In The Happiness Project, she worked out general theories of happiness. Here she goes deeper on factors that matter for home, such as possessions, marriage, time, and parenthood. How can she control the cubicle in her pocket? How might she spotlight her family’s treasured possessions? And it really was time to replace that dud toaster. Each month, Rubin tackles a different theme as she experiments with concrete, manageable resolutions—and this time, she coaxes her family to try some resolutions, as well.
A bit of a disappoint after loving The Happiness Project so much. This one reads almost like a redone Happiness Project without a huge amount of new insight or experience. I read it and added some of her resolutions to my ideas for 2016, but overall I wasn't deeply entrenched in this book.
