Disappointing

Just my opinion, but it feels like they had enough material for a 30 minute seminar here or a magazine article and decided to stretch it into a book. You have to wait patiently for a long time before the author starts giving ideas about how to actually "hack mind happiness" and then all of their hacking ideas are just concepts that are basic. I didn't learn anything new, or any new spin, or any new way to apply techniques.

To be fair, there are some techniques in this book for gaining better control of your own mind. And to be fair, I gave up with two hours to go. So maybe the true innovative techniques were revealed in the end. And maybe this book will help other people. But I have personally gained a lot more from books that get to the heart of the matter more quickly.

Insightful and powerful

I'm not normally much for self help books, but I came across Sean's videos on TikTok and thought I'd give it a try. I'm really glad I did. This book is a fantastic journey into how your mind actually works, and has easy to utilize and effective tips for making your mind function better. It's worth reading - I've already gotten a lot that helps with my PTSD.

I finally understand

I LOVED this book! I just finished and will be listening to it again in addition to getting the next one. The personal stories are wonderful. And understanding myself and others......Wow. I am already happier and looking forward to much more happiness in my life. This book I will enjoy giving as a gift to a few people I already have in mind. Thank you.

Life changing!!!!

This book is incredible!
I found this book because of a podcast that I heard where Sean Webb was being interviewed. I’ve been wanting to read a book that would explain how my mind works and I’m so glad I found this. I’m definitely going to read it over and over to make sure I can effectively pass on this knowledge to everyone I know because it’s changed the way I see everything and I feel like I now understand the “why” behind every crazy thing that happens in this world.
This book is a must read for all.
If you find swearing offensive, just promise me you’ll get through the first few chapters to the mind hacks, so that you can hack your offence and get over it, because it will be well worth it.

meh

i was already very familiar with the basic concepts that the author broke down into the most basic bite size pieces imaginable, so I didn't get much out of the book that I personally considered worthwhile. if you're new to changing your thoughts to change your feelings, have difficulty understanding that concept or are skeptical that it's even possible, and require scientific data and very in-depth explanations to back it all up, this book is probably for you.

A must read/listen

This book gives you real talk info on how to look into yourself and your feelings. It gives you understanding into why you are the way you are. I had some "Aha" moments as well as some "I kind of do some of this stuff already". Definitely gives you a place to start from for understanding yourself better. I wish they would teach this in school so kids could grow up less broken.

Also known as meditation

This info isn't anything new. i was hoping for better tools or methods on how to keep my mind focused and happy. There is a lot of hindu philosophy regurgitated in stories about his personal life attempted in corny humor that became annoying towards the end. Great for a newbie trying to figure out how to control your mind, a skip if your into this stuff already.

almost returned this book.

if you are new to meditation and are just starting stuff like that then this book may help. for me it had a couple interesting things but mostly he really stretched the book out with stories that are pointless. 100% not reading 2nd book.

A must get for your {Self} and a others

I'm not a prolific reader so the audio book was great.
For my mind, remembering and placing the abbreviations was a bit tricky (that's just my mind and the way it works).
So I've listened to this volume several times and no doubt I'll be back to listen to it again.
But first, Volume 2 👍

I'd love. a full emersion into this.

highly recommended, and interesting

It uses wester science to explain eastern wisdom in plain language. Which is pretty amazing.
It gives you some simple things to practice that anyone can benefit from.
I'm on to the next volume for sure.

Everyone in the world needs to read this.

I have read/listened to a lot of books on happiness, the brain, self discovery, self improvement etc and none of them explain it as well as this one. I have never left a review for anything online and I’m 39 so that says a lot. I literally tell everyone I come in contact with to read this book! I feel if everyone did this world would be an amazing place. On to volume 2, can’t wait!!

Perfect

Amazing book. Sean has a way of explaining the mechanisms that have always eluded me with other spiritual practices and self help titles, in a practical, helpful fun way. I will recommend this book to everyone I know. Thank you Sean

Hacking the Mind to its Happiest

Engaging, easy to listen to, very well spoken. Time to practice and put it to action! Are you trying to figure out what's going on upstairs? This book WILL set you on the path to a happier you.

I've been on the path of breaking a mould I created during my life, I've slowly been searching and engaging on many directions of why why WHY!

Then I found Mind Hacking Happiness

This book is a really good pick me up, Sean reads and explains his contexts and examples (of others and his own). Empowering and surprisingly relatable.

Now I admit I've made my ego, my shadow self available for hacking, made my younger version of self feel safe to know others have answers I do not.

So where I see the book, this Audio book fitting perfectly into your schedule is traffic, late night restlessness, needing to get OUT of your mind ( what better way out than getting deeper into your mind?) and at your own pace.
I bindge listened to both Vol 1 and Vol 2. and currently listening to Vol 1 AGAIN.
I'm not saying to binge out on the material, definitely take it at your own pace, pause, revisit, ENJOY!
