Reviews

Praise for Spontaneous Happiness

"A comprehensive roadmap for the prized path to true happiness...Weil provides sensible, accessible advice...Immensely beneficial information for those seeking a self-galvanized life lift."--Kirkus Reviews
"Weil's program aims for 'positive emotionality'-a far better destination than the roller-coaster ride between bliss and despair. This is more than a New Age prescription for contentment. Weil's revelations and insights from his own lifelong battle with depression lift this guide from a hip and clinical 'how to' to a generous and heartfelt 'here's how.'"--Publishers Weekly
"If you use this book as a tool to help you change your life, you might be surprised by what it can do for you."--Yahoo! Voices
"Spontaneous Happiness spells out some amazing guidelines on becoming a healthy individual."--Seattle Post Intelligencer
"Like all of his books, Spontaneous Happiness is a refreshing combination of clarity, science and practical wisdom. But it's also warm and, indeed, personal."--iVillage
"Weil...offers a new approach to thinking about happiness. The case studies and practical guidance here can help readers make life-changing decisions."--Library Journal
"Dr. Andrew Weil continues his multi-decade journey to educate the American public as to the importance of natural health and healing. This book should be required reading for all health practitioners and all people interested in optimal health."--Richard Carmona, MD, MPH, FACS, seventeenth Surgeon General of the United States
"Weil's revolutionary book casts a critical eye on modern medicine, examining the very serious risks that medicine can carry....Those who seek to understand the ramifications of overmedicating, are interested in the impact of modern medicine, or want to learn alternative therapies and how to take an active role in their health care will appreciate this book."--Library Journal

"Weil, who may be the nation's foremost advocate for integrative medicine...meticulously explains why the multitude of medicines prescribed in America is problematic....In all, a sensible approach to reducing what Weil correctly identifies as our 'excessive reliance on medication.'"--Booklist
