"Hi Michael,

"I hope this finds you well. We chatted many, many years ago after I read your gift to the world for the first time.

"I have passed it on to as many people as possible over the years as it has been one of the cornerstones in my life that has helped me be able to answer honestly the mundane socially awkward question “how are you” with the reply “I’m so good – there should be two of me!” and watch the reaction of the person who was expecting “I’m fine, how are you?”

"I have for as long as I can remember, considered myself blessed through good times and bad. Happiness is a deliberate attitude, one that comes with humility, kindness and tolerance and my Irish sense of humour but can fade if you and circumstances let it.

"While I still tell people that one of my bad days is still better than most others’ good ones, I have recently given the pages of “How to be Happy” a re-run in the movie theatre of my life and have found it to provide a totally different experience to that of a decade ago – hence this letter.

"At this point, I want to thank you sincerely for the many years of making my journey a happier one and for providing me with much of the insight that has made my changing of this little part of the world so much more fun for me.Kindest regards,"
- Peter Banbury, Johannesburg, South Africa

"Your book is brilliant. Thank you for your masterpiece that you are sharing with the world. Your Happy Book has blessed me and will inspire all who are touched with its magic."

"I have now had the chance to read completely "How to Be Happy and Have Fun Changing the World" all the way through. No doubt I will reread it often. It truly is a transformational book.
Thank you." - Dennis Duffy

"Thank you so much! You are an inspiration for humanity - Changed my life!!!" -Andrew Klaassen

"Thank you for writing such a wonderful book full of practical, soul lifting advices. The beauty of the book is that it is written in a very simple and straight forward way. When I read the book I felt like a father is giving advice to his children -:) Now that I finished the book I wish to read it again and again till it will become my second nature." -Munawara 

"Greetings from osaka, japan. It was a coincidence I chanced upon your website when i felt so low. I read your happy e-book in one sitting and it changed my perspective about life. Your book is a blessing to me. I am going to share it to my brother."

"I have just finished reading your "happy Book" and have been living the daily affirmation for the past 2 weeks! Your book has helped me tremendously and I have been much happier! I have/had been suffering from depression for the past 5 years... and it feels like the cloud is finally lifting! Thanks!"

"I found your book to be such an easy book to read and so inspirational. It summarizes the main points of The Secret, The Power of Intention and so many other books in a very simplistic way and makes it easy to put the message into practice. I read the entire book in less than a week. Thank you for sharing your life lessons in the Happy Book. I wish there was a part II."

"Thank you for a brilliant book Michael. I have always been keen on Zen, biology and the chaos theories, and quantum physics - you put it all together so well I sent it to folks back in England. Smiles to you,"

"Firstly, thank you for playing your part in making the world a better place! I have just finished reading your "How to be Happy" book and I very much enjoyed it. So thank you very much for writing it! You are now one of my "spiritual friends" (to use a term we both use :-) I too spend time with the likes of Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Eckhart Tolle and many others through seeking the wisdom in their writings.

"I also share that passion of self-understanding, conscious living and contributing to raising the level of peace, happiness and consciousness of myself, others and our planet. Thank you for adding to my inspiration!

"Thank you for a book that will change my life forever and ever and ever. I Am Theuns from South Africa. There are not words to say how I feel it answers all my Questions about how God put as all together.

"This coming week I have a presentation that I have to do on Health and I am going to teach the people these principals because a healthy mind contains a healthy Body. May God Bless You"

"You have done a great work for mankind in this kingdom. I’m impressed with the e-book that you’ve written. The message is coming from the higher intelligence, it is miracle.

"I have started writing book about love but there is something about your book that makes me to think and share with my friends. Let me introduce myself. I’m Shanker Raj from Kuala Lumpur ,Malaysia. I writing to inform you that you are enlightened person. Keep the energy flowing, Sir. Thank you very much for the sharing."

"Thank you for your great work. In it is great treasures of our time indeed. You are really a gift to our generation and the generation to come who will have access to your valuable materials.

"Your work has really made me to be more intellect in handling my day to day living and am trying hard to see how I can put into practical usage those points your enumerated. Thanks a lot sir, may the good Lord continue to empowered you to more of many more serviceable year to humanity. Best regards from Nigeria,"

"I downloaded your book two weeks ago, I just wanted to let you know it has changed my life already. I am dealing with all the challenges with a different attitude, I can’t say I have always been truthful for the whole time but I do think now before I respond.

"My life with my family has changed too. I say no sometimes instead of yes all the time, now I’m not resentful as I have thought through the request and answer truthfully. I hope to continue this with all my heart, and helping others is a joy too but only when I am truthfully able to do it. Then it’s a pleasure. Thank you again,"

"Thank you very much for your fantastic book."

"I wish you all the success with your book, I know it can change the world if enough people read it and practice what is written in it. All The Best,"

"Thank you Michael. Your book is fantastic and very inspiring. I work as a personal development trainer and employment coach, helping people on the borders of society move forward in their lives and realise their potential.

