    the premise of this book is that all of us have the ability to overcome issues that have damaged our ability to function. The author introduces concepts such as neuromuscular feedback, body polarity, and remapping beliefs. My favorite part is that it is scientific in approach-not hippie-dippie spiritual. After having my share of failed run-ins with religious and self-proclaimed spiritual types I am leery of people who claim spiritual authority.

After having my share of failed run-ins with religious and self-proclaimed spiritual types I am leery of people who claim spiritual authority. Dr. Pratt's writing stayed 99% clear of spiritual overtones! it made it possible to read and absorb the concepts without feeling squirmy. After trying the 4 step process I am feeling more like myself. It felt like a giant weight had been lifted of my shoulders - it's remarkable. As for the writing, it was enjoyable and personable, but kind of dragged in the end. I actually must confess I skipped ahead to reveal the fourth step. This is why I rated the book with 4 stars instead of five. other than that I loved the book and am excited to explore the concept of remapping my mind with these 4 simple steps.

    I actually stopped reading this after an interesting discussion with someone who gets paid to listen to me whine and rant and muse. I was SO excited about the book, with its promise of unlocking my "natural state of happiness" which I SO wish I possessed. I feel like I live with someone who has been described as "genetically happy," while I fight the slide into the black hole over and over, pretty chronically. I wanted a book that would give me the epiphany "so THIS is how a person is naturally I actually stopped reading this after an interesting discussion with someone who gets paid to listen to me whine and rant and muse.

I feel like I live with someone who has been described as "genetically happy," while I fight the slide into the black hole over and over, pretty chronically. I wanted a book that would give me the epiphany "so THIS is how a person is naturally happy!" Alas, I tried. And I followed the instructions...pick an event or situation or some such "thing" from your past that is painful. I wrote in my journal and ended up with FIVE PAGES of painful events. Where to begin? Aha, I thought, I will ask my counselor! Who suggested I begin by STOPPING READING THIS BOOK. Perhaps a more positive approach would be to list the positive things that are in my life! (what a concept). Anyway, I appreciate that there was a shining burst of hope on my part, and accept that I am like that Lil' Abner character who walked around under a dark cloud -- and that I CAN affect that by my actions... another hope dashedLOL

    I love this book. In fact, among all the self-help books i have read so far, this is the only one i trust like a bible. I love the idea that we are all meant to be happy. Consciously, we try to be happy and our ultimate goal is to be happy in our life. No one in their right frame of mind would want to be a sad person. Anyone? However, the problem is, subconsciously, due to some previous microtraumatic experience which we might have already forgotten, we are held back which makes us lack of confi I love this book.

However, the problem is, subconsciously, due to some previous microtraumatic experience which we might have already forgotten, we are held back which makes us lack of confidence and fear to succeed even. Here is where the four-step solution comes into picture and it works. It truly works on me. The story of the flea and the elephant paints a vivid picture of our two minds – conscious mind and subconscious mind. I am amazed at how much we are controlled by our subconscious mind without us realising it. The best part of the book is it promotes a technique called neuromuscular feedback or muscle testing/applied kinesiology. The series of exercises are utterly simple yet effective and that is what i have been practising on a regular basis even after a month reading the book. This therapy is called energy psychology, a rather recent finding, it seems. This is not only a good read, but also a code to joy, no less.

    The amazing part of this book is the results I feel in my life. Following the four-step process in this book has been a transformational experience.

This book is the science of our energy combined with the steps to let things go that hold you back in your life. I will read this book again. Although digging through old memories was difficult and heavy, the steps that I followed to let the negative beliefs go were so restorative, I felt light and that feeling has continued since with my quick every day "refreshers" recommended by the authors. I recommend this book to everyone...especially those interested in personal development and success.

    This was an interesting read with good practical application. It addresses the problem of why we become stuck, saying that we live in a sort of "fog of distress" that is the result of early trauma which has yet to be resolved, and it leads the reader through a process of clearing that fog. The style of the book is easy to follow and relate to. Numerous anecdotes help the reader understand the various kind of self-limiting beliefs we adopt as a result of trauma, showing how they affect everyday li This was an interesting read with good practical application. It addresses the problem of why we become stuck, saying that we live in a sort of "fog of distress" that is the result of early trauma which has yet to be resolved, and it leads the reader through a process of clearing that fog. The style of the book is easy to follow and relate to. Numerous anecdotes help the reader understand the various kind of self-limiting beliefs we adopt as a result of trauma, showing how they affect everyday life and slowly constrict joy. Having helped the reader in this first step of isolating the issue, it then gives three very simple and quick practices to build into one's day for thirty days in order to clear and re-pattern the mind. The "code to joy" referred to in the title is literally a sort of plug-in sequence that has been used very successfully by the authors in the lab and by individuals at home. Easy to remember and practice almost anywhere, it promises to help the reader deal with old trauma and build new, healthier neural networks. Definitely worth a try.

