“My son was a very ill-behaved child in school and at home, and was getting very bad grades.  The school psychiatrist put him on Ritalin.  He never got better and never felt well from the drug.  Then one day I found a Way to Happiness book at a flea market.  I read it and loved it.  My son started reading it every day and loved it, also.  To make a long story short, my son is now 12 years old and through reading the book he decided that he was worth very much as a human being and didn’t need a drug to be good.  We got the doctor to wean him off Ritalin successfully.  He is now very well behaved, loves life and is getting As and Bs in school.  He attributes it all to The Way to Happiness.” —Mother, Massachusetts

“After reading The Way to Happiness book I have come to the conclusion that there are three necessary items which man must have in order to obtain happiness.  These three items are a good environment, a moral and ethical code, and a feeling of self-worth.” —Emily

“I decided to write your Foundation and request copies of your booklets simply because I have read it and I believe in the principles which your booklet discusses.  The twenty-one precepts are truly pertinent to our lifestyles today and I believe that many of our guests feel the same way about your publication as I did upon reading it.  Also, interesting analogy…that is, comparing life to a high-speed road and those who wish happiness need to know where the edges are!” —Department Coordinator, Resort Hotel

“My cousin and I were very close when I was a teenager. But she was murdered by a drug pusher.  If I’d known about The Way to Happiness then, Phyllis would still be alive.  While it’s too late to bring her back, I know there are a lot of other Phyllises out there.  Don’t wait until it’s too late to help the people you love.  I’ve seen this book turn lives around. It works!” —S.H.

“By changing the office culture, I knew we could address and stem employee turnover and that larger customers would no longer feel and experience the constant change of Account Executives and they too would become settled.  The Way to Happiness initiative worked better than we expected.  Within a year we had reduced our employee turnover from 35 percent to 15 percent and our customer turnover from 25 percent to 10 percent.” —Insurance Executive
