THE HAPPINESS PROJECT Or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun

by | Read by Gretchen Rubin

Personal Growth • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Colette once said, "What a wonderful life I've had! I only wish I'd realized it sooner." Gretchen Rubin knows she’s fortunate, but she wants to appreciate her life even more. First, she reads for weeks, works ranging from Plato to Oprah, Virginia Woolf to the Dalai Lama. Then she develops a systematic resolutions chart, broken into month-long segments based on themes such as work, marriage, parenthood, and money. And it works—she IS happier by year’s end. It’s easy to relate to the down-to-earth Rubin, and her slightly raspy voice and enthusiastic delivery enhance that connection. She's not afraid to share personal foibles or admit failure. Will you be inspired to create your own happiness project? You will, at least, clean your closet. A.B. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2010]
