The pursuit of happiness is a fundamental human goal. We all want to be happy in life. We all deserve to be happy. We all must do everything in our hands to achieve happiness.
Sometimes we get all caught up in life’s vicissitudes that we lose perspective, especially those in the work force. And if we are unhappy at work, we will have a hard time being happy in life in general.
Happy Hour is 9 to 5 by happiness expert Alexander Kjerulf is a wonderful tool everyone must read every once in a while. It is a tool full of invaluable lessons that I’m sure you will highlight every time you read it. It is a very positive read that will help you get back in the happy track of life.
The writing in this book is fast paced and entertaining. The information is complimented by real life case studies of companies that have been successful in achieving happiness, fun illustrations, and links to the author’s website for additional worksheets and related articles. When I first read the book, the links didn’t work, I suppose the author has updated them since the book’s publication date. Another helpful thing is that the key points are clearly marked in bulleted or numbered lists. You can’t miss them. They are very helpful for when you re-read the book.
Like I said, this book is full of important happiness lessons. The most important is that Happiness at work is possible. For more about this check out the full review on my blog.

It will inspire a positive attitude and will motivate you to improve your work life and be happy. Highly recommended.
