"I can relate to so much of what Jim shares in this wonderful book. We
each have our passions and the things that bring us to a place of peace
and contentment, but many of us put them on hold to "chase the dream."
The tales Jim tells in this book really caught me right between the
eyes, given the close parallels to my own life. I'm spending this
weekend taking stock of what's important to me, and what I'm doing to
make myself truly happy so I can really be useful to my family and those
people I come in contact with. Great book Jim!"
"Jim teaches every business owner the how to be happily successful!"
"My brief review of How to Catch Happy: A lovely read for a Sunday
afternoon -- thought-provoking without veering into heavy philosophy or
proselytizing. Jim has a friendly, mellow writing style that meanders
easily from story to story like a lazy, winding river, exploring the
concept of happiness -- real happiness -- among "the haves," "the
have-nots," and the many of us who find ourselves somewhere in between.
Highly recommended. Bravo, Jim!"
"This is a great and insightful read for an afternoon (I was able to read
it during a lunch break). In 15 short pages, Jim captures the idea of
"Happy": What it is and how to catch it. His real life examples from
both his own experiences and others will help each reader gain an
internal view of their own lives and how they too can make the turn for a
happier way of living."
"The best stories are simple and told from personal experience. Jim knows
how to tell a great story; despite my lack of enthusiasm for fishing,
the stories here are easily accessible and universal. Bravo, Jim."
"This is a thought provoking quick read about what's really important in
our lives. Not the stress and hassle of the everyday fight for survival
that gets us off-track, but more about the contentment deep down in our
soul that we all desperately need but all too often pass over in the
name of success. Thanks for the little wake-up call Jim."
