Book Review: Simple Secrets to a Happy Life

I love Luci Swindoll. I love how down-to-earth she is, I love how she tells stories, and I love her straightforwardness. All of these are on prominent display in her new book "Simple Secrets to a Happy Life".

The book itself is broken down into 5 sections with 10 chapters each for a total of 50 "simple secrets". The chapters are short which made them a quick read and easy to devour multiple chapters at a time. The organization was great and I could really see how the secrets grouped together. Since each chapter is its own "secret" though sometimes it could feel a little disjointed reading too many back to back. But all the advice was eminently practical and useful.

Luci's charm and wit is on full display here. It's like sitting down to a cup of coffee with her as she passes her wisdom down. I also love that her tips span the generations. Some may be more relevant to a younger or older crowd but every secret has something to say to people of all ages.

So pick up a copy and have your own coffee date with Luci and find out some of her simple secrets to a happy life!

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars!

Soli Deo Gloria,

Side note: The most annoying thing about this whole process of reviewing an ebook was the disclaimer that BookSneeze feels the need to put at the beginning of every chapter, making sure I know not to share the book since it was provided specifically for me for review. When chapters are this short, you get the picture after the first 10 times...having the disclaimer 50 times was a bit of overkill in my opinion. But that has nothing to do with the actual book, just with the ebook format from BookSneeze.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the BookSneeze®.com book review bloggers program. I was not required to write a positive review.
