Brajesh's Review : Happiness Is . . .
Happiness Is. . . by Ralph Lazar & Lisa Swerling, lists out 500 things to be happy about.
In an increasingly complex world, this simple approach to happiness is both refreshing and relevant. The book list 500 everyday reasons to be happy about through simple sketches.
I can assure you that while reading this book, you will have a perpetual smile pasted on your face and will also burst out laughing when you find a happiness that you relate to. The book is a collection of illustrations, originally featured on the “The Happy Page” on Facebook.
This page invites you to submit your own reasons to be happy about (through lastlemon.com) and based on reader suggestions, the husband wife duo of Ralph and Liza illustrate your idea.
What an amazing concept to spread “happiness of small things” in an increasingly intolerant and paranoid world.
I obviously have subscribed to the feed of the page and would recommend you to do so as well. On doing a quick online search I figured out that Ralph and Liza are accomplished and well established cartoonists, and the book shows the power of their craft.
This is a book not to be read and kept aside, but savored and best kept in your office to be flipped over many times a day, as boost of energy.
