In a nutshell, what is this book about?

My initial aim was not to write a self-help book, but to answer one of Life’s big philosophical questions, What makes a person happy? The answer turned out to be: satisfying ongoing innate needs.

One of those needs is to feel that whatever happens in life, we can handle it. 
 In discovering that answer I found ways to satisfy that need, and so my book turned into a self-help book.

Is this book for you?
 It is, if you are interested in a new, fresh approach to the big question, What makes a person happy? And it’s for you if you would like guidance on how to feel resilient. as a result, be even happier than you are now.

Unlike other books on the subject of happiness, this book won’t tell you what to think or what to feel. Thoughts and emotions are ornery creatures that come unbidden, and refuse to be corralled. So, instead of trying to control them, we focus instead on changing our awareness and our behaviours. Gentler, and more effective.

Join me. You and I. All of us.

We are all in this together.
