"In the 31 years that I have made the Happiness Decision I have read a large number of books on happiness. Happier Made Simple is on the top of my list of must-read happiness books. It is packed with how to make the right choices so you can respond to the challenges of life. Randye Kaye has done an outstanding job of presenting tools and strategies that will change your life around for the better!"
Randye Kaye's Happier Made Simple pulls together key insights and strategies from the vast body of research on mindfulness and cognitive psychology to provide concrete, actionable ways to take control of finding your own happiness, with a heavy dose of humility and humor. I will be recommending it particularly to the parents I serve as I believe it promises to be a powerful tool for helping them find more joy and less stress with their young kids. What a gift.
Almost finished with the audiobook and loving it Randye! So much great info without all the psychobabble. Love your honesty and humor. This is one I'll listen to over and over again, so it really sinks in!

"This book is like having a conversation with that friend you always seek out for advice, because she gets it—and cuts to the chase, with humor and warmth. There are stories you can relate to, and ideas you can use, right from the first page
I loved this very user-friendly book about making one’s life happier, a little at a time. The book is easy to dip in and out of, and because it isn’t too long, it’s not intimidating. She’s also terrific about revealing examples from her own life, so that you feel you’re having a conversation with a friend, rather than some guru who claims to have all the answers. Honestly, just reading it made me feel happier!
I LOVED this book. Not only was it easy and pleasurable reading, but also immediately useful. Most self-help books are a lot of talk. But HAPPIER MADE SIMPLE gave me actual techniques that I was able to put into practice right away. Randye Kaye’s warm, conversational tone draws you right in, even while she’s sharing specific nuts and bolts. Her message about the power of language is meaningful. But she tells you how to actually use that power to make your own life happier. Her openness about her own life’s challenges not only gives a welcoming tone, it also proves that she walks the walk. I highly recommend HAPPIER MADE SIMPLE.
"To read Randye Kaye is to know Randye Kaye. She is truly a wordsmith, both written and spoken. Her personality flows through her prose and gives the impression of a friendly conversation over a glass of wine.
Randye Kaye has given us a gift, not just of words and phrases, but of a million different ways we can shift our thinking to guide us to being happier. I love the tidbits, quotes, and action challenges scattered throughout the book. They give the reader something even more specific to focus on and ways to apply her teachings to our everyday moments in life. For the left-brain science types, she gives us facts, research, and some neuroscience confirmation that what she is teaching us is both true, but also helpful for us to understand the WHY of this exercise. Randye’s sense of humor, her personal stories, and her casual conversational style of writing kept me engaged and wanting more. I feel like I’ve taken a masterclass with a personal instructor who happened to sit next to me at a coffee shop. Luckily, this class is open to anyone who wants to read it!"
A guide to overcome lifes challenges with a bonus, turn them into positives with Randye's easy fun steps. She gives us the tools to be in control of our own happiness. A must read!
