Reviews from series:
This book stimulates both mind and body to see where does happiness actually lie. It is within us. I've learned to exercise greater control over my sad feelings once I read 'A Thousand Paths to Happiness'. I've taken a different path to happiness and that's what has made the difference with this book. It's made me feel better about who I am because it was written for me. My psychology. Made me feel better than any other book I've read so far.
