    In the conclusion of the book, one of Jennifer L. Taitz?s friends tells her, ?You didn?t really write a book on being single, you wrote about advances in living well.? It?s the strength of the book, and as many other reviews have mentioned, makes it accessible to single and c...

    This book has some valuable information and is written in a very compassionate way. I didn?t feel like there was very much in it that was new to me, however. ...

    The title reminds me of those ?how to have a bikini body memes:? Have a body. Wear a bikini. But happiness is a little more complex than that (maybe), and this is a really good guide to navigating uncertainties in life mindfully? specifically in the context of being single and...

    It?s more of an amazing life advice book with a flavor of singledom. I love it. She used a massive amount of research and on how to live better through mindfulness and adjusting thought patterns. I?d recommend it to everyone. ...

    Guess what, being single isn't painful, being invalidated by those "well meaning" people is. I don't find a lot of new things in this book as I have been practicing the exercises (mindfulness, following your values, etc) without knowing some are scientific in a way, but it feels gr...

    This was the perfect book for me to read right now as I try to learn how to be single and happy. This book gave me some practical, solid advice about how to do that. My only quibble with it is that it is written for a female audience so all the advice is written strictly for them. I wo...

    Full disclosure...I got about halfway through this book and was bored, so I gave it up. Most of the time, I?m not unhappy to be single, but I figured a little self-development couldn?t hurt and this book got good reviews. But it was just her telling story after story about her pati...

    Despite its limited (and rather terrible) title, this book offers a number of helpful points for improving your quality of life-- whether you are in a relationship currently or not. I love its no-nonsense, science-based approached to the squishy topics of self-worth and "happiness." Fo...

    I think "How to Be Happy" would be a more accurate title for this book. Taitz explains science-backed tools for creating a better life for oneself, whether or not you're in a relationship. I'd recommend this book for anyone who is stuck in negative thought cycles or is generally unhapp...

    I found this book difficult to read at times because I often had to put it down because it was depressing. I did like some of the research elements such as the tendency of people to overestimate how much marriage will elevate their mood. However the statistics and anecdotes of people b...

    This is a great book that focuses on DBT and mindfulness which are excellent. It's a great way to feel better about your situation. ...

    This book should be given to every woman upon high school graduation. Like the author, I also forged ahead with a career with the goal of always being able to support myself. But I also wanted love and marriage and had it for 21 years...until I didn't. I especially like how Taitz incor...

    3.5 stars. This is a good book for anyone looking to be happier in life and more comfortable with themself. Yes, the author presents most of this for the perspective of a single female who wants to be in a relationship, but isn?t. However, anyone of any gender or relationship status ...

    This book is not just for single people. Anyone that wants to practice mindfulness or just live well should read this book. It also has the wonderful bonus of suggesting other books for more depth. ...

    I know-the title has my friend wondering... but this book is for anyone who sometimes struggles with negative thoughts, strays from her true ideals, or just wants to practice the art of calming. I really liked the author?s tone, her warmth and her self-disclosures. I recommend this t...

    The book is much better than the title might suggest. More a book about living well, by your values, and not letting our own mental judgements get in the way of ourselves. ...

    I had heard of mindfulness before, but this book was my first real introduction to it. A lot of it is basic stuff that seems obvious once you stop to think about it (like, figuring out what you value, and then living according to those values; or realizing that your unexamined thoughts...

    More of a 3.5 because the first chapter kept referencing later chapters which made it annoying. Contains good therapy-based exercises/concepts to apply during difficult periods in life to help yourself live better. ...

    This is my second time listening to this book and I have ordered a physical copy for the exercises and practices within. This book is more of a well being book that incorporates mindfulness, so you don?t have to be single to benefit from what she suggests. I think I can apply this bo...

    I highlighted 53 passages in this book, if that tells you anything ;-) the author is a therapist and was single for a long time - highly recommend this book for single women looking to embrace their state in life more and have a healthier (and happier) outlook/mindset. ...

    The author really mirrored the way you may feel and gave great examples of others and how they utilized different techniques to be more independent and less anxious about doing so. ...

    This book offers a wealth of wisdom, not just for singles, but for anyone in the pursuit of inner peace and lasting joy. I was a psychology major in college but returned most of what I learnt to my professors after entering the corporate workforce, and I'm glad to have found this book ...

    Anyone who knows me well knows I tend to scoff at self help books. I often find them fruity?if well intentioned. I took a chance on this book in a moment of lonely desperation and I am very glad I did. How to be Single and Happy is a comprehensive guide to finding and maintaining ...

    Whether you are single or not, this research-based book discusses important aspects of womanhood and singlehood. From why are women socio-culturally and biologically programmed to seek a partner, to how to resist those urges and not settle for a less than ideal partner, to how to becom...

    4.5- this is an awesome book for anyone to read, regardless of his/her relationship status. Although it talks about relationships a lot, the focus is more on living well and being happy with who you are, how to build a life that fulfills you. Some of the suggestions/techniques are more...

    An excellent self-help book that is accessible to all readers. Its title is a bit of a misnomer - it could read simply, "How to be Happy" as the strategies decscribed are effective across the spectrum of life experiences. The author, a PsyD with expertise in CBT and other evidence-base...

    Pros: 1. The book is based on the mindfulness and acceptance and commitment branch of science based psychology. It?s filled with wisdom based on the principles of ACT,DBT and mindful living. 2. The author writes honestly, not shying away from moments of vulnerability, and hence ma...
