review 1: I realized after I started reading I had never read the Happiness Project but I picked this up just due to the title. I found it thought provoking in many ways, maybe not for the actual events in the author's life, but more for her mantras and little nuggets of thought to make oneself conciously more happy.

"Choose the Bigger Life." I keep coming back to this one and I'm so glad it stuck in my mind!
It was an ok read. I liked a few of her points but it was not what I expected.

Boring, annoying, and pretentious!
