“I'm an expert in happiness. My web site on the subject draws 7 to 15 thousand hits a day because it's all about happiness. I tell them this: Buy Happiness is a Choice. Don't read it at first. Just turn straight to the chapter called ‘Shortcuts.’ There are six shortcuts. Practice one shortcut a week for six weeks. When you have done that the quality of every day of your life that follows will surpass the happiness you've experienced prior to following this recipe. You'll never be able to be as unhappy as you have been and you'll never be able to be unhappy as long as you have been in the past. Every day will be happier.”

“I love this book and keep copies with me to give to people. I recently gave a young woman a copy that was my flight attendant. She approached me and said that I just seemed so happy that she had to ask me why. I was on my way home from a weeklong program at the Option Institute®. I am asked the question quite a bit these days. Usually about my optimism, or my energy, but the bottom line is that I have learned through the books and teaching of the Kaufmans to truly choose happiness and live it. This book was my first step into the fabulous life I now live. I have seen so many people transform their lives with the tools available to everyone who wants to live a life of love and happiness. Take the first step, read this book.”
