Happiness in Quantum Leaps seeks to help readers bring together their mind, body, and spirit in order to find peace and happiness. There are some concrete exercises suggested to help achieve this. For example, I liked the commitment chart the author notes on page 260, which seems to be a good way to determine if you are doing things that will bring forth positive energy in all areas. Plus, I think the idea of turning off the news, especially when it is negative, is also a good idea. Simply finding something to do that makes you laugh or relax is a better idea. As this book points out, getting rid of negative energy will help you increase your flow of positive energy and allow you to become one with God or the universe.
This book is probably best suited to those who consider themselves Christians. The author does mention that anyone can follow her path to happiness, but she mostly relies on numerous Bible verses from the King James edition to illustrate her beliefs and views. I liked her overall message that more people should concentrate on finding happiness by focusing on their inner world rather than on the external world. I enjoyed the chapter entitled “Purpose,” which gave some helpful tips about writing down goals and making short- and long-term plans to change your life. I also appreciate the useful reading list she included at the end of the book.
However, I was bothered by the numerous grammatical errors throughout the book, and I found a lot of repetition and long, rambling sentences that affected the flow of reading for me. A good editor would have been an asset to this work and would have helped make it sound much more polished and professional. Also, at times the author seemed angry at scientists, doctors, and schools. I didn’t think the emotional tone helped get across the positive tone and energy she was aiming for in those parts of the book. This is another area where an editor could be useful.
I did enjoy getting to know about the author and her reasons for wanting to write this book. All in all, the message to practice unconditional love and positively focus on the moment to bring mind, body, and spirit into alignment is a message that I find essential. Moreover, it could help readers to find more peace in their day-to-day lives.
