I like some stunt journalism, if it's done well(#ajjacobsfan). I had a hard time swallowing this one for several reasons.

1) The tone. Several readers mention Rubin's seeming inability to understand real problems (a well-known, influential lawyer telling the average middle-class family to spend money? understandable). Rubin does address that. My problem was when she started adding in all the responses to her blog, which seemed to serve the purpose of proving/celebrating her "right-ness." She would experience something, post about it, and include half a dozen other posts that backed up her experience.

2) There were a lot of good tips in the book... except most of them came from someone else. And, if you're like me and have read Gladwell, Gottman, and heard of the others, I would have rather had the list and done my own reading than take second-hand advice. Also she didn't like [b:To Kill a Mockingbird|2657|To Kill a Mockingbird|Harper Lee|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1361975680s/2657.jpg|3275794] so we inevitably clash on an important point.

3) I agreed with some of the people she talked to about the title. It doesn't sound NYT best seller. But then it was. So what do I know?

In writing this I fully acknowledge that I am flying in the face of her statements about criticism. And I'll work to change that. Because I think she's right. Critics are not always the best thing to have in this world. ( )

In this lively and compelling account, Rubin chronicles her adventures during the twelve months she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific research, and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. She found that money can buy happiness, when spent wisely; that novelty and challenge are powerful sources of happiness; that outer order contributes to inner calm; that the very smallest of changes can make the biggest difference.

A ton of good tips for small changes along with big changes if you’re ready for that. ( )

A combination of 12 mini books, each in the form as a months goals. Somewhat a condensed version of Getting Things Done, relationship advice, family, friendship, religion and time. One interesting insight by Gretchen was the comment that Agnostics/Athiests read biographies to identify with people for a similar reason that Catholics read the bible. Some good insights and many good reminders on how to be happy. ( )

I got some good ideas and some inspiration and that was the point. ( )

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.
