    1. According to the author, there are 13 triggers to happiness and there is a chapter dedicated to each one:1. Anticipation2. Smile!3. Service4. Financial savvy5. Gratitude6,. Connection7. Flow8. Play9. Relaxation10. Winning words11. Movement12. Savoring13. PurposeI liked the writing style it was friendly and conversational. The author knows her stuff and has done research. She is very religious, though, and there are lots of quotes from the Bible and references to God. I'm not religious so I skip [...]


    2. I was given a free copy of this book for my review and honest opinion. What a thought provoking book! Why are women less happy than 40 years ago? Has life changed so much in such a short space of time? The answer is yes. We can do more and we want more, but does that help women to lead a happier life? We lead lives that are challenging, full and at times overwhelming as we attempt to be wives, mothers, workers, and individuals. Ms. Burton's aim in this book is to help today's women work out how [...]


    3. I received this as an ARC from NetGalley.I really enjoyed this book! Burton suggests that happiness is the result of 13 different triggers. Readers take the Happy Woman Test at happywomentest to find out what their Top 3 "Personal Triggers" and their Bottom 3 "Power Triggers" are. Your maximum Happiness Quotient is out of 100 points. Your Personal Triggers are things that come to you naturally that boost your happiness and your Power Triggers are ones that you neglect which can boost your happin [...]


    4. If you are looking for a book that will give you many great practical suggestions for improving your own happiness without getting too deeply bogged down in psychological theory concerning happiness and achieving it, particularly addressed to women, then this is the book for you. I found it easy to read in one night, yet I tabbed a number of pages to come back to use as a reference for both myself and others in both my own coaching practices and personal life. Valorie Burton has a gentle but hon [...]


    5. Valorie Burton gets to the crux of why women aren't as happy as we could be. The book delves into the question of why women forty years ago scored statistically higher on measured happiness charts. The answer she puts forth, after interviewing ladies from all walks of life, is revealing and very touching. It's simply the feminist 'happy' myth that we can have it all.She quotes statistics which show that feminine happiness has been declining since the early 1970s, which is about the last time in [...]


    6. I received a free copy of this book through First Reads. Burton has some good points about how to make steps toward doing things to be happier. There's nothing groundbreaking in it, but I read a very short bit each day for several weeks, took her points, and mindfully tried to make some changes.However, many things that she hinted at in previous chapters came out blatantly in the chapter about Financial Savvy. Yes, live below your means, don't become a shopaholic, etc. But then she threatens th [...]


    7. This is a very practical book. As Valorie says, happiness is a skill, and she gives us the tools to be more skilled at it. Some of her triggers were familiar to me, such as service and gratitude. Some surprised me, like the aim to live below 75 percent of your income. Some were new to me, like flow and savor. She has good, practical suggestions as to how to activate the triggers in your life. She has also included some very good discussion starters and/or thoughts for your own reflection. this w [...]


    8. This book starts with the question "Why are women less happy than 40 years ago, while men are actually happier?" I don't think this book answers the "why?" of that question but instead helps the reader figure out the "how" to be happier in their life, regardless of their circumstances. To this end, Ms. Burton lists 13 "happiness triggers"---skills that can be practiced to produce more happiness in one's life: anticipation, smile, service, financial savvy, gratitude, connection, flow, play, relax [...]


    9. This book was a GoodReads Giveaway Book, and I thank the givers very much.This slim volume is to be read slowly and savored. It should be read with a pencil, pen, or highlighter in hand to mark special passages or write notes to oneself in the margin. This is a book that can be used as a workbook to attain happiness and satisfaction in our life. And it should be read more than once.I know that's a huge claim to make, but if one looks at the hundreds of books on "Happiness" that are being offered [...]


    10. This is my first ever self-help book and I'm really glad and satisfied with it. I liked how Valorie Burton wrote this book. It's short, simple and yet very straightforward; but I was able to savor every Happiness Trigger. It allowed me to evaluate myself and realize my situation on my own, without the pressure of a certain list of to-dos for me to be happy with my life. I liked how she allowed me to relate to the book in my own unique way. I also loved the examples she mentioned in the book, fro [...]


    11. Full disclosure-- I won this book via a First Reads with agreement to review it. I really like this author. I once read her book, How Did I Get So Busy and I LOVED IT!!! I really still benefit from some of the things I learned in that one. I was interested in this book just based on that experience/book. In this book Valerie shows that though women have much more, they are less happy that they were 40 years ago, as a group. She discusses why this is, and what women can do about it. She gives re [...]


