Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Ultimately, what generates a feeling of well-being, says the author, includes life with other people, managing a bad day well, and developing will power. Bono’s teaching can be distilled to a positive mind-set, and throughout this book, he walks alongside readers to help them develop just that. Verdict: Although geared toward young adults, Bono’s message will benefit older readers as well.” Library Journal
There are so many things to pull out of this book even beyond strategies to achieve happiness-Bono shows readers how they can make many choices that lead to a healthier lifestyle overall. His students' stories powerfully bring the research into practice. Dr. Beth Lingren Clark, assistant dean and director of first-year programs at University of Minnesota
This is one of the best books I've read that offers practical solutions for the mental health crisis. This should be required reading not only for students and higher education professionals, but for anyone who is interested in adopting healthier habits in their own lives. A must read! Dr. Amelia Parnell, vice president for research and policy at NASPA-Student Affairs Administrators in Higher Education
