Lucky Go Happy: Make Happiness Happen! by Paul van der Merwe looks at happiness as a complex puzzle. Every chapter of this book covers a small piece of that big puzzle and provides insights into the workings of happiness. The story begins when King Lion, who wants to find what happiness is, summons the rat, Lucky, and sends him on a mission. “Enquire from each and every animal what happiness is to them and report back." The rat begins its quest, and the first animal he meets, the elephant, gives him its secret: "Every calamity hides an opportunity." And so from all the animals he manages to collect the secret of their happiness, which surprisingly is an eye-opener for all. The time came to report back and Lucky’s analysis helped Lion make happiness for himself and his subjects, and he became affectionately known as the Contented King.
Lucky Go Happy by Paul van der Merwe is a very interesting book, with a deeply entertaining plot, apt naming of different characters, and a sharp exchange of dialogue. The dramatic scenes and events that take place are intuitive and well thought out to reflect the logic or the idea the book conveys. This is one of the best books I have read on the theme of happiness in its many dimensions, and the best as far as the narrow subtopic of the attainment of happiness goes. With a well organized table of contents and a meaningful division of chapters, it was a pleasure to read this book.
