Review: Add More ~ing to Your Life: A Hip Guide to Happiness by Gabrielle Bernstein

Lots of people are selling "happiness" these days as if it were a marketable commodity. But in her hip self-transformation book, Add More ~ing to Your Life, motivational speaker and life coach Gabrielle Bernstein truly shows you how to make happiness a way of life. Ms. Bernstein is bringing happy back.

Designed to bulldoze negative thought patterns and create personal change through positive affirmations, physical activity, and visualization meditations, Gabrielle guides the reader to happiness in 30 days through her dynamic
~ing, a proven method of sharpening one's intuitive senses and activating untapped inspirations.

Gabrielle will prepare you to change your life by accessing a state of "flow," helping you connect with your
~ing, your inner guide, and readying you to release your limiting beliefs and to choose happiness.

Received from the publicist for review.

This one gets four stars. It was upbeat and friendly and certainly excellent for Gen Yers, although it could be a bit too annoying for anyone older due to the author's wording. The italicized "~ing"s throughout certainly got annoying very quickly. The messages are valuable and appropriate for fans of The Secret, as it involves meditations and such. While I didn't agree with everything the author suggested, I do think almost everyone will take away at least one thing they can use in their own life to add more "~ing".

★★★★ = Really Liked It

I'm glad to hear you lied it! It sounds like it would be as you described it: Fun and intersting for younger people but slightly annoying at times for the more mature crowd. As a generation Y person, I think it would be a fun book if read in short spurts.
