Every now and then a self-help book comes along that questions the very nature of happiness, shakes the very foundation of all the things you hold dear, and forces you to reconsider every assumption you've ever made. This isn't one of those books. How to Do Everything and Be Happy is a book for ordinary people. With ordinary lives. It's for people who have been ambling along and wondering why they're not - well - just that little bit happier. It's a book for most people. It's a book for you.

Found my self not wanting to finish this book, starting off by reccomending everyone should take a day off work every month to have a "Boxing day" a day off for yourself which I though was quite a good idea! and looked forward to the next chapter, however for me after that it just died of death. Each chapter being like Groundhog day, having simular days with different titles! Making lists, diaries and collecting reciepts and sticking them in a box and then in an attic.

Peter Jones admits that he done this book by taking several books on board and then writing his own. Im giving this book 2 stars, perhaps its just not my type of book so Ill give Peter the benifit of the doubt and give him an extra star for luck!!
