About book: This book is really motivating. I started my own happiness project, and it's really been inspiring and helpful. I really like how Rubin admits when she has been less than perfect and shows that she's human like the rest of us.I also really like that she reviews what worked for her and lets go of what didn't. Too often we keep trying to do something because we "should", regardless of whether or not it worked. It's encouraging to keep going and to keep focusing on improving your life. ubin is a book-dork and I love her for it. Like me, when she has a problem to solve her first reaction is to find a book on the topic. After deciding that, on the whole, her life is good but there were areas that need work, Rubin set out to do some research. Dividing up her life into categories she thought deserved a polish, Rubin set out to find solutions to her problems. What she came up with some wonderful ideas. More importantly, she came up with some of her own life truths: " What's fun for other people may not be fun for you -- and vice versa. What you do EVERY DAY matters more than what you do ONCE IN A WHILE"Plus commandments such as: "Do it now. Let it go. Spend out (spend money to make life better)."Some may apply to you, others not so much. I've already come up with a few of my own, including "Don't make new friends with people who have obvious baggage." and "If it's not fun and you don't have to do it, don't."
