ALMOST HAPPY BOOK

AVAILABLE MARCH 1, 2022

Reverse Psychology, a powerful psychological tool familiar to every parent, also works on adults! Find your buttons, laugh at your inner joke, and be warmly provoked to change for the better.

After 25 years clinical practice using humor and reverse psychology to provoke people to change their behaviors, Dr. Brian Kaplan and Hephzibah Kaplan have co-created an original, accessible self-improvement book that is both funny and helpful. Almost Happy launches over 114 originally-designed graphics which label archetypal behaviors, inviting readers to find their buttons and digest provocative suggestions about how to change.
Against the assault of laughter, nothing can stand.
Twain

It made me laugh out loud. Each button is a succinct and hilarious insight into this thing we call life.
I could not stop turning the next page, eager to spot myself, my friends and family in the tiny capsules of wisdom in this witty book.

I finished reading Almost Happy last night and it’s a really clear and accessible work, no nonsense and a lot of fun! It blows away all the confusion for us lay people. I’m so pleased to have met my sub selves and to know it’s perfectly normal to hear these voices! What a relief!!
