"What's the formula for a happy life? Neil Pasricha is a Harvard MBA, Walmart Executive, New York Times bestselling author, husband and dad. After selling over a million copies of THE BOOK OF AWESOME series, he now shifts his focus from observation to application. In THE HAPPINESS EQUATION, Neil illustrates how to want nothing, do anything, and have everything. If that sounds like a contradiction, you simply haven't unlocked the 9 Secrets to Happiness. Each secret takes a common ideal, flips it on its head, and casts it in a completely new light. Neil then goes a step further by providing step-by-step guidelines and hand-drawn scribbles that illustrate exactly how to apply each secret to live a happier life today. Controversial? Maybe. Counterintuitive? Definitely. THE HAPPINESS EQUATION will teach you: · Why success doesn't lead to happiness · How to make more money than a Harvard MBA · The Saturday Morning Test, The Bench Test, and The Five People Test · Why multitasking is a myth · How eliminating options leads to more choice THE HAPPINESS EQUATION is a book that will change how you think about everything--your time, your career, your relationships, your family, and ultimately yourself.

#170 The book didn't really address the main equation: Why want nothing? Why do anything? and only added a few cliche advice like it's contentment to want nothing and it's freedom to do anything.

Also, the book spends a large chunk of time talking about time wasted on emails, Multitasking and other non-important stuff and I am sure this annoys many. These almost feels like fillers to the book.

To want nothing and just be content may mean being ambitionless to another person on the opposite spectrum. To do anything mean you are one patronising good person. To have everything: this was hardly mentioned in the whole book.

Overall, the whole equation concept is quite cool and the advises are not bad. I will give it 4 stars although about 40% of the materials are standard self help advices. ( )

I had the opportunity to meet Neil Pasricha at a conference. We also received a copy of The Happiness Equation. I wonder how I would feel about the book if I hadn't met the author. I like him: he is earnest and ready to tell his own story as well as listen to others tell theirs. His advice is thoughtful and research based but can tend to the overly optimistic, feel good rhetoric that seems to be prevalent these days. Think happy, be happy.

I'm a little cynical about that attitude, and, as someone seriously considering retirement, I bristled at the advice to not retire. There is nuance and these kinds of books don't necessarily thrive on nuance: I may work but in a different kind of way. Is it retirement? But I have adopted his suggestions for managing decisions including automating my clothing options and regulating time sinks like email and social media.

I also subscribe to his newsletter and listen to his 3 Books podcast. He feeds my love of reading and books. ( )

Thanks to the publisher and goodreads for a free copy of the Happiness Equation!

To be honest, I'm a cynic and used to be a cranky psychology major, so I tend to approach self-help books with a mixture of suspicion and annoyance. Having said that, this book seems to be built on some sound principles (such as the idea of external rewards actually demotivating you in the long run, for example).

On top of that, some of the suggestions seem like lovely ideas -- the random acts of kindness, the regular walks, owning and accepting who you are as a person, unplugging, changing your whole perspective on what it means to be happy and successful. Not totally sold on the idea that these things will make me a happier person (it's currently snowing so hard I can't see across the street, so I'm hardly going to be filled with joy if I have to leave the house to go for a walk). But as far as general self-betterment goes, this book seems like as good a place as any to start. ( )
