This was a worthwhile in not entirely innovative read. I really enjoyed the premise of finding happiness in your everyday life. I also liked the fact that Rubin broke it all down into accessible chapters, focusing on one new theme each month. She has a good voice and I did like Rubin for most of the book, though she borders on a tad self-righteous and too-perfect at times. To give her credit, though, she recognizes these faults and is quick to point out her failures. Overall, I'm glad to have read it though it wasn't earth-shattering information. ( )

I actually really like this, and I was surprised that the book had garnered the low star reviews and all their accompanying reverie.

Gretchen has obviously thoroughly researched her drive to be happy, and jumps feet first in when trying all the techniques she has identified, then is happy to report on their success or failure in her mission.

I don’t see that her life circumstances detract from this at all, yes many people are far worse off, but that is never a reason to not live your best life, or indeed, improve upon your lot. As humankind slowly realise that *everyone* has mental health, surely we should support endeavours to seek a peaceful and happier life?

I’m glad Gretchen discusses her faults and failures so openly. It balances the book, one that was all happy-happiness with a bit of zen on top would be far too saccharine. Mind you, in the Pollyanna week, I’d have maybe screamed into more than one cushion, if it were in my house. There are times when one should embrace their inner grouch, as it is just so much fun. ( )

The author, a married author with two small girls, realized one day that she simply was not as happy as she might be and set out to change that. Along the way she becomes a better wife, mother, friend, sister and is happier. She took a year to do this. Guess what I'm doing this year? ( )

A very light hearted account of happiness, what it is and how to achieve it. Don't expect any major enlightenments, but still a light, easy read ( )

Really interesting, inspiring read. Now I just need to decide what to do with it. ( )

A fun, funny and wise book written by Gretchen Rubin, a regular HuffingtonPost.com contributor, it's a distillation of the wisdom of the ages on happiness. It provides eminently practical ways to amplify your happiness pretty much immediately (e.g. gossip less; exercise more; launch a pet project).

(Video review follows)
 
I had fun reading about Rubin's triumphs, insights, and failures. She's honest about her frustrating experiences, which are often more interesting that her successful ones.
 
If you are interested in clarifying your reasons to become uncluttered, are looking to be happier, or simply enjoy the genre of “a year in the life” style books, I recommend checking out The Happiness Project. It’s a great reminder for not letting the joys of life pass you by.
