How To Catch Happy: Book Review

Wow. All I can really say is. “Wow.”

How to Catch Happy is a very short yet VERY insightful book on, well, happiness. Using a few fishing anecdotes the author, Jim F. Kukral, addresses an issue many of us don’t realize until it’s too late: that we worry about so much we forget our own happiness.

I really have to say I am glad I took the time to sit down and read it when I did because it made me see that I spend a lot of my time worrying about money and what I don’t have and not enough of it doing things I enjoy. We always hear that, “Money isn’t everything,” or, “Money can’t buy happiness,” but do we ever really listen? More times than not we probably blow it off and continue to care way too much about that next paycheck.

How to Catch Happy lets the reader know it is okay to be happy. Sure, bills need paying and we need to eat, but we do not need fancy things to be happy. This is great news, considering all the economic hardships we seem to be going through today. I know it makes me feel better.

Before reading the forefront of my thoughts was, “How can I make some money today?” After reading, it is more like, “I’m going to take some time out today to wind down and re-energize.”

I highly recommend this book to everyone. I do not care if you already think you are happy; please take twenty minutes out of your day to make a lifelong change in your way of life. You will not regret it!

You can purchase it at Amazon.com for $0.99 for Kindle or $7.00 paperback. It's worth it!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
