On receiving a copy of the book, The Dalai Lama said, “I am convinced it will be of benefit to many people”.
The Dalai Lama’ endorsement of Patrick’s book was published in the Tibet Foundation’s London newsletter No32 (May 2001):
What is in the 30 Day Guide?
‘I am unhappy and I want to be happy…
I am happy, but I want to be happier’
Do either of these ring true? If so, this book is for you. Patrick uses his understanding of both modern psychology and ancient wisdom, to explain what happiness really is and where it can be found. It shows how to make your experience of happiness more intense, more frequent and enduring.
Other endorsements include:
Robert Holden (originator of The Happiness Project and author of ‘Happiness Now!’ and ‘Shift Happens!’) says: “Happiness is a way of travelling. This book makes an excellent friend for your journey.” Dorothy Rowe (author of ‘ Depression: The Way Out of Your Prison’ and ‘Choosing not Losing’) says: “Being miserable can become a habit when we forget how to put aside the thoughts that lead us to being miserable. Patrick Whiteside shows us how we can recognise our habit of being miserable, and how we can have ready access to happiness.”
