Reviewed by Foluso Falaye for Readers' Favorite

There is more to life than meets the eye, and living without the knowledge of or curiosity about things that exist outside the conventional, materialistic system of beliefs is somewhat limiting. Typhoon Honey is a book that aims to create a new path of success and joy by absorbing and incorporating feedback from others' motivational stories and exploring all the forces at work: other people, physical forces (including the laws of physics), and invisible forces and energies (nothing mystical). To help readers find true happiness and success, Kris Girrell and Candace Klein Sjogren examine different elements and ideas and how they influence human behavior: the observer effect, deconstructing beliefs, systematic racism, Covid-19, the pure power of love and vulnerability, positive intention and grounded optimism, scarcity and abundance, and much more.

After reading Typhoon Honey, I felt I had unlocked something supernatural—a new pair of glasses that gives me a different, liberating view of the world. The idea that "what we see is filtered and tainted by our belief system" is helping me to examine learned beliefs that no longer serve me in the process of deconstructing them. Typhoon Honey is filled with several exercises, details about experiments, and examples from the authors' personal experiences and that of the people they know. I got a clear understanding of the concepts as different scientific and psychological studies are juxtaposed with several real-life examples. I believe that the mind-blowing ideas and stories in this phenomenal self-help book by Kris Girrell and Candace Klein Sjogren could help unite the world and reduce suffering as they encourage readers to heal from harmful, discordant ideas and create their own happiness stories.
