Book review: The Happiness Habit by Brian Colbert

Now in these times of doom and gloom, many people are simply miserable. If you are one of those people and you don’t ever want to be happy let me suggest the following: (1) Do not read this any more (2) Do not buy The Happiness Habit Ok, now that that’s sorted the rest of you are very welcome. Phew, I didn’t really like the miserable ones anyway. :)

Working as a therapist I notice that many people are trapped in their past and many therapists keep focussing attention on bad stuff that happened. Funny enough, some people think that if they keep talking about their problems they might go away. In my experience that never happens. If you keep talking about bad stuff you probably won’t feel any better.

Brian Colbert’s book, The Happiness Habit, is a well written, practical book which might just be helpful to you if you would like to improve your life. Brian gives you a step by step plan and a really good set of exercises to help you plan a better future. The book talks about building better relationships, staying positive and building confidence.

Having gone to a number of Brian’s training sessions I have always been impressed by his honest, direct and sometimes confrontational style. In many ways, the book typifies Brian’s off the cuff style and his own good intentions to help people, like you, simply have a better life. Brian is one of the best trainers and therapists I have had the pleasure to meet. 

The book comes with a wonderful CD, which is very easy to listen to and gives clear instructions on building happy (and lasting) states. So do yourself a favour and if you want to have a happier life – buy, read and use The Happiness Habit. See  or click here for further details on this book.
