Anyone would benefit from reading this book by Jill Seely. Not only does Road of Happiness bring together awesome, inspiring quotes from well-known authors and historical figures, Jill adds much by way of personal experiences and insights to paint a hopeful picture of what the road to happiness looks like.
Great book! A must read if you are looking for ways to improve your life and experience more happiness. I was able to use the book's concepts in my own life.
This is a great book for anyone! It will help you to take a look at yourself and identify the areas you can improve in. In so doing, you will discover how to find the road of happiness in your life!
I agree with earlier reviews - as I read this book, I felt like I was talking with my best friend - my best friend with GREAT advice! Jill Seely offers a straightforward, clear outline for any one hoping to change their life's direction toward happiness. She offers advice for the individual and the couple and incorporates spirituality into the plan. Peppered with personal experiences, it is clear that Jill Seely's approach is effective. Happiness takes work, but by starting with a self evaluation of yourself, it becomes easier to take each step towards the goal of happiness. This book helps any person start the process, no matter what stage in life he may be in now. I am so glad I read this book!
I have found one of my new favorite books! Jill has a simple yet profound perspective on Happiness. I loved how you could relate to the "Road of Happiness". You could put yourself in those same situations because they are so real and comprehendible. Her perspective on happiness and Joy was motivating and sincere. This book touches on so many important feelings from happiness, gratitude, love, sorrow, fear. The importance of spiritual, mental, emotional and physical health. After reading the "Road of Happiness" I was more encouraged to Find Joy in my Life's Journey! Like Jill relates in the book, the "Road of Happiness" is a wonderful GPS for life's challenges. What an uplifting practical guide for working through life's many challenges.
Road of Happiness is a book I will keep close to hand and refer often for inspiration, guidance, and self-improvement. It represents the perfect balance of personal experience, spirituality, and both thought and action based direction. The length and content is perfect for all audiences, as it can easily be read by those with demanding schedules and re-read multiple times by anyone seeking new, deeper meaning. Simple and realistic examples are utilized throughout the book to ensure the readers understanding of topics and strategies discussed. After completing Road of Happiness, I truly felt motivated to act on the feelings and thoughts I experienced throughout the book and strive to improve joy and happiness in my everyday life along with improving my relationships not only with others, but with myself. Thank you Jill for the time and energy spent in sharing your knowledge and experience with a world that could be filled with a little more happiness!
What a great read! I love books that make me want to be and do better. That is what this book did for me. Not only does the author describe what happiness is, She lays out a very achievable road map to obtain it. I love the real life experiances described. The author makes a friendly relationship to herself and others by doing this. I am looking forward to more books by this author.
A refreshingly practical read that brings understanding and hope to everyday living through real life situations. Great
insights to a richer life. After reading it twice, I am buying many copies for gifts to friends and loved ones.
After reading Road of Happiness thoroughly, it has definitely helped me sort out some things in my life. The most valuable benefit of this book, in my opinion, is how it can begin helping immediately. For example, in the Relationships chapter (awesome) the author gives a sentence template which helps me be assertive yet respectful. She explains the "why" and the "how" of this communication tool (sometimes to solve a problem) and I think it's a real constructive approach. Such communication is needed for healthy relationships, which are some of the keys to our happiness, now and in the future. This is just one example of a method from this book that i can often put to use. Thank you!
Road of happiness made me want to be a happier person. Jill's easy to read to the point book gave great insight about how people perceive themselves and what we think makes us happy. Yet reminds us that it is in ourselves to choose.
