Really great book. Even though this book had a heavy business/manager slant to it, it is practical for everyone. This book isn't a "self-help" book because it's packed with research and justification. ( )

This book isn't extremely complex but was very meaningful to me. Achor does a great job of lying out here his arguments piece by piece and then tying it together into a coherent whole. Here's to more happiness for us all. ( )
