JOYFUL The Surprising Power of Ordinary Things to Create Extraordinary Happiness

by | Read by Ingrid Fetell Lee

Personal Growth • 9.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

There is a calming quality of the author's performance of her empowering audiobook, which reminds us that we shouldn't let our culture dissuade us from finding joy in the tangible qualities of the world around us. At once powerful and innocent sounding, Lee's speaking voice has a beautiful lyricism that is compelling but never upstages her message. The design expert and blogger organizes natural and man-made phenomena into 10 "aesthetics of joy" such as Surprise (contrast and whimsy), Transcendence (elevation and lightness), and Celebration (synchrony, sparkle, and bursting shapes). This audiobook is an invitation to pay attention to the things in our environment that bring happiness and a warm reminder that we have the power and the right to design more joy into our daily experience.
