Description

In How to Be Miserable, psychologist Randy Paterson outlines 40 specific behaviors and habits which - if followed - are sure to lead to a lifetime of unhappiness. On the other hand, if you do the opposite, you may yet join the ranks of happy people everywhere!

There are stacks upon stacks of self-help books that will promise you love, happiness, and a fabulous life. But how can you pinpoint the exact behaviors that cause you to be miserable in the first place? Sometimes when we're depressed, or just sad or unhappy, our instincts tell us to do the opposite of what we should - such as focusing on the negative, dwelling on what we can't change, isolating ourselves from friends and loved ones, eating junk food, or overindulging in alcohol. Sound familiar?

This tongue-in-cheek guide will help you identify the behaviors that make you unhappy and discover how you - and only you - are holding yourself back from a life of contentment. You'll learn to spot the tried-and-true traps that increase feelings of dissatisfaction, foster a lack of motivation, and detract from our quality of life - as well as ways to avoid them.

So, get ready to live the life you want (or not?). This fun, irreverent guide will light the way.

Must read

The narrator was absolutely amazing, loved every second of it! All those mini jokes and different intonations used made listening truly enjoyable :)

Life changing if you are ready to do so

Must be listened to several times in my opinion. The approach really does it for me, give it a shot.

A Delightful Kick In The Rear

I listened to this whole thing pretty much as fast as I could, and not just because of the genuinely charming narrator. The author does an excellent job of pointing out the best strategies for losing at life in a cheerful tongue-in-cheek style and with the backing of years of psychological experience and research.

There were moments when I cringed as some of the methods described hit a little too close to home, but these were also the best moments. After all, if I am the cause of some of my own misery, I am also the solution.

If, like me, you're someone who has struggled for years with mood disorders, this book won't cure you of any chemical imbalances or childhood traumas. It will, however, help you figure out how not to exacerbate these unavoidable troubles.

This book definitely gets my recommendation.

Very worthwhile listen

Excellent insight into the ways we inadvertently make ourselves miserable, and how to avoid them (or continue if that's what you want).

Interesting

A somewhat unsettling look into a lot of the choices I make. Some parts were uncomfortable to listen to because it's like they were describing how I think / act, which I thought was unique to me. I have just listened through the whole book, and if nothing changes, I can say that this helped me be more aware of some of the harmful choices I make.

If you are interested, buy it

It was exactly what I was looking for. The irony alone sells it, and it has a lot of practical advises. I totally recommend it.

Humorous and Relatable Truths

From its beginning this relatble lityle book pokes fun at all the misert inducing behaviors we so often find ourselves doing. I found it both twlling and entertaining.

Funny and informative

In the interest of full disclosure I am generally rather sceptical of self help/ self improvement books. I was pleasantly surprised. This book quickly and with a lot of wit goes through a list of forty ways we tend to sabotage ourselves and make our lives far worse than they have to be. I recommend it both if you want to change and if you just want a laugh.

Good content, miserable sound quality

The book itself is great! It puts a smile on my face every time I recognize one of the "strategies" to be employed by myself from time to time. The narrator does a good job with intonation, but he reads way too fast in my opinion and sadly the sound quality is abysmal (why?!?).

<br />Humorous way of telling you about your bad habits

20 to 30 aren't quite important. Funnyl
premise with a couple of introspection inducing moments. One can take something without much effort.
For those ones wanting to reflect about their life without being to serious about it. The book frees itself from the bad reputation of the self help industry.

Großartig, jedem zu empfehlen

Eine lustige, unterhaltsame "Lektüre" zum glücklicher und erfüllter werden. In höchstem Maße gehaltvoll. Man beginnt, zu reflektieren wo die eigenen unklugen Verhaltensweisen einen an Zufriedenheit hindern.

Not a worthy read

The author tries to pack some known concepts into a amusing shell, but everything he says is too glaringly obvious. There is nothing to be learned from this book.
