Review: Wake Up to a Happier Life: Finding Joy in the Work You Do Every Day

User Review  - Valeri - Goodreads

Some good (mostly common sense) points were made, but I didn't close the book feeling as though I'd learned much. And while the writing style was "cute", I often found my mind wandering as I read. It had an uplifting quality, but I wouldn't go out of my way to recommend it. Read full review
