  • Happy to review this lovely book.

    Mr. Brown is a tricky character to fathom. Neither magician nor mind reader he nevertheless mystifies with his keen intellect and astonishing use of language. This scholarly work explores what we were, what we are and what we may become. Mr.Brown's style is such that there is little ambiguity in his observation of the human condition. Happy is not a self help book, more a manual for the mind. The authour is keen to highlight and avoid the unhelpful mantras of DIY brainwashing which he opines do more direct harm in maintaining a realistic perspective. He concentrates rather on that which has proved to have a positive influence on his own outlook and the lives of others.

    Thanks for your feedback!

  • A very useful, no-nonsense book.

    A thoroughly readable and useful book. I'm familiar with Stoic philosophy but I can imagine that some readers may have trouble accepting some of the ideas expressed, for example the very narrow range of things we have control over and the potential dangers of positive thinking. It's the sort of book you need to read more than once to assimilate all the information, especially in the middle sections but I found some very memorable passages. I recommend it.

    Thanks for your feedback!
