Lee (Love Idol) opens her delightful treatise on all things happiness-related with a confession: she is not always happy. Throughout the book, by admitting to being in the dumps and explaining the mental gymnastics that get her there, Lee does a superb job of encouraging readers to take proactive steps toward finding their own “happiness sweet spot.” Lee considers herself a doer, and instead of wallowing in her negative thoughts, she has created a series of thought experiments and crucial questions that direct her toward a happier, more fulfilled life—all of which she shares with readers, tailored to a wide range of dispositions. She offers Scripture-heavy exercises that will equip readers to view life and its many mishaps with confidence and optimism. The book is chock-full of winsome anecdotes and self-help quizzes; readers will find themselves actually having a blast as they figure out what makes them tick and learn habits for healthier living. Lee is a born storyteller and, for those of faith, this text will be a helpful reminder to stay the course of Christ—even in the darkest moments. (Aug.)
