31 Days to Happiness - How to Find What Really Matters in Life
*a BookLook Blogger review*
31 Days to Happiness is a solid book about how to find happiness, or rather eternal joy in your life. He uses the book of Ecclesiastes as the Biblical backdrop for this journey, following King Solomon through his life, successes and mistakes alike. This book is meant to be read one chapter a day, so that in just one month you can be a happier soul.
I enjoyed reading this in-depth study of Ecclesiastes, and may read it again one day. It is well-written and interesting. I learned quite a bit about Solomon, touted to be the wisest man in history. This felt like a good Bible study, a search for wisdom, the exploration of the universality of man's search for meaning and joy, and an inspiration for making changes in my life for the better. I admit that I didn't read one chapter a day - some days I really didn't want to put it down, and other days I didn't want to pick it up, but I did read it in about a month, and took quite a few notes for myself to look back upon.
I was very glad to see this wasn't just a feel-good, quick-change self-help book like many that have similar names. This is a good read with solid advice that will do your soul good, whether you are a Christian or not.
