“Refreshing, practical, honest. These words are for Britt as an author and for this book, which is a powerful nudge and great resource for anyone who wants to be happier.”–Nataly Kogan, Co-founder & Chief Happiness Officer at Happier, Inc.
“A surprisingly blunt look at the reality we are all living. We all crave to be happier, but few books lay out the hardships, sacrifices and self determination it takes to actually achieve it. A simple step-by-step guide this book isn’t, but an honest guide to getting started with a happier life it is!”–C.C. Chapman, Author of Amazing Things Will Happen

“Britt has done an amazing job of defining happiness and offering several routes for the journey. I hadn’t gotten five pages into the introduction before I had a digital sticky note of quotes and ideas running down the page! Her writing is clear and thought provoking – if you’ve ever wondered why you weren’t satisfied with your life, you’ll find this a worthwhile read.”–Kirsten Simmons, Author of The Productivity Ecosystem
“I’ve read tons of happiness books, including the recent super popular ones. What I felt was missing in the other books I read, but FOUND in The Amateur’s Guide was honesty. Honest sharing of the author’s own real and personal struggles, suggestions on finding happiness in our every-day that didn’t feel preachy and the most important piece? When the author realized that happiness wasn’t a goal to reach with an end, but (as the title suggests) an ongoing pursuit.
Filled with easy-to-read conversation-like writing, sprinkled with quotes and valuable research, this book will set you on the road to your own pursuit of happiness.”–Naomi Hattaway, Amazon Review
