    This book is a wonderful reminder of Gods truth and how it applies to every area of our lives. We have a wonderful loving Heavenly Father and a Savior that has made every secret to abundant life available through His Word and the revelation of the Holy Spirit to understand and apply the Word to our lives.

    This is a great book for anyone interested in finding the building blocks for a consistently happy existence. It basically delves into the notion that life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you respond to it.

    Cloud combines good psychology with genuine spiritual values in this simple but wise book that could be helpful for anyone with goodwill (not only for Christians, though he does mention God). It is like Jacques Philippe's Called to Life for beginners, and deserves wider notice than I've seen it given so far.

It is like Jacques Philippe's Called to Life for beginners, and deserves wider notice than I've seen it given so far. He starts with the premise: 'We are wired to experience happiness, but we keep hitting the wrong buttons in our efforts to turn our happiness on.'(2) We look for more money, that special someone, that promotion, to lose twenty pounds, to be more beautiful... but those are the wrong buttons. He explains why those are paths only to 'unsustainable happiness', because they are external, they do not last, and they make us ignore the very things that do have the power to make us happy: behaviours, thoughts and intentional practices - the things you do 'on purpose'. He dedicates one chapter each to qualities of happy people, including: happy people are givers, they don't wait for 'someday', they pursue goals, fully engage, connect with others, don't compare, don't overgeneralise from one instance to all, are grateful (in all circumstances), forgive, and know themselves. Highly recommended. Reviewed for www.GoodReadingGuide.com

    I am a spiritual person, but not a religious one. The subtitle of this book is what caught my eye, along with a recommendation from a friend who is going through some trials and tribulations in their life and who has gotten some help from this book. I do believe there is a gray area in some places that science and religion merge. There is definitely good advice and practices in this book. Mostly I like that we are in charge of our own happiness.

    I found the research in the book along with the simple explanations to be very interesting and useful. As a Christian who has struggled with the concept and pursuit of happiness for years. I am very excited about implementing these ideas into my own life.

    Very good book! Easy to read. Material is excellent. At times, it seems he cited studies that are commonly known but not a specific article. Cloud also contends that the Bible and psychology/science agrees. Happy people forgive, have boundaries, are grateful, etc (see table of contents). Thesis: External circumstances do not have inherent power to make us happy, and this kind of happiness does not last.

Instead, Happiness comes from things that are under your control: behaviors, thoughts, intentional practices. Happy people actively, build deep relationships in community, belong to a support group, participate in bible study, have structured times of getting together with friends/family in nurturing activities, being involved in growth activities (coach, counselor, growth group, mentor), pursuing goals (physical, financial, vocational), serving others with their time/talents, nurturing their spiritual life (prayer, meditation, bible study, retreats) exercise regularly, routine for active, practice gratitude to God and others, pursue activities they love (passions/hobbies), stretch themselves to be all they can be, resolve conflicts and pain for healing in relationships or souls. You are responsible for your own happiness! “That my heart may sing to you and not be silent. I will give thanks to you in the great assembly.” Psalm 30:12 When we are thankful and express gratitude, we have more energy, better outlook, show more relational capacity, have healthier bodies, Research: Structured gratitude exercises lead to becoming happier people.

    I feel like this book has a lot to offer as a logical, scientific look at happiness although I do believe all the advice/information presented is also biblically sound. However I felt that some of the Bible verses were being “stretched” to support some of the statements in this book, which detracted from the experience at little. Overall it was a fast easy read and I’d definitely recommend it. I really could have used this book a couple years ago to be honest.

    This is a wonderful book for anyone struggling with the desire to be happy but left wanting. I think a lot of these things I already knew from general personal development books, but this is a great start for everyone. It’s the collision of science and faith, and how God’s commands for us are exactly what lead to our happiness as evidenced by the research. Each chapter declares “happy people are...” and provides so much wonderful information. Definitely check it out if you struggle with contentm This is a wonderful book for anyone struggling with the desire to be happy but left wanting.

    Great read I love the approach on the topic of Dr. Cloud that is different from other books in happiness. It includes times of difficulty and hardship. I like the personal anecdotes that give such nice examples.

    This was an easy read, partially because I have read a few books on happiness and Dr. Cloud referenced them in this book. This would be a good choice for a Christian reading group.

    Your response to a situation really does define you. When you believe in God and live the love your neighbor as yourself - you've got happiness. When you freely give of yourself you will find happiness in the giving. In all things God. Your response to a situation really does define you.

    ***Cloud reveals the close link between Scripture and science...*** In the “Law of Happiness” Dr. Cloud mixes scientific research with Scripture to define what happiness is and how it can be found. He was surprised to find while reading the new research on “positive psychology,” it felt like he was reading the Bible.

Instead, happiness has more to do with choices, decisions and what we choose to invest ourselves in, which the Bible has a lot to say about. He uses the analogy of turning on a computer to demonstrate. If the right button isn’t pushed on a computer, the computer doesn’t turn on. In a similar fashion, he writes “…humans are wired in such a way that when properly ‘turned on,’ they get happier.” Dr. Cloud shares what he calls the “science of happiness” with readers, which are the underlying principles and practices of the “law of happiness.” He starts with a mantra we’re all familiar with that begins with—“if only.”…Full Review: http://tinyurl.com/9lz244b

    THIS BOOK IS AMAZING. I absolutely loved this book, as the author said it is basically the law of attraction applied in a christian manner. This book can change your life if you let it. it is a definite read. I also have picked up some other books by Dr. Henry Cloud as a result of this book and I can't wait to read them. Funny thing is, I read the Traveler's Gift by Andy Andrews right after this book and it was as if Andy Andrews took this book and turned it into a fictional story for his book. THIS BOOK IS AMAZING.

    I enjoyed Dr. Cloud's book "How to Get a Date Worth Keeping." I enjoy his straightforward and simple writing style. "The Law of Happiness" was recommended to me by a psychologist. Dr. Cloud does an excellent job showing how recent research in the positive psychology movement confirms the eternal truths of the Bible's prescriptions for happiness. It's a quick read, but contains profound bits that are helpful to meditate on. I enjoyed Dr. Cloud's book "How to Get a Date Worth Keeping." I enjoy his straightforward and simple writing style.

    Great wisdom Another life-changing book for me. The basic spiritual wisdom, simple facts, and very applicable. I have several books from Cloud/Townsend resources....everyone of them have read at a point in my life when I needed wisdom. I apply to my personal and professional life, and share with others through mentoring and coaching. Thanks for great reads!

    The author gave practical biblical principles in our pursuit of happiness. You are brought to the conclusion that happiness is not about your circumstances or what you have, but who you are in God and what you believe about Him.

    This is the 2nd time I have read this book. It's so easy to read, and the charming personality of the author shines through making it enjoyable. I have ready many books on this same topic, most of them spiritual, but this one is Christian. This is the 2nd time I have read this book.
