The Happy Student Book Review and #Giveaway

When I began to read The Happy Student, I realized that this book isn’t just for high school or college students, it is applicable to anyone who is dealing with frustration or competition. Daniel Wong’s book is one of the best motivational books I’ve read in a very long time. The focus is on academics, but anyone who feels frustrated with their career or life in general will benefit from reading this book.

The Happy Student bookDaniel Wong began writing The Happy Student while he was a college student. He uses his own experience of being a successful student who continued to strive for better grades and bigger accomplishments while still feeling like a failure. He explains that he isn’t a teacher, psychologist or an expert, but he wants to share his end pursuit of finding happiness.

The book begins with a short autobiography of Daniel Wong, which is a great read that helps you get a peak inside his life experiences and his thoughts. The rest of the book is broken up into five steps (chapters) to assist you on your path to fulfillment. Wong includes meaningful quotes throughout these chapters and many “why” questions that empower you to assess yourself. (Be sure to read the Epilogue and Appendix.)

Wong’s ability to write succinctly yet profoundly is not often seen.  His  exercises throughout the book and his “Reflection Questions” at the end of each chapter empower you to reflect upon the work you are doing. Although this may be seen as one of many self-help books, The Happy Student: 5 Steps to Academic Fulfillment and Success, is one that stands alone.  I highly recommend it.

I’m excited to be able to share The Happy Student through a giveaway. There will be 3 winners of a new copy of this incredible book. Please enter by using the Rafflecopter form:
