Did you grow up in a house where everyone spoke Greek? If you did, chances are you would naturally know how to speak Greek, and if not, you would need to learn it, step-by-step, one lesson at a time.
So…did you grow up in a house where everyone was happy? If you did, chances are you would naturally know how to be happy, and if not, you would need to learn it, step-by-step, one lesson at a time.
Happiness as a Second Language teaches happiness the same way you would learn any language that wasn’t spoken in your home. It starts with the most basic concepts of being happy — learning how to say you’re happy and how to count the things that make you happy. The lessons then turn to more complicated techniques — happy days and weeks, happy colors, happy nouns, verbs and adjectives, and ultimately to advanced concepts, including overcoming the negative form and understanding the past, present, future, and “future uncertain” tense.
Being happy is completely within your reach, but you have to do the work to get there.
This book is the ultimate textbook. The writing is simple and straightforward, the instructions easy to follow, and the sample situations familiar, touching, often heartbreaking and sometimes hysterical. Start now, and you will be fluent in Happiness before you know it.