"Your book speaks every ounce of truth. You have done a very wonderful thing writing this. If you change one persons life that is an amazing thing, and you are changing many. Well done, and thank you again."

"This is Subhash, 62 yrs in age and I am from from Kolkata, India. I have my beautiful soul-mate Kapila and two sons and a daughter. Strangely the laws of attraction prevailed and I came across your book while browsing on the net.

"The current times are the times when I am coming out of 15 months old paralysis and since last 3-4 months, I have been living the life as per your advised affirmation but no! not 100%. It was surely an exhilerating experience reading your book at such a time.

"I surely will write these affirmations and get it nicely framed and hang it at the most proominence place in the walls of my home along with other affirmations advised by another American Dale Carnegie."

"I accidently came across your book as I was researching 'happiness and how to be happy' on Google. It caught my eye immediately. I have just finished reading it and would like to personally thank you. I thought it was perfect - simple, yet enriching and inspiring.

"I have recommended it to most people I know and will continue doing so as I also feel our world would be a much better place if everyone followed the Daily Affirmation.

"I have come to a point in my life when I felt some changes are needed. While I am nearly 100% always truthful and do my best to help others, I found it somewhat difficult to always stay positive. I'm glad to say that your book has inspired me to do just that - be positive! :)" Once again, thank you so much!

"I just finished reading your Happy Book and loved it! I've recommended it to everyone I know. I've heard people say the key to having love is loving yourself, but I never have had anyone define "how to love yourself". Now you have, and now my children and I know too. Thank you for this book, it is a TRUE GIFT!!!!

"I start and end each day with The Afirmation. It works for me, it gives me fun and fast improvements. Tomorrow it's National Compliments Day in the Netherlands....I send you an deep felt warm compliment for you and your e-book!" Have a very good day!
- Joost

"My loving wife told me one night, you need to learn how to be happy. HMMMM I thought, so I typed that phrase in Yahoo & guess what. I FOUND YOU!!! I had no idea that my huge problem was fear, I will never be able to thank you enough.

"It's a rare man like you that will walk in the kingdom of heaven, & you have given me the ability to stand up & walk with you." Thank You,

"I e-mailed last spring after reading your book, my wife & I read & study your book each night with our children, I feel there is no better way to prepare my children for lifes adventures, thanks to you my kids have a hand book for life. Thanks"

"I have been searching to find information on how to be happy. I have read a few books, surfed on the Internet for hours, but I could not understand why I make up my mind to do what the writers say, but when I face a difficult situation, I become the old me again. There is something in your book that made me feel like I can do it.

"Now I know that if I loose control, that's because of my TAPE. I can already see a difference although I am still struggling to change my old TAPE. But I am determined and I will email you if as soon as I think I am able to be always "truthful, positive, and to help others". Thank you very much

"I have just downloaded your ebook and even though I haven't finished it I felt I had to email you to say how refreshing it is to find it. I think it is great you are doing what you are doing despite what you have been through. It inspires me too.

"I have given myself a challenge just this week - to do something every day I have never done before. And it is literally changing my life in very interesting ways. I realized I needed to start again and didn't know what to do. So this is getting me to think outside what my tape has been. It is late here now so will finish your book tomorrow. It makes a lot of sense. Good luck and keep up the good work."

"I just read your book from beginning to end in one sitting...could not stop. Thank you so much! This is just what I needed to read. I struggle with happiness...and now I know why. Living by the eight words is going to change and impact my life like nothing before. I have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, and don't mean to say that this is in any way less than what I have just read. He is my everything. I believe He has blessed you with wisdom and given you the gift to share it with others. Thank you so much. I am in the process of writing a weight-loss book and plan to reference your book and so that readers can use this to change their tapes and their thinking.

"I am amazed...day before New Year's Eve and I googled "how to be happy"...and there was your link. God works in mysterious ways. 2007 will definitely be my best year ever...and it will be in no small way due to the reading of this wise advice. THANK YOU SO MUCH.

"I just have to thank you and thank God for bringing me wise counsel at this turning point...a new year on the horizon. Thank you! I pray that it will cause it to spread like wildfire and free individuals who are a slave to negativity, selfishness, and unhappiness. In reading your book, I can see that you absolutely have discovered the key. It's a piece of the puzzle I was totally missing. Thank you for sharing it so openly and honestly.

"I will continue to reread it, to practice the affirmation daily, and to put my goals in writing and read them twice a day. My life is about to change. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I am a web designer; and if there is anything I can do to assist you with your book endeavors, please do not hesitate to contact me. I am experienced in design, flash, audio, video, and pdf formatting for websites. It looks like you are pretty well set there...but as you have just done me a greater service than I can ever repay...I wanted to offer the same to you. Have a great day! I know I will! Blessings and best wishes for continued success and health."

"Your e-book has meant so much to me. Your "plan" is easy to live by, and I can really feel my approach to this life getting completely overhauled with each passing day.

