Gossips contributes to happiness. I got straightened immediately when I read this. Now, how that is possible, something I was wondering. The author advocates that gossiping is good if filters are attached and could be beneficial as well. Gossips many a times gives away some vital information which could help in self improvement, avoiding problems and mistakes and who knows some good career prospects as well. So gossiping not only helps in maintaining social circle but when used ingeniously helps in contributing in social happiness as well. Of course you have to let go of irrelevant gossips which could have negative effect as well.
Author also explains importance of communication in relationship as imperative in life. So is the requirement of action for the implementation of idea. I also loved the chapter on money. According to him, money loves to remain in circulation. So instead of hoarding money in your safe, spend it prudently. In order to make way for more money to come in your safe. But I was not much in favour of author’s opinion about marriage and sex. (more about it can be read on the blog thebookworld.org)
The book has been written in the style similar to Robin Sharma's Monk series self help book. Here Bhanu Arora has written various short stories which led to the final take away from that story. The stories served the purpose of build-up for the message. Presenting the lessons in this way made the book one interesting read but. Initially this setting seems to work. Short stories were interesting to read and lesson drawn from them were relevant to the story. But same cannot be true for all the 10 Points which forms the base of the book. The lessons which the author wants to put forward not always sync with the short story.
The aspects of life on which author concentrate in the book helps in improving the quality of life, helps in achieving small materialistic happiness. These, definitely, doesn't overall contribute to the ultimate happiness and peace of mind. In fact true happiness is above all these things.
The book starts with an experience by the author which tells the reader about the perks of socializing. It lets the reader know about the author happiest moment in life and what helped him realize the meaning of true happiness.
The author has taken the pain of pointing out ten essential points that are somewhat related to the modern day happiness . He has explained each thing with examples, which are mostly stories or life experiences of people around him. He not only gave insights on how to deal with a certain issue, he also wrote about the point of view of the one in the ordeal so as to make the reader understand and not repeat the same mistakes in life.
The book is more inclined towards the people who are probably facing the mid life crisis and has the capacity of help them, as most of the experiences are from the ones with busy work lives.

The book had a great start but the presentation was somewhat dull. The reader might lose interest and procrastinate, even though the book is of merely 132 pages.
A bit of work on the flow of the language and the book would be a rather happy read.
The points of focus mentioned are important but, the author might have given a little less importance to some things that play quite some importance for human happiness. For example, he speaks about the importance of criticism but in my point of view, the topic could have been discussed more, especially when the current generation faces a lot to sink into depression from time to time.
The book is more inclined towards a certain age group that might not entertain the ones who do not belong to the club.
The author has spoken perfectly about the things that provide material happiness but the quest for the true happiness that brings peace remains untouched even after reading the book.
