The Happiness Project
by Gretchen Rubin
“The Happiness Project, or, Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun” by Gretchen Rubin is nonfiction. This memoir consists of one year in the life of the author during which time she attempts to improve her state of happiness through the use of self help topics and projects. She uses measurable goals in each area of her life. Her efforts include all aspects of modern life: balancing work with personal relationships with health and finances. Her writing mixes advice and research with personal insights that make this book compulsively readable.
