I gleaned some neat ideas to advance my own happiness, but I have to admit I skimmed some sections that didn't apply to me (e.g. "Parenthood"). Her research throughout the book is solid, and there's even a reading list if you want to do your own.As Rubin states several times, this is her project, and anyone else embarking on a similar journey will probably concentrate on different things. It got tiresome to re-re-retread some of Rubin's faults (quick to anger, nagging husband relentlessly) that I do not share myself. The sections of blog comments, while at times interesting, also felt like a way to pad the page count.Overall I'm glad I read the book but I don't think it'll come up for a reread.
