I'm not sure if I'll get the book as I sometimes find such humorous approaches hard to read - or should that be too easy to read? The The Guardian was also not so flattering about it - but the article was a good reminder to question negative habits....
Here are some quotes:
“Don’t label anything as good or bad. That’s why you suffer, that’s what stops you from being optimistic. Accept yourself and everything in you.” Byron Katie, a spiritual teacher from America.“Think about it! We organise our minds to obsess about things that don’t amount to a hill of beans. You be free now!” Bill Clinton at a crowded fundraiser in Greenwich.
"I start to see a common thread in my encounters. Optimism is not about the future and it’s not about the news: it’s in my power. It’s about how I react to events, the moment they occur. It’s in the mind. The real optimists, the people I admire the most, have a set of beliefs and routines for reacting that keeps them happy and alive."
