Probably the best way to describe the author of this book is to say that he is “an average, everyday kind of guy”. He does not hold any advanced degrees or grand spiritual credentials. Randy Petersen was quietly pulled from a background in business into his current spiritual avocation. His business background is in retail general management and he is the co-founder of Alta Labs, a company that produces and markets innovative natural remedies. Their flagship product "Motioneaze" is an all natural motion sickness remedy that can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Kmart, Bass Pro Shops and other fine retailers.

If you are searching for a book to help strengthen your relationship with God, your family, and yourself, this is a must read! I couldn't put this book down. This book helped me know without a doubt, there are angels watching over us and helping us in all we do.
There were specific passages I connected with very personally. I too lost my father and for many years felt empty. But I knew he was there, I just didn't know how to reach him. On my own quest for spirituality I finally have peace in my life knowing there is a kind and loving God and trusting in him. This book helps you learn how to do this perfectly.
The book has an easy flow with easy steps to follow on how and where to look for ways to find true happiness. I highly recommend this book. It will enrich your life!

You know how, when you go away on vacation, there’s always a little let-down when you come back home? Sort of like “what will I look forward to now?” Well that feeling was completely gone when I finished reading The Happiness Principle by Randy Petersen.
First of all – the book itself. It’s well-written. The chapters are concise. The examples are illustrative and compelling. With charm and humor, this book impressed me to explore the everyday joys, frustrations, and sorrows of lives quietly led.
Overall, I really had a sense that “you too can do this”. There were many great examples of positive changes that felt entirely possible, even likely. Do I recommend this book? Whole-heartedly.
