Happy Chasing Happy: An Aimless High to Happiness by Jerome Isip is an amazing book that you will read again and share with your children when they get older. I know people say that men don’t like to talk about emotions and they are closed up. Maybe they have not met Jay Isip or they haven’t read his book. Jerome is an MMA fighter; he is covered in tattoos and is a general tough guy. But when you read this book, you will notice the real guy.
Jay talks about his life and how he followed his ambitions, despite the bumpy road he had on the way. Throughout the book, he maintains a humorous tone that keeps the reader entertained and very happy. He talks about how he fought off drug and alcohol addiction, and many other activities that made him “happy,” but really, these just made him prone to self-destruction. He wanted to change his life. He wanted a life that was healthy and gave him true happiness. But he wanted to achieve that on his terms and he did.
Jay’s journey is pure and very simple and, no, it was not easy. The words he chose and the way he candidly speaks make this book very special. It is as if you are having a conversation with him. The book is concise and very entertaining. I already recommended this book to my sister to share with her son, who is having challenges in his life. Maybe Jay’s influence can help him make wise decisions. A very well written account of a struggling man. I appreciate his honesty and how candidly he talked about his failures and his wish to become a better person.
