Cassandra's Review- The book to me is very fulfilling in that it showed me that other people find happiness in their own ways. A book can not really bring you an answer to your own happiness, but this is more like a guide to help you open your mind to possibilities. It also depends on your work at self help and willingness to change, because the author can only show you ideas not force you to utilize them.
