    Unfortunately I could not stay focused or interested when the narrator failed to tell his audience the assigned point values for the various lifestyle factors on the test to determine if the reader was happy or not. Without that critical information, the book becomes somewhat pointless. The narrator's delivery was not always appropriate, either.

    Nice concepts, but layout of ideas seemed redundant. Narrator was distracting from message because he sounded like a newscaster announcing headlines and had even mispronounced words at times.

    As much as I dislike self-help books, this was actually interesting and contains lots of useful information which is good to consider (even though it'd be impossible to implement in my country, but one can always dream :) ). I wouldn't say it's a great title, but I certainly don't regret listening to it — food for thought is always appreciated.

    The narrator guy sounds pissed and had a snotty attitude at times... was kind of weird. Like he was yelling at you at times. The book is a bit socialist... but overall very good. I would however not listen to him about Finances or Health... Although being able to go to a dentist is said to help the happiness factor... It's best you read Dr. Hal Huggins "Uniformed Consent" first before just jumping a dentist chair. Second... YOU DON'T Fluoridate your water... proven to destroy IQ and eat wholes in your brain. Third... Don't listen to him about his recommendations about finances.. go read some Robert Kiyosaki instead! He is unaware of how some of the things he recommends will no doubt increase your chances of living a unhappy life, if your health and finances gets screwed! BUT, anyone that loves statistics and ways to increase your longevity it's certainly worth a read/listen/
