I loved reading this book, full of practical tips and exercises. This book is highly engaging and practical and gives you an idea of how to bring more personal and professional happiness to your life. It helps you define, plan, and execute your plans on the road to happiness. This is all done so that you want to grab a paper and do the exercises; it guides you step by step and adds checks and valuable tips.

Herman made this book very personal by sharing his challenges, learnings, and questions he answered himself along the way. This book is a great life companion, a practical guide that not only teaches you about the principles of happiness but activates you towards the realization of it—highly recommended for anyone seeking a genuine and transformative journey toward increased happiness.
