The quest to find happiness is a popular pursuit, and King, psychology expert for the nonprofit Action for Happiness, provides readers with ten actions that will move them in a positive direction. Creating the acronym Great Dream, King's keys range from giving, relating, and exercising, to direction, resilience, and acceptance. Each chapter explores a "key," accompanied by explanations, charts, exercises, and examples of each concept. Instructions for learning new things, connecting with people, and living mindfully will resonate with many readers, and their follow through will undoubtedly result in more fulfillment. VERDICT A cut above similar titles. Not only is the content here beneficial, its packaging creates a practical guide to follow. Copyright 2017 Library Journal.
