Author clearly has no understanding of PTSD

The author obviously has no understanding of PTSD. To suggest that people who get it focused on the negatives and not the positive outcomes of the trauma, is ludicrous and an insult to so many who have served. PTSD is not comparable to people who have benefited from trauma. PTSD is the subconscious brain defending itself/reliving it. Someone can have PTSD and still grow from their trauma at the same time. Unbelievable how this even got published. I couldnt continue after that as it completely discredits everything else he has to say. This is a disgrace.

Great commonsense advice

This was a really appealing podcast. Nothing groundbreaking, but really good steps that are achievable, and motivating without being all American and shouty. I've already got lots of simple ideas that will help me kick start a happy new year.

Definitely worth a listen!

Tim delivers no-nonsense, science-backed advice on cultivating happiness in this series and I couldn't get enough. His delivery is warm and engaging and so easy to listen to. A great series for anyone looking to prioritise their well-being.

Got me thinking

Feels like one of those rare books that may actually make me change behaviour rather than put down and never think of again. I've already worked out some of my own habits for happiness.

It's nothing new

Everything here has been said before, for decades in fact. There's nothing new or innovative and it's not even repackaged in a new or interesting way.

The practices here are effective because they've been researched and rehashed many times. Good thing it's free, I would have returned it for a refund otherwise.
