How to Get Happy and Stay That Way: Practical Techniques for Putting Joy into Your Life by Joanna Romer is a useful tool for readers looking to bring contentment and happiness into their lives. Everyone searches for happiness and most of us spend a lot of time pursuing this. The book has good tips and techniques that will aid in building a foundation of happiness which cannot be shaken. Each chapter ends with guidelines for achieving happiness which readers can practice and incorporate into their lifestyle, thereby leading to gratitude, peace, and joy.

I found the book insightful and uplifting at the same time. It broadens one's perspective on how to look at events and incidents that happen in our lives and around us, and how to react to them positively. It makes happiness our birthright and not a goal, and will motivate us to look into all aspects of our lives and work on them. The 25 things to do to get happy are also helpful to all those who want to get started. Happiness has a lot to do with knowing and understanding ourselves completely, and the author helps readers tap into that space. Facing the world we live in becomes more manageable and easier after reading this book. It teaches us to connect with the plight of others, sympathize with them, and, if possible, help them. The emergency recipes for happiness are indeed helpful and give ideas on how to stay happy.