    12. **I received this book as a Good reads First Read Winner**I absolutely love this book. Told with a Christian basis, it is definitely not a stereotypical how to be happy book. It examines what key areas are needed to live a happy fulfilled life (based on YOU, not what someone else thinks) and includes a quiz to see where your strengths are (the book calls them triggers) and which areas you need to work on. It also includes conversation starters to get you talking with those around you about 'happ [...]


    13. I received an ARC of this book in exchange for a review. For folks who like this type of work, I actually think Burton will resonate. This is a little off the path of what I usually read and I didn't find a renewed love for the self-help genre.I did like that Burton incorporated faith and the test was pretty interesting. Overall, if you've read one of these personality/help books, I think you've read them all though.Didn't quite get through it, but again, if this type of thing normally appeals i [...]


    14. I've learned to recognize, appreciate and celebrate all success big and small and I learned to be content in all situations good & bad but more importantly be content with myself flaws & all as long as I continue to progressGROWTH! That's definitely what led to my happiness. This book describes how I try to live my life always seeing the glass half full I realize it's an innate characteristic. I can't be any other way :)


    15. This was a really good read that made for great conversation with some like-minded ladies. There are some tips that I picked up that I am already using. I would recommend this book to any woman who doesn't like most self-help books, because the author doesn't write from the premise of fixing something that's wrong with you. She writes about enhancing what is already going well and working with the life you have, instead of trying to "fix" it. Totally the opposite of Iyanla, lol


    16. I received this book from Giveaways. Thanks so much to Harvest House, the publisher, and !I enjoy reading this type of "Self Help" book, similar the The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin. I found the author's conversational and familiar style comforting, like talking with a close friend. The suggestions presented are great and definitely line up with my life experience. Easy to read and very helpful.


    17. This book was just the right amount of personal stories, case stories and studies. Nothing overwhelmed one another. The advise was clear and there were great steps laid out for expanding each trigger. However, the title doesn't say "Straight Christian Women" and it should. I felt a disconnect from the reality that not all relationships are straight and that bothered me.


    18. I won this book in a giveaway.It was okay. It has interesting advice for women and their goals. I might apply some of the advice to my life. I wish the introduction was longer and better explained "happiness triggers" and how to better use or develop them. There was a lot of references to God, so your mileage with the advice may vary. The book seems too vague and scattershot.


    19. "Sometimes it is not a matter of whether a man can provide, but whether h can provide at the level he imagines a woman expects. If he perceives he cannot please you at the level of his ability to provide, he may choose not to pursue you. I emphasize the word "perceives" because often what a man perceives as your expectation may not actually be your expectation." -Valorie Burton


    20. An excellent guidance book for women. Well written and has an easy flow. I enjoyed this book so much that I am considering this as a gift option for women that I know. I am looking forward to doing the "activate" tasks and incorporating some changes.


    21. I received this book for review purposes. Very interesting information, thought-provoking and certainly contains much food-for-thought for conversation starters. The author has a very enjoyable writing style so it was a pleasure to read.


    22. This was such a good encouraging book. It opened my eyes to so many possibilities and I really like the question in the end of the book. I even wrote it down and have it on my mirror. It really makes you think. Thank you, Valorie, you are the best. Alma Garza


    23. Great, encouraging book. Includes suggestions for triggering more happiness in your life. Would make a great group read - book group, Sunday school class, etc.


    24. Loved this book and can't wait to read more from Ms. Burton. This book made me rethink my definition of "happiness" and reflect on ways that I can do this thing called Life better. Enjoyable read,


    25. It was really helpful to take the Happiness Trigger quiz on-line to see which triggers you naturally do and which ones you could use some work building.


    26. Received from NetGalley for review.An inspirational author who provides transformational advice. Valerie breaks it down into "triggers" for happiness. Easy to follow recommendations for improving happiness. All the the advances over the years with technology and science doesn't change the basic formula for happiness.


    27. Good advice/tools/tips about making YOUR OWN happiness a priority everyday! I enjoyed the information about the happiness triggers and I did go online to take the free assessment/quiz. I learned things about myself and how to start putting some new things in place to cultivate more happiness in my own life.



    28. This was a GoodReads Giveaway Book. I enjoyed this book. I wasn't sure what to expect when I received it, but it had a lot of good material to think about. I especially liked the info about counteracting negativity and also the notion of happiness triggers that can be worked on specifically. Each chapter gave good tips at the end too.


    29. Valerie was very candid and clear through her guide to choosing happiness. Solid read. I am working on my happiness goals.
