The author has divided the book into three segments pondering over the overall happiness of mind ,body and soul.
The detailed study to achieve that is summarized in each of the chapter through points to ponder and points to practice .
This book is for all those who are running everyday in their lives to reach somewhere and meanwhile forgetting to provide the much needed relaxation to their minds and bodies.
These days people might focus on physical fitness but mental fitness gets neglected somehow. So this book will let you work on your spiritual being at the deeper level with practical tips.
Narration is good and language is pretty easy . I use to read it slowly , bit by bit everyday in the morning to get the much needed dose of motivation. The only thing that bothered me was the small font size . Apart from that the book is rich in content and i would definitely recommend it to everyone .
The book highlights how in today's world of technology, we are neglecting what matters the most i.e. Body, Mind And Soul and focusing more on less important things.
If you are into self-help books, grab this one and embark on the beautiful journey of mental, physical and spiritual rejuvenation.
👉Author doesn't only tell us what to do but also tells us how to do it.
👉Rather than filling up the book with theory, he has given a lot of practical techniques and ideas which we can actually implement in our lives. He has named these techniques as "Smart well-being capsules" ( SWC ).
👉He also discusses how practising these techniques has helped him gain success and happiness.
👉Language is simple, lucid and easy to understand and also beginner-friendly.
👉Narration is really well done. As Self-help often seems boring but this one flows well and I appreciate the author for this.
I immensely loved reading this book, especially because of the personal touch in the writing style.
This book is not all preach, it's the story of motivation in words and in action in the Author's life. This style of giving tips by telling stories and personal experience, alongwith motivation and good vibes imparts a feeling of warmth and care. And that's what makes the book different.
This book speaks about the importance of happiness and peace and that it's found within ourselves. It also explains the need to take care of ourselves ok physically, mentally and spiritually. And it not just explains the need of these things in our life, but also goes a step ahead and provides few exercises, tips and basically a schedule to improve ourselves.
It was a great experience reading this book and I'd urge everyone to read this book and take care of themselves.
Thanks for sending the Review copy @ashutosh_author in exchange of an honest review.
Happiness is all we want! - by Ashutosh Mishra.
The cover is simple and decent, the lenth is medium about 230 pages. The author is an MBA and a Mechanical Engineer from IIT Delhi.
In todays life, every body is busy with their own jobs, responsibilities, extra income, and various other stresses that's why is became very difficult for us to give time to ourselves, our loved ones, our mind, our body, and very important our inner self. The book ' Happiness is all we want! ' is a complete guide to get all that desired objectives that you would like to focus upon. The book is divided into three parts which further into chapters. You'll love their names that author has given -
Part 1 - The Mind or the Donkey?
Part 2 - The Body or the Donkey?
Part 3 - The Flying Horse !
The author shows the clear picture of five most important spheres of life as -
a) Health and well being
It talks about how one can de-stresses by experiencing happiness in various forms as looking at nature, meditating, praying or simply walking. How we can control our anger and detailed information about our sleep. And about calming techniques for mental well being, Yoga nidra is my favourite technique to relieve mental stress.
The book contains detailed info on Physical health, nutritional information, exercise, waking up early. It talks about peace and spiritual well being and about different types of fears, we face in our life as fear of death,or fear of old age, etc .
I have read some good self help books so far, but this book is now my favourite because it doesn't talk about on any one issue of our life but on various important topics. This is a great book and it changed my way of living in a bit desired manner. The author has brilliantly written the book with very easy narration.
Yeah definitely i HIGHLY RECOMMENDED it to everybody who wants to get a better change in their lives. And believe me after reading it you will get the same you want.
My ratings- 5/5 ⭐

The author has been a senior banker with global banks like Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank and is currently with ANZ Bank. I highly recommend this book to everyone.
An absolute must read! Happiness Is All We Want
It puts hands on these problems and highlights their effect on our lives and how they can destruct our lifestyle and happiness. Some points mentioned related to the ego are obvious. But they are ignored and not treated. I found this book point indirectly to the being in the now as a solution for many problems. Since I tried this approach before it was helpful and life-changing. The practical tips inside each chapter were good and help to simplify the solution and how to implement them into our lives. There is a wish list in chapter two, I found it realistic and, may apply to many of us (I do not want to spoil it LOL).
Part two of this book talks about the physical health and how to improve it. I am sure many will love this part more than part one since this problem is common these days. The cover and name was nice and simple and related to the content. I found few editorial mistakes. But they were minor and do not affect the material provided. Also, I found some parts not related to the subject ,so kind of felt the reading was long and slow paced. However not all the time.
Final words :
You can say that it offers solid info and highlights many realistic issues related to us. However, it did not offer a comprehensive solution to some of them. The book was easy to read and you can finish it in one day. Because the language is simple and the way the book written make it fast-paced. You will find many answers. It will help you find the problem and offer you some help. But if you want a more thorough solution, you can refer to other sources that the author has quoted.
This book gives a lot of food for thought. The section on exercise is very convicting and the part that talks about the effects on everything becoming digital is disturbing. As for the yoga section I’m not quite there, or meditation, but it was interesting to read about the different types of yoga.
I received a complimentary copy of Happiness Is All We Want by Ashutosh Mishra from the author. The views are strictly mine and provided of my own accord. This book was so in depth it took me some time to read, but you do want to take your time since there is a lot of information provided.
I recently received the book “Happiness is all we want” and enjoyed reading it. There’s joy in turning the pages of a book that is full of takeaways and actionable tips: all focused on making ourselves happy. So it was with this one.
Happiness Is All We Want! is conveniently divided into three parts, focusing on the three pillars of our existence: the mind, body, and spirit.
The book is presented in an easy-to-read format. I am a big fan of a well laid out book and this is definitely one of them.
Each chapter is formatted with an introduction, followed by the whys and the how to-s. Along the way, the author refers to tech traps and where we should draw the line. Very relevant in today’s times when we are attached to those screens of all sizes.
At the end of each chapter, there’s a summary in the form of a list of things to do and things to ponder, which I absolutely loved. There are also SWCs or Smart Wellbeing Capsule activities such as meditation as a powerful tool to strengthen the mind. There are useful links to inspiring TED talks and other resources.
While all chapters contain practical tips and activities, the final chapter has a holistic framework to help the reader turn the advice in the book into action.
At the end of the book is a convenient table outlining the SWCs mentioned in the book with page numbers and time taken to implement each one.
I've posted a detailed review on my blog. All in all, a very useful book that you can refer to from time to time.
