    Review of Stop Chasing CarrotsI m sure some of the advice is useful, however the book is loaded with humanism and evolutionary teachings Read with open mind.

    It is an amazing and honest book, as a Sociologist, I can truly say that for a long time ago I have not read it something similar, it has open my eyes and I love the academic references he does from sociological studies, great and amazing book it worth every minute you read, of course, it is quiet notable some biases from the author but I belive you need to understand the context of the author, this, however, do not rest significance to the book

    The Emperor is nude Finally.With scientific precision, the author challenges the popular ideas presented in majority of popular self help books and reveals the dangerous lacks in them There is an alternative, however, and it is no mumbo jumbo, one size fits all formula, but rather a process of getting to know and accepting oneself to be able to live in accordance to that reality.An insightful and powerful read that will significantly improve your quality of life.

    In my view the book is brilliant While reading I have captured a good number of insights and liked the references, the author is making at the end of each chapter, to other further readings, books and articles Definitely 5 stars to me.

    Pretty good takeaway for self help without the veneer of power of positive thinking claptrap Also a book I only snagged as it was a freebie Packed with a lot of what the author needed to come to his conclusions good research if you aren t familiar with the topics but that s how it reads as research I am familiar, thus skimmed a lot, but no biggie Glad for the bullet point chapter conclusions final rules listed at the end Pretty good takeaway for self help without the veneer of power of positive thinking claptrap Also a book I only snagged as it was a freebie Packed with a lot of what the author needed to come to his conclusions good research if you aren t familiar with the topics but that s how it reads as research I am familiar, thus skimmed a lot, but no biggie Glad for the bullet point chapter conclusions final rules listed at the end

    Almost a 5 star bookOn Kindle this book is titled Stop Chasing Carrots which is a much better title and, in my opinion, should be the only title The author has obviously read enough bad self help books to be irritated If you read very many, that will happen to most people The author has also spent years researching happiness in a scientific manner and has great insights Instead of being focused on proving other books and theories wrong, I wish he focused on simply presenting his material Almost a 5 star bookOn Kindle this book is titled Stop Chasing Carrots which is a much better title and, in my opinion, should be the only title The author has obviously read enough bad self help books to be irritated If you read very many, that will happen to most people The author has also spent years researching happiness in a scientific manner and has great insights Instead of being focused on proving other books and theories wrong, I wish he focused on simply presenting his material This is a book I would recommend with the caveat that the reader skip over why other theories don t work and read what he has discovered in his research
