Solve for Happy is a startlingly original book about creating and maintaining happiness, written by a top Google executive with an engineer's training and fondness for thoroughly analyzing a problem. In 2004 Mo Gawdat, a remarkable thinker whose gifts had landed him top positions in half a dozen companies and who - in his spare time - had created significant wealth, realized that he was desperately unhappy. A lifelong learner, he attacked the problem as an engineer would, examining all the provable facts and scrupulously following logic.

So grateful I found this. it's re-enforced some of my own beliefs but more importantly introduced me to new ways of thinking and dealing with a forever busy, chatty mind.

God Bless Ali and I'm sure he stood in his highest place.

When Zoe Walker sees her photo in the classifieds section of a London newspaper, she is determined to find out why it's there. There's no explanation, no website - just a grainy image and a phone number. She takes it home to her family, who are convinced it's just someone who looks like Zoe. But the next day the advert shows a photo of a different woman, and another the day after that.Is it a mistake? A coincidence? Or is someone keeping track of every move they make?

Had potential but found it very predictable

I found the first half was slow and i struggled to keep going. Second half much better but either i'm a literary genuis, which I really don't think I am, or it's a very predictable story.
The characters in the second half seemed like they'd had an IQ reduction and were overlooking some very obvious clues and acting frustratingly dumb. i did keep going but the last 30 mins was exactly as predicted.
Just my take.

Loved it. simple knowledge that's been staring me in my face for years but never reached my brain. half way through it started implemented what in was learning and got immediate effect by having the stress removed, somewhat, and giving me real direction for the future of my business.
