David, I have to tell you that reading your book (which I finally finished 2 weeks ago ;-) became such an awesome part of my Sunday morning ritual over the last few months.

I would wake up in the morning, make a cup of tea, open my blinds and windows and get back into bed and read your book. It was great to read and I will read it over and over again...until maybe forever. What it contains is something that I would like to imprint in my brain and never forget…
~ Melinda Bekker, SA


I find the book is very readable and helpful, and I wonder if you have any plan to translate it into Chinese and publish it in China. I am sure that it will have more readers and help more people in need over there.

In his new book, Your Life Manual - Practical Steps to Genuine Happiness, David Ambrose asks, "Why not be happy?" It's a simple enough question with an obvious answer but the fact that there is more to it than simply having the desire, is the thrust of this well written instruction manual on creating genuine happiness.

In part one, the author explains that a philosophy based on love, peace, freedom and harmony will ultimately lead to happiness but it has to start with you and me. More and more we are discovering that everyone and everything is interconnected. 'What hurts me hurts you. What heals me heals you.'

Part two offers the reader ideas to help create a foundation for a practical way to apply these principles in our lives. Adopting ideas like the belief in the absolute right to love, peace, freedom, harmony and happiness for everyone, striving for balance in our lives, understanding and respecting the fact that everything we do, say or think has consequences and that integrity, honesty, acceptance and forgiveness are absolutely necessary to create and sustain happiness in our lives, are some of the concepts offered that will help to create that foundation.

The transformation and how we get there is discussed in part three. Ambrose takes us step by step through a number of practical exercises and in each step, he explains physical and psychological benefits of deep breathing, solitude and creating a time frame each day to practice the various lessons.

A series of articles in part four is presented for our illumination and provocation. "Thinking about things is an enriching process." The author refers to such 'things' as chaos, miracles and magic, the role of women, mind power vs. prayer, the healing mind, and chaos, karma and spirituality. A series of affirmations and a suggestion list appear in appendixes A and B.

Ultimately, Your LIfe Manual - Practical Steps to Genuine Happiness by David Ambrose is a skillfully written, straightforward pathway to self-awareness with the understanding that we each have a responsibility to ourselves and to the rest of the world to become engaged with all creation through love, peace, freedom, and harmony. This path of self-discovery is also a path to genuine happiness.

I have read and recommend a wonderful book to you. It is Your Life Manual, Practical Steps to Genuine Happiness by David Ambrose. I have spoken to David who is doing an important job in spreading a better understanding of happiness to everyone. David is a unique person who will be formally teaching happiness in the near future.

This book will help you learn to stop sabotaging yourself. David will introduce you to a practical philosophy for living. You will find out how a solid foundation guides you towards happiness. David will show you the difference between transitory and real happiness. He will help you discover the things that make you really happy. So take charge of your mind and your life and change the world around you. Why not be happy! Read this book.

The following quotes are from Your Like Manual, Practical Steps to Genuine Happiness:

"Taking the first step - making the decision to improve your lot is hugely important and sets you on the road to the happiness you desire."

"Don't waste time allowing things to frustrate you. Your energy is better spent on something more constructive. Remember, accepting reality does not mean condoning it."

"It all boils down to choices. What matters most at this moment takes priority. To take complete responsibility for our lives requires taking responsibility for all our choices, even those we prefer to disown."

"Your response to each thing that happens in your life determines whether you grow and flourish, or decline and flounder. Whether perceived as good or bad, each thing that happens in our lives is important, necessary, and provides lessons for us. We choose whether learn from each experience or not. We further choose whether it will have a positive or negative effect on the rest of our lives."

"Love is crucial to happiness. Without the giving component of love, any feeling of happiness will be a shallow imitation of true happiness. Giving love makes us happy. It is by giving love that we receive love. Receiving love makes us feel complete."

You shouldn't buy it just because it's a good read, which it is; but because it has things you NEED to know about making happiness happen in your life! A fabulous read.

I first have to confess that I liked this book so much when I read the manuscript that I eagerly accepted David Ambrose's suggestion that I write the foreword for the book.

I whole-heartedly recommend this book to everyone who has found being happy in life to have eluded them. David provides the read with the information so many people have been searching for, a simple manual for happiness! I am especially flattered because David dedicated a chapter to my thesis that "All Feelings are Good" from my own book, The Secret Language of Feelings (see Chapter 22).

I think you will also enjoy reading this book because it is not one of those complicated philosophical tomes that will put you to sleep before you get anything out of it. In fact most of the chapters in this book are less than four of five pages long. Get it, read it, do it and be happier. What more could anyone want from a book?
