Happiness. We chase it, we crave it…it’s so in demand… yet so scarce and fleeting.

In The Happiness Revolution: A Manifesto For Living Your Best Life, bestselling authors Dr Andy Cope and Professor Paul McGee deliver a page-turning self-help book of the times, for the times.  As the world wakes up to a new kind of normal, The Happiness Revolution challenges readers to sign up to an uprising of wellbeing and to making the most of the privilege of being on this planet.

The book outlines a 10-point Happiness Manifesto. Grounded in the science of human flourishing and the reality of life, the principles are simple, do-able and above all make a difference not only to yourself but to others too. Let the fight back to mental wealth start right here.

Welcome to global domination of the happiness kind!


  • How to regain your sanity, clarity, and wellbeing, even when your smartphone, kids, spouse, job, and possessions seem to be conspiring to keep you from doing just that.
  • Why it can be so hard to maintain a happy outlook when the outside world has never been so fast, complex, and unpredictable.
  • How to be at your best in a world that is doing its worst.

Happiness is the #1 thing you want for yourself and your family. The Happiness Revolution is an indispensable guide for everyone trying to live their best life and to spread some happiness whilst doing so.

my thoughts

For any of you that have read my blog before you will know I love a self-help book, especially when it comes to happiness, mental health and wellbeing.  This book fitted perfectly and left me feeling happy and ready to take on any challenge the universe decides to throw at me!

The Happiness Revolution is split into three parts.  Part 1 introduces us to some background and gets us thinking about how the world has changed, and how we, as humans, struggle to keep up.  This section made so much sense to me, and is written in a fun and clear way, no academic gobbledegook that mere mortals would struggle to understand!

Part 2 takes us through the ten step manifesto of things we need to sign up to help us to live our best life.  Full of fantastic advice and tips, colourful, fun and enjoyable there is at least one manifesto for everyone – and if you really want to improve your life and feel happy, sign up to all ten and join the revolution!  I loved this section so much, it really got me thinking and gave me some really useful tips and tricks to use when I’m struggling; tools that I’m sure I’ll be using on a weekly basis.  It will open your eyes to the way you look at things and how your look after yourself.  A couple of my favourite bits were in relation to snakes and ladders (yes you read that right….it will make perfect sense when you read the book!) and learning some wonderful phrases in other languages.

Part 3 is a section of allegories – stories that are fantastic, and will also get your mind ticking…..

 I honestly really love this book! The authors are fantastic – not only highly intelligent (a Dr and a Prof!) but funny and down to earth too.  It felt like they were chatting away to me rather than me reading a book, and I found the approach really refreshing.  It’s easy to love a self-help book when the authors themselves are so wonderful!  They use their own examples to show how some of the things they suggest will help us.  There is also research in this and references for those who want to go away and read into to things a bit more, and an index at the end so you can pick out any bits you want to go back to.  I, for one, will certainly be going back to this time and time again.

An absolutely, fantastic book that I’d recommend to everyone.  So what are you waiting for…..join #thehappinessrevolution!
