Review by Library Journal Reviews

The goal of Blumenthal's new book (after 52 Small Changes) is for people to make one small change suggested by the author's 52-week program and experience less anxiety, be more productive, have better memories, and feel all-around happier than they did a year before. The author takes a holistic approach to wellness and asks readers to do easy things, such as smiling more, as well as undertaking more difficult tasks such as facing personal demons. Each weekly challenge comes with a pertinent quote, rationale, and step toward change. VERDICT Perfect in its simplicity and comprehensiveness. [Page 68].
