    Thank you uatro White Lion Publishing and Netgalley for this ARC in return for my honest reviewThis book was different to what I had expected I had hoped for a book really digging in to contentment and what that really means This short book was pleasant to read and had some gems amongst it but felt like a short foray on how to be happy rather than digging into the true meaning of contentment which from my understanding is uite different to striving for always being happyThere were four sections each of which incorporated myths legends religious wisdom and life advice Some of these were interesting for example the page on stoicism and Taoism but some such as eat fruit and veges not soA pleasant enough book but not one I would recommend to anyone really wanting to go deep into the subject of being contentThank you for this ARC in return for my honest opinion

    I loved this book It was very underrated and looks underrated with that cover but brings up a lot of interesting ways to seek happiness in simple ways in every day life As I was reading it it made me aware of some daily enjoyments and victories This book was given to me by the publisher through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review – all opinions are my own

    This book combines some good ideas in the area of happiness and well being but there is nothing new here The book is well illustrated so maybe the aim was to make a coffee table book with very small chapters containing 2 3 pieces of actionable advice per chapterAlso I think the title was misleading There was a lot less of how to be content and a lot of how to live well I expected a lot of tips on being happy with what you have because IMO that's contentment But maybe that's just meI received a free copy from NetGalley

    I was sent a free copy of this book in exchange for my honest reviewWhile the first book I read by Arlene Unger How to Make Space was a nice read although with a lot of flaws this one seems to recycle big parts of the other book but the intent is happiness instead of making space I was really looking forward to it and some of the mythology and stories were really nice but I cannot ignore the big elephant in the book and I feel sorry for that because the illustrations are really nice too
