Book Review: 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 – Gretchen Rubin

I enjoyed this book overall, though it was nothing great and I’m not on a huge tear to recommend it far and wide. Very similar to an AJ Jacobs or Tim Ferriss type lifestyle experiment. Just not quite as interesting or exciting.

Nevertheless I do like the idea of creating a monthly project list and working towards each goal and ideally creating a routine and habits that at the end of the time period help you to improve and grow. I did pick up a couple ideas, but not enough to make the time reading a full book worthwhile. Another great example of a book that I would have raved about had it been a 100 page ebook.

I guess I may be inclined to recommend this book to anyone that has never read a book of this sort, but if you are working towards constant improvement and are already on this sort of path of monthly and yearly goal setting, feel free to skip it.
