Inhaltsangabe

In How to Be Miserable, psychologist Randy Paterson outlines 40 specific behaviors and habits which - if followed - are sure to lead to a lifetime of unhappiness. On the other hand, if you do the opposite, you may yet join the ranks of happy people everywhere!

There are stacks upon stacks of self-help books that will promise you love, happiness, and a fabulous life. But how can you pinpoint the exact behaviors that cause you to be miserable in the first place? Sometimes when we're depressed, or just sad or unhappy, our instincts tell us to do the opposite of what we should - such as focusing on the negative, dwelling on what we can't change, isolating ourselves from friends and loved ones, eating junk food, or overindulging in alcohol. Sound familiar?

This tongue-in-cheek guide will help you identify the behaviors that make you unhappy and discover how you - and only you - are holding yourself back from a life of contentment. You'll learn to spot the tried-and-true traps that increase feelings of dissatisfaction, foster a lack of motivation, and detract from our quality of life - as well as ways to avoid them.

So, get ready to live the life you want (or not?). This fun, irreverent guide will light the way.

Good content, miserable sound quality

The book itself is great! It puts a smile on my face every time I recognize one of the "strategies" to be employed by myself from time to time. The narrator does a good job with intonation, but he reads way too fast in my opinion and sadly the sound quality is abysmal (why?!?).

Great concept - probably the best "How to" guide

The concept of the book is interesting. List all possible ways to misery and avoid them and you will be on your way to happiness.
At times, some chapters felt a little too long where the author could have just cut to the mustard. The narrator's voice was okayish but that is a very subjective thing to say.
All in all, probably, the best 'how to be happy' guide I have ever seen. I recognised behaviours in my own life that may be detrimental to my mental well-being. This book made me realise that some things got to change.

<br />Humorous way of telling you about your bad habits

20 to 30 aren't quite important. Funnyl
premise with a couple of introspection inducing moments. One can take something without much effort.
For those ones wanting to reflect about their life without being to serious about it. The book frees itself from the bad reputation of the self help industry.

Großartig, jedem zu empfehlen

Eine lustige, unterhaltsame "Lektüre" zum glücklicher und erfüllter werden. In höchstem Maße gehaltvoll. Man beginnt, zu reflektieren wo die eigenen unklugen Verhaltensweisen einen an Zufriedenheit hindern.

Not a worthy read

The author tries to pack some known concepts into a amusing shell, but everything he says is too glaringly obvious. There is nothing to be learned from this book.
