Francis Brennan is back — to spread a little happiness!
‘Life can deal us any kind of hand, good or bad. Often it’s a bit of both, and the only difference is what we make of it. That’s the subject of this book — how we handle what life throws at us and how we learn to make the most of it. In short, it’s a book about happiness.’
Full of warm and witty anecdotes, Francis Brennan shares his memories while letting us in on the secret to his success — his belief in happiness. By counting his blessings — such as his childhood, family, friendships, career, travel, spirituality, home life and public life — he outlines what matters to him and what has sustained him in life, and shows how learning to be happy is the most important gift you can give yourself.
By sharing how he has dealt with the ups and downs of life, Francis Brennan proves that happiness is something you choose, rather than something that chooses you.
