    Description

    A New York Times Best Seller

    In this uplifting memoir in the vein of The Last Lecture and Man’s Search for Meaning, a Holocaust survivor pays tribute to those who were lost by telling his story, sharing his wisdom, and living his best possible life.

    Born in Leipzig, Germany, into a Jewish family, Eddie Jaku was a teenager when his world was turned upside-down. On November 9, 1938, during the terrifying violence of Kristallnacht, the Night of Broken Glass, Eddie was beaten by SS thugs, arrested, and sent to a concentration camp with thousands of other Jews across Germany. Every day of the next seven years of his life, Eddie faced unimaginable horrors in Buchenwald, Auschwitz, and finally on a forced death march during the Third Reich’s final days. The Nazis took everything from Eddie - his family, his friends, and his country. But they did not break his spirit.

    Against unbelievable odds, Eddie found the will to survive. Overwhelming grateful, he made a promise: he would smile every day in thanks for the precious gift he was given and to honor the six million Jews murdered by Hitler. Today, at 100 years of age, despite all he suffered, Eddie calls himself the “happiest man on earth.” In his remarkable memoir, this born storyteller shares his wisdom and reflects on how he has led his best possible life, talking warmly and openly about the power of gratitude, tolerance, and kindness. Life can be beautiful if you make it beautiful. With The Happiest Man on Earth, Eddie shows us how. 

    Filled with his insights on friendship, family, health, ethics, love, and hatred, and the simple beliefs that have shaped him, The Happiest Man on Earth offers timeless lessons for readers of all ages, especially for young people today.

    This is a topic we should never forget and Mr. Jaku's telling of his experience is very concise yet with feeling.

    Amazing! Touching, powerful message.

    WOW. I was literally in tears at certain points of the book. Jaku’s story is so utterly horrific, yet touching and inspiring in many parts. This book should be required reading for everyone, but especially for the younger generations that might not understand many of the powerful truths imbedded in Jaku’s story, and in his message to humanity. Thank you, Jaku. Shalom Aleichem.

    Heartfelt story

    I listened to this book with my husband and kids (14 and 11) and we absolutely love it. It is sad, but it is a story that we can’t never forget to avoid to let ever happen again. It shows how you can find happiness and strenght through such unimaginable horrible circumstances. My family and I thank Eddie Jaku for sharing his story with us.

    Amazing, I could not stop listening

    Absolutely incredible lessons or words of advice. The author’s positivity and gratitude is beyond anything I’ve ever seen. Yet he’s lived in hell and back! I just want to hug my new friend Eddy!
