I really love this book. It is a very easy read. I couldn't stop reading to find out that to be totally miserable is as easy to be totally joyous. I will rather be happy than sad, and nice than mean. I am so grateful for his perspective and his way of making you feel that life isn't as miserable as we think it is.

I admit to being a huge fan of John Bytheway. He's engaging, and a wonderful teacher. I am a greater fan of the lessons and principles he teaches. John lays out the plan of misery in a way that anyone can follow, but it also shows us how not to follow that plan. How to choose joy and become a happier person through our attitudes and every day choices. This book is still relevant, and I hope teens choose to let these lessons permeate their lives. What a great book!

In his introduction, John Bytheway states that in "this life, sufering is mandatory, but misery is optional". Just the start of eye opening thoughts. I highly recommend!

This little book is a funny and poignant reminder of what we need to do in order to be happy. John Bytheway does a fantastic job of creating an easy to read resource for staying on track.

Like all of John Bytheway's work, this book is awesome. I love John's insights and his ability to teach without being "preachy". His style is very fun and inspiring.

I found this book to be completely hilarious and sad. The material was presented in a humorous way,but it is so very sad that it is so very true. I highly recommend this book!

My parents got me this book when I was a cranky teenager. It's great because you can open to one page and read it instead of having to read in order. I wouldn't recommend the CD of this--it's just a recording of his voice with some sound effects. His talks on CD are way better than his books on CD.