    Basically a bunch of half-proven horses*t that likely works the same way as reiki and other energy based healing practices. If you don't believe in any of that, don't bother with this book. That said, I'm sure a lot of people do somehow get benefits out of those practices. But I highly doubt the reason those practices are ever effective is because we all have a "biofield" that gets it's polarity reversed.

And how convenient that just about everything in modern life as well as all your negative emotions contributions to "reversing the polarity". The stories are too feel-good and the few scientific studies that get trotted out are hardly conclusive or consistently replicated in the actual scientific community. Maybe there's something there and the common science will be proved wrong, but mostly this book is more new age malarky.

    Right now I feel like this book has some good example stories, but not enough information on how to associate anything they might do for things that are specific to me. I was hoping for more of a self-help book -even if I did not agree with the methods. So far, I haven't really seen anything regarding methods and I'm half-way through the book. I would have thought by the half-way point I would start getting into their approach and methods more than just identifying things that cause a person to b Right now I feel like this book has some good example stories, but not enough information on how to associate anything they might do for things that are specific to me.

I would have thought by the half-way point I would start getting into their approach and methods more than just identifying things that cause a person to block out aspects that are associated with their overall happiness. I'll keep reading and update when done.

    Amazing and life changing to the right person! After reading this book I made an appointment with Dr. Pratt and flew across the country to see him. He is such a gentle soul and I will be forever grateful for him. I plan to see him again I’m sure of it.

    This book was really hard to get through. It is full of trite anecdotes with idealized happy endings. There is constant hinting that this big "solution" to happiness will be revealed but it never comes. This book was really hard to get through.

    The protocol that Dr. George Pratt offers is truly helpful. It only takes a few minutes a day, but when I do it, it is truly helpful in grounding me and overcoming my emotional blocks. Love it!

    I am not a fan, unfortunately... the first 94 pages (literally) are a cross between, "here are some awful things that might be depressing you -- let's explore that and dwell on it awhile" and an infomercial for how great the technique will be once you try it, but we won't be telling you what it is until later. I was reading this because I'd gotten a copy in a giveaway once, not because I was specifically seeking help for a feeling of sadness or hopelessness.

I was reading this because I'd gotten a copy in a giveaway once, not because I was specifically seeking help for a feeling of sadness or hopelessness. But I sure was closer to that headspace after the first couple of chapters. Full disclosure: I haven't finished the book. I might try picking it up again if I can get back to the good mood I was in before I started it... Alternate, more descriptive title: Trigger Warning. Start at Chapter 3, maybe, then go back for the beginning part. I bet if the book was organized that way it would avoid its greatest drawback.

    This is different than what I expected. It includes simple exercises to get in touch with your core beliefs - specifically the ones that are limiting you. There were way too many anecdotes along the lines of "Susan experienced ______. Then she did the four steps & found that she had thought _______ the whole time about herself without knowing! Now she is just fine." Practical in some senses, a little loopy in others. It was a little too repetitive for me but I walked away with one or two exercises This is different than what I expected.

    I love motivational books. But I love effective books more. Code to Joy delivers on its promise to "unlock your natural state of happiness." A beautifully written blend of story and science, you'll understand why you have areas that, no matter what you do, you continue to fail at—relationships, earning and keeping money, good health—whatever it is for you. Follow the 4 steps of the Code to Joy. Really take them on and do them and watch what happens in your life. I love motivational books. But I love effective books more.

    I'm going to update this review after I've spent a few months practicing it. Until then, I feel Pratt is onto something. Code To Joy is the way of closing loose emotional and memory ends the way that David Allen is to work related ones. I find that removing these blocks makes me happier and more relaxed. I'd highly recommend this book to anyone trying to achieve peak performance. I cannot comment as to whether it fixes all of the issues it claims.

    Easy to read, easy to digest, Code to Joy pulls together many of our modern self healing ideas into a four-step process. Happiness can be achieved through a simple, painless, drug-free regime carefully laid out by the authors, in a clear 1-2-3 technique, complete with explanations of how and why these steps work. I will suggest it to others.

    I am thankful to the friend who recommended this book. I found it a little hokey - the arm test especially - but the other exercises were helpful. I would recommend this book to anyone who is mentally stuck.

    I skipped some chapters because there's just too much storytelling and it's boring. I'd rather have techniques or tips to help work with some of my issues. The simple steps shown in this book simply don't appeal to me. It's just not doing much for me... so yeah... i'm kind of abandoning this book.
