    If you’re looking for a well-written bit of philosophy on life, happiness, and change I recommend this book. The style is conversational, honest, and there are no campy solutions and affirmations. I stumbled onto Kelly’s work by fortunate accident and have enjoyed reading his conversational, realistic, approach to “being true to yourself.” As the title promises, Kelly posits there are nine lessons for enduring happiness – and each lesson centers on self and our perceptions. Each chapter also ends with a lesson for being yourself and how to apply the message of the chapter.

    Just finished this wonderful book on my Kindell. I plan to get several copies for Christmas so that people can begin their New Year’s on a high note. His insights were like wearing new glasses in that it helped me see the world through different lenses. I really liked how each chapter recapped how to incorporate lesson into your daily life.. Easy to understand with yet had depth. This is my favorite of his books so far.

    Matthew Kelly is hands up or down better than Dr. Phil. His writing is inspirational for any age. Everyone I turn on to his writings is amazed and can’t get the next book quick enough. Try one and you will end up wanting to read them all.

    I’ve read similar books before but was unable to practice the advice given. However, I was able to implement some of the advice given in Matthew Kelly’s book. I especially liked his advice, where he asked people to do what they’re passionate about, even just part-time, if it’s not practical for them to quit their job to do it full-time. I did just that, and now I feel much more fulfilled. Thanks Matt.

    First exposure to M.K. Easy read and very enlightening on a very sound principle – Being the Best YOU that you can be.

    I never heard of Matthew Kelly until my sister loaned me a CD of “The Seven Levels of Intimacy”. I was immediately drawn to his way of making happiness seem so attainable and his great sense of humor. The next day I purchase this book. It is truly wonderful! I find that my life has actually changed because of it. And to tell you the truth, I wasn’t expecting that! I think if you are looking for a way to make yourself a better person, this book gives you a good mirror to place before you. It is almost like have a school text book that gives you step by step instructions on being honest about who you are. The further you read the more it challenges you to pull yourself up the ladder of “Being the Best Version of Yourself”. I like the fact that Matthew presents a picture that is full of hope. A better life begins now with the good decisions we make now…and it is true! I’m thankful Matthew chose to share his feelings with the world because we can all use the extra push in the right direction!

    I have read (and benefited) from many of the the Self-Improvement, Self -Help books on the market…. Kelly has a unique, yet effective style that identifies the issues (obstacles), and more importantly gives specifics to address and overcome them. I read Perfectly Yourself, and followed up by purchasing and reading Mr. Kelly’s other two efforts…. they were both of the same quality as Perfectly Yourself, if you have given up on the Self Help industry, you owe it to yourself to give the above title a try, I was impressed. (And as an aside, I have never met the author)

    Oh, my God, I love this audio book; the author is so good at helping you overcome yourself doubt, self hatred, and problems with others. I can genuinely said that I am glad I bought this audio book because it help me understand life from a perspective I never knew or thought about before, teach me about my own faults and mistakes that have cause me to be unhappy and unsuccessful; also the manner in which he says things is like music to my ears, I am so in love with this audio book. The one main important thing that I can say about this book is that for once in my life I can understand why I always felt bad or uncomfortable about some aspects in my life, but could not pinpoint the cause or reason, now I know. Recommend for you to buy 200%.
