Review: Happiness at Work by Srikumar S. Rao, Ph.D.

In these tough times, there are few people who are completely happy with the current conditions. From business executives to the everyday Joe or Jane, everyone seems to be going through a rough economic and personal crunch. But acclaimed business school Professor Srikumar Rao says that we can learn to create joy no matter what else may be going on around us.

Rao shows you that it isn't the negative thing that happens to you that causes your unhappiness, it's how you see it. Happiness at Work is a thought-provoking new title that moves the mind away from negativity and forces you to resist labeling situations as "bad", but rather seeing them as neutral.

The Happiness Choice provides:

* Surprising ways of looking at change and problem-solving

* Exercises that shift one’s perspective

Learn the vital wisdom necessary to achieving a joyful, successful life as you define it through greater resilience and a strong inner core. Get it now with The Happiness Choice.

Received from the publicist for review.

"Happiness at work" sounds like an oxymoron to many, but according to the book it can be done. Try not to faint from the shock!

This one gets four stars. It had a great flow with a friendly style which made it very readable. The chapters were a nice, short length which made them easy to consume. This was a great guide filled with all sorts of wisdom and thought provoking discussions. This would make a great gift for anyone suffering at a job they hate (and who has ever had the feeling that they are working inside a Dilbert comic), or for the new graduate just entering the workforce to help head off any issues before they start

★★★★ = Really Liked It
