” Happiness ” a small nine letter word but has a very deep meaning. Every person wants to live a happy life but is sad. Everyone thinks that he/she has all troubles of life and is very sad. Actually, the person is not sad at all, it is he/she does not want to be happy. A person can get happiness even in a very small thing. The author has done a marvellous job in writing this book. The various illustrations, quotes add cherry to the cake. One should find happiness in the thing they have. If they try finding happiness in small work they do daily, trust me one can feel how much happy they are. Actually being unhappy for a long time kills the happy person. The author has very well explained that people who run after money can be rich and have a lavishing life but they won’t be living a happy life. If a person reads all these 107 chapters deeply, he will realise how happy he is. He hasn’t seen yet the cruel world.
Many people does not even know the meaning of Happiness, Simplicity and Richness. This book will answer all these words. Many people think that rich people are happy and poor ones are unhappy. But is this true. No, a big no. The author has very well explained this ascept.

I wish, ” THE HAPPINESS CODE ” changes view of many people and they realise that they are happy.
