Absolutely rated it liked it Shelves: Quite an inspiring book. Marci Shimoff is the woman’s face of the biggest self-help book phenomenon in history, Chicken Soup for the Soul.

Her six bestselling titles in the series, including Shimofr Soup for the Woman’s Soul and Chicken Soup for the Whimoff Soulhave met with stunning success, selling more than 13 million copies worldwide in 33 languages and have been on the New York Times bestseller list hzppy a total of weeks.

Marci Shimoff is one of the bestselling female nonfiction autho Quite an inspiring book. Marci Shimoff is one of the bestselling female nonfiction authors of all time. In addition, she’s a featured teacher in the international film and book sensation, The Secret. I learned quite a number of lessons from this book. I learned that we can be happy if we want to even for no reason and that is actually what happiness should be.

We shinoff choose to be happy by ourselves and not depend on other people. According to Shimoff, we have happy genes so some of us are programmed to be happier than others but we yb to cultivate those genes.

Happiness should not be hinged on material things or success or having friends or loved ones by our side. They sure can make us happy but dor are temporary. What we need to nourish is the happiness gene that is built inside of us. The book is well-written and organized. Smimoff would first enumerate the different rules not just the seven because there are many other sub-rules inside of them and then expound them by giving examples from his letter senders, her experiences and she had a lot to say about her own self that I liked more than the other examples and excerpts from other books like Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love 1 star and Rhonda Byrne’s The Secret.

Some rewson the rules should not be new to most of us.

However, just like most of the bj books, we all need to be reminded of these things. Sometimes, we are too busy with our bg lives that we take good grains of salt for granted or we overlook these things.


Thank God there are people like Shimoff, Byrne and Macomber to constantly remind us to slow down and look at how we behave and deal with people at home, in the office, on the streets or even online.

I do wish that I had had the print version instead or the audio book, as there are some exercises throughout the book that would have been easier to marfi about and respond at ones leisure.

Happy for No Reason: 7 Steps to Being Happy from the Inside Out

Aug 20, Kara Lane rated it really liked it. Marci Shimoff has written a great book on how to be unconditionally happy. Using stories from her own life and from the genuinely happy people she interviewed, she demonstrates how it’s possible to be happy regardless of external circumstances.

She provides 21 “happiness habits” that can be practiced by anyone to help them achieve deep and lasting happiness, rather than the fleeting kind based on external things that so many people experience today. Some of my favorites are: The book is really a joy to read. The stories are inspiring, the quotes are uplifting, the exercises are effective, and there are even comics to make you smile.

For instance, in one chapter where she talks about happiness robbers, there’s a picture labeled “Low Self-Esteem” that shows a man writing in his diary, saying, “Dear Diary, Sorry to bother you again Oct 08, Karen rated it really liked it.
