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.GET YOUR FREE 15-PAGE PREVIEW

"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!!"
"I love the simplicity of the book. Beautiful, perfectly precise and to the point. I've laughed out loud several times flicking through it and how great to have a reminder to laugh at yourself on a regular basis!"
Find your buttons, laugh at your inner joke, and be warmly provoked to change for the better. If you are prepared to see the funny side of how you may be sabotaging your life, read on. We hope the provocative suggestions may elicit a wake-up call or perhaps jolt you into realising change is easier than you think.
