as it was, probably because the cover wasn t all that interesting But as I was thumbing through it before actually reading it, I caught a glimpse of what lay ahead some common sense advice on living a fulfilling, better life, and some very poignant short stories to back up the professor s reasoning If you liked Chicken Soup for the Soul, you will like this one too enjoy this with a steamy cup of tea or coffee, and feet up It s worth owning.

    6. I won this book from the first reads giveaway.I enjoy self help books, so I was excited about receiving it I like that the chapters are short and straight to the point, and include a short story to drive the message home to the reader I like to read a chapter or two a day to focus on the lesson This is the kind of book I would reread and refer to specific chapters when needed.

    7. Mindfullness really applied in everyday life Pretty interesting and well written I should remember to read it again from time to time, to fix some of its ideas in my mindANKS TO NETGALLEY AND THE EXPERIMENT FOR THE PREVIEW

    8. This book should be called Positive Psychology for Dummies It s so superficial and basic that I had to double check it was really for adults I d say it s in the line of Don t sweat the small stuff.

    9. It s a good book, but if you like me have read a lot of other books on self improvement, then there s not much new things you find here Still is is great to summarize what you ve learnt and find inspiration for new things to try It is a short, but inspiring read.

    10. Humanist DevotionalAs I started this, I quickly realized that while is could fall into the quick read category, it is better digested slowly I made it part of my morning routine, and read a way to happiness each day.There wasn t anything mind blowing in this book, rather, it delivers just what it advertises a way to mindfulness The book looks at your life, and your outlook on your life and circumstances, as a choice of perspectives whatever is causing you anxiety or distress at this current mome [...]

    11. A really good read Literally had 101 ideas on living a happier life by making small changes every day Really enjoyed how short each suggested excerpt was, because it was easy to pick up and read a few in one sitting Appreciated how it wasn t preachy or boring most self help books can be total snooze fests because the author just goes on about their own personal story, this one was not like that at all Liked how the changes suggested are all things that we can do right now and in our own unique w [...]

    12. Accessible Almost hokey is its style first person then urban myrh sytle example however its a great primer and I am goi g to give it to my tweens to read as I think they will get in and goodness knows I am already seeing that we could do wirh some self awareness and positive action to disciple self as we head into tbe teenage years

    13. Another self help book filled with mottos I was truly disappointed as I had been following Tal Ben Shahar s work closely and expected something deeper I did not even read it all, which is pretty unusual for me

    14. this really needs a 3.5 rating I learned a lot, highlighted a lot, but would be better absorbed if read one chapter at a time they are all short stories so it would give the opportunity to absorb and apply.

    15. Gives practical tips to improve our lives in a moment to moment basis, by knowing that in every moment we have a choice to do a good thing, or a bad thing Touches a lot on mindfulness Think this book as a training plan for practical mindfulness.

    17. Just a fluffy little book to read here and there One page stories about people choosing to be happy and choosing to be kind to those around them.I pick this book up now and again to read excerpts It is sort of like a devotional but without the Christian piece It reminds me to be kind to myself and kind to my neighbor It is full of short one pagers Little inspiring stories such as the one about an African American teacher born in the 1930 s Her parents taught her to hold her head high and when sh [...]

    18. Hace un par de a os me enter de la existencia de Tal Ben Shahar, y del movimiento que promueve, la Psicolog a de la Felicidad Me fascin la historia de los comienzos de su Curso de la Felicidad en Harvard, cuando cuenta que al abrir el curso como materia optativa s lo un pu ado de estudiantes se inscribieron, y ahora es la clase m s solicitada.El libro est organizado en cap tulos muy peque os, cada uno con la intenci n de hacernos reflexionar las peque as y mundanas, pero important simas opciones [...]

    19. This is an easy book to read in chunks given the daily reader fashion in which it s written It doesn t adhere to a calendar, however, so you can read as much as you like or as little as you can stand The messages are quick and usually followed by an example, sometimes it s an anecdote from the authir s life or that of another person, and sometimes it s from a sociological study This helps to drive home the point I have to say that I enjoy the anecdotes from others the most and find some of the s [...]

    20. I occasionally like to read books on psychology, to understand what makes humans tick and to live a mindful life Choose the Life You Want offers 101 different choices you can make in life that can impact you than you realize A lot of the choices we make every day are routine and subconsciously made, we often don t think enough about what we do, we just do it on auto pilot The 101 chapters are short with various examples to illustrate choosing through the author s life, prominent people in Amer [...]

    21. Positive psychology Mindfulness This book is pretty easy to read, it gives suggestion plus a little stoy with a moral to learn exactly what is the suggestion about Even if I found it sometimes a little oversemplified, it is clear that the book goes straight to the point and maybe it is better so, as it is a self help manual.Psicologia positiva Mindfulness Questo libro abbastanza facile da leggere perch suddivide i suggerimenti in capitoli e in ogni capitolo c una piccola storia con la morale, pr [...]

    22. Tal Ben Shahar supplies the reader with a lot of food for thought in this snall compendium of 101 choices to consider making in your life These are the small choices we make every day that can lead to frustration or contentment After a brief discussion of the choice to be made, the author presents an anecdote or story to bring the point being made to life I read this in a couple of sittings and after awhile the different lessons tend to run together I think this book would be better consumed ove [...]

    23. I listened to this on a long drive I wouldn t recommend this as the best way to enjoy his book, I think it is better experienced over time I have since bought the paperback edition I order to re read chapters as needed.Each chapter starts out with a choice, React in anger or take a step back, followed by a quote Then the author provides a short example or story suggesting ways to react to the emotions involved Each chapter is only a fewpages long I plan to keep this as a reference to remind me t [...]
