I've read a lot of books about the value of a mindful, gratitude-based approach to life, but nothing like this one. The stories are very personal, and the author is uniquely "real" about his life -- you don't get the sense that he's speaking from some high pedestal of perfection. There's no complicated program here, either, and no jargon. No cold showers, no pseudo-scientific dietary theories, no bullet journals or hipster PDAs. If you can breathe, you have all the necessary equipment you need to be happy. There are suggested exercises that give you something tangible to work with, if needed, but the real connection is made by just riding along with the author as he gets to experience life -- learning by example rather than instruction. It's well worth the read, and I hope he'll write more books in the future.
I laughed out loud....a lot. I also shed tears in the Metro Dinner reading about his family. Great content for changing your outlook on a day to day basis. It has only been two days since I started reading Get To Happy. Ted's. Get To.... look at life works. I have been smiling more and looking for the good in daily encounters. I can't wait for the follow up in a few years. Thanks for sharing,
I've purchased 14 of Ted's book and I can't wait to share this book with my entire staff. Ted's book is well written; his life is full of wonderful and interesting adventures. Not only does he share the life lessons he has learned, but he also teaches us how to learn from them as well and how to lead a happier life. This book is a must for anyone to read but I cannot wait to empower my staff with the GET TO principle.
