Now Available in Amazon in both eBook and Print Copy.
Are you happy? It’s not a frivolous question. Most people go about their lives having all the reasons to be happy but are not. They’re too busy searching for happiness, they wouldn’t recognize it if it stared them right in the face. Why?
This book digs deeply into the whys and wherefores of happiness allowing us to discover remarkable insights we’ve taken for granted or simply ignored. The author for instance, would have us see, perhaps for the first time, that true happiness isn’t about having the best of everything. It’s about feeling the best of what you’ve got. She makes us understand (not without envy) why an average, middle income family can wake up each morning feeling like they’re on top of the world, while others with fame and fortune wake up with nothing more than a lousy hangover.
Be happy. You can. This book will show you the way.

My Holland’s book “Happiness is the way” does not pretend to present a secret or magic formula for happiness, nor does it paint pictures of cloud nine experiences. It does contain some of the best observations of the phenomenon of happiness I have read in a long time. The down-to-earth, no-nonsense and to-the-point kind.
An example of My Holland’s earthiness is her chapter about the work-life balance. Towards the end, she recommends an attitude to say “No” to work, when work and work issues have started to rule one’s life. It is more than stress-prevention or self-preservation. It creates, or re-creates, a firm foundation for living life, and experiencing happiness.
However, this is just a snippet. The book flows over with easily digestible yet directly applicable advice and tips to increase happiness in one’s life. My advice: read one chapter a week and practice.

My Holland has written a comprehensive and very accessible resource that is a pleasure to read. With the sources she has used, from Heraclitus and Blake to Singer and Seligman in more modern times, she has left no stone unturned in her efforts to provide a wide-ranging account of the ways of emotional balance and positivity in a life. The application of these principles in the working life is really the key to understanding this matter in depth, and My has provided this admirably.

Happiness is the Way is a pleasant read and provides real insight into the substance of happiness. It’s not pretentious, and is not an academic book, despite its solid references. There are plenty of practical tips which draw deeply on My’s research and consultancies in emotional intelligence. It’s an easy read and I would recommend this book to anyone whose mind is curious about this most fundamental, yet elusive element of our humanity.
