Summary

Want to get happier? Not just a little, but a lot happier?

Now you can with Ten Times Happier by Owen O’Kane, Psychotherapist, former NHS Clinical Lead and Sunday Times best-selling author of Ten to Zen.

Modern life is a minefield for stress. Whether it’s juggling work, relationships or money, we often get stuck mindlessly obsessing about all the wrong things, not knowing what to let go of.

  • the past
  • our minds
  • other people
  • worry
  • our behaviours
  • the future

Using the latest evidence-based tools and techniques from across a range of therapies including CBT, mindfulness and interpersonal therapy, Owen provides empowering solutions to managing what keeps you stuck so you can move forward.

Want a down-to-earth guide from a professional on how you can become happier, minus the fairy dust?

Then accept, let go, grow and get Ten Times Happier with Owen O’Kane.

I realise I'm culturally catholic

The comfortably uncomfortable syndrome is a good point. Sometimes you have to sit with discomfort to make progress.

So helpful and practical! Highly recommended.

I've had this book in my library for such a long time! I don't know how I only listened to it now, especially since it's absolutely excellent! I'd recommend listening to the whole book first and then returning to the chapters focusing on the issues you struggle with in particular. The book is a treasure trove of practical, immediately actionable advice presented with kindness, compassion and common sense. I also absolutely loved the vulnerability and honesty with which Owen O'Kane shares his own story and struggles.
Overall, a wonderful and incredibly helpful book! A great ending to my book adventures of 2021. Thank you, Owen O'Kane and Audible!

just what the doctor ordered

loved this book, narrator was fab, gorgeous Irish accent. I can relate to many of the steps as I'm trying to work through them now on my journey to 'fixing' myself. I'll definetly refer back & listen to the book again. brilliant.

Good basics but that’s it

There were no breakthrough aha moments for me and I found it very male dominated thinking at times. Nothing has stuck with me and I felt the pace was so fast, I couldn’t keep up with what was being said.

One criticism.

Let me start by saying that I found the book as a whole, educational, informative and helpful.
My only concern is with the section on regrets and making amends. I feel that Mr. O’Kane did not mention that occasionally there will have been actions that warrant that the injured party are not contacted, however sincerely one may wish to make amends. It is the responsibility of the transgressor to make the decision in these cases. There are situations where to apologise or contact the person harmed would cause more grief or pain than would be healed.
I believe that this is touched upon in many ‘twelve-step’ style programmes, so I was a little surprised that it was not covered here. Other than that, I found it a very useful book.

Everyone should read/listen to this book

Thank you Owen for the gift of this book. It gave me a lot to think about. It told me things that I knew but hadn’t acted on. I am going to change myself for me and only me. Highly recommend if your lost in search of answers to what’s going on in your life and how to take back what you have given away to others. It’s time to start looking after number 1. S