"I don't know if you have ever been on Oprah before, but I wrote her an e-mail detailing just how much this has meant to my life."

"It was a great pleasure reading your book how to be happy in life with the eight words which really makes the platform. While reading itself I knew I was living a very unhappy life and the answers came from the true fact I AM ALWAYS TRUTHFUL, POSITIVE AND HELPING OTHERS.

" Thank you Michael, it is a great book and I will keep reading reading and for sure I will be a solid part to change this world. Good bless you and your family and keep you in good health to make this world a better place."

"Thank you for reminding me of what my spirit already knew! Onward evolution!"

"Thank you so much for writing your Happy Book! It really encourages my spirit that someone had the guts to write a profound (yet simple) little book that could potentially improve lives – millions of them. That’s an awesome accomplishment!

"I was sorry to read about the death of your wife. Your words about how you’re dealing with that really impressed me. Not many folks are able to really understand and articulate that when someone dies, they really haven’t left us; that instead they live on in us. I think that is the healthiest way to accept death, and it sounds like your doing ok. I hope you are able to find plenty of things to stick around for because if you can write a book like this one, you’re the kind of person I want to be around as much as possible.

"I’m a recovering drug addict (I have 10 ½ months sober as of today!). I stumbled onto your book a couple of days ago and it has given me a great new perspective on my program (AA). Your message adds a great “mind-map” element to my program, as well as a directive to be “positive” as much as possible in order to improve my performance and life, and the way to do it. In my opinion, AA could use a lot more “positive” suggestions, so I’m glad I found them in your book. I’ll be sharing the Daily Affirmation with just about everyone I can. It has such a positive feel to it that I just have to pass it on!

"I realize you’re probably really busy, but I’d love to hear back from you if you have the time. Thanks again and take care of yourself."

"I purchased Michael Anthony’s book “The Mental Keys to Improve Your Golf” and it has helped my game significantly. Michael has also written a book entitled “How to be Happy and Have Fun Changing the World.”

"It’s a quick read and is well worth your time. It’s a new slant on an old theme. No, I don’t get anything for this other than the satisfaction that I have passed on something of value to those that I value. When (not if) you read the book, you’ll probably be like me – I already know this, I’ve read this before, sure it works, but I don’t have the time right now. Just remember, we all have the time to do a small thing that can make us happy and change the world for the better.

"There is no better time than right now."

"I found your website a few weeks ago. I was feeling really down and not at all fulfilled with the life I was leading. I had nothing to complain about really, but felt that there had to be something more. So off I went on the net, searching for happiness and I found you right away. I printed the book out and put it in a binder, read it that day, brought it home so my hubby could read it and have been living by the daily affirmation 100% of the time since then.

"What a difference something so simple can make in one’s life. I am so happy, I don’t dwell on the negative or fear of what may come………I’ve been living in the present since reading your book and aside from one time at the very beginning (I was annoyed with my kids and hubby, and didn’t know how to use what I’d learned in your book towards that situation), I’ve been so content.

"I am now spreading the word to everyone I know…and want you to know that what you’ve taught me is definitely worth the 10 dollars. Thank you so much for changing my life…"
- Cat Belisle

"I stumbled on your site by chance about three weeks ago and have just finished reading your ebook which is absolute dynamite. I have printed out the daily affirmation which I have put in a frame and hung above my bed so it is the first thing I see when I wake up in the morning.

"I would be the first to admit that there are alot of negative emotions on my tape and it's going to be an exciting challenge to turn my life around. My goal in life has always been simply to be happy and fulfilled but I didn't know how to even begin addressing the negative emotions which dominate my tape.........until now!!

"Your book and the daily affirmation is going to be my road map to happiness..I will keep in touch as I progress.

"God bless you, you truly are an inspirational person"
-Danny, aged 28, Wiltshire, England

"I've just finished reading your book and was sorry when it came to an end. As I finished it I felt moved by the power of your words and thoughts and just wanted to say thank you for sharing them with me."
-Gary Pangburn, United Kingdom

"Great book! Especially the affirmation. Keep up the good work. I hope you'll be able to reach as many people as possible."
- Yann Kiraly

"Wow! Thanks for writing and publishing this book. I am on my third read of it already. I am promoting that my entire department read your book."

"I Thank you for taking the time to get clear and write this, what a help it is to me after studying for such a long time to see it clearly and plainly written. It came a time of greatest crisis this a.m., and now I have a firm and secure path of understanding."
Many, Many Blessings,
-Christal Spring

"Just a note to say that your book has helped me immensely. If I get "down," just the recitation of the "Daily Affirmation" seems to lift me up immediately. You are a true example of "always helping others." Thank you so much and may God bless you."
-Dr. Barney Paterson, Calgary, Alberta

"Just what I need at this time: a shining light, a powerful guide, a great reminder! Thank you so much for being there Michael! The human body is simply FORGETFUL! Of course, we knew all about what you wrote. But we always forget. That is why you suggested a mantra: the daily affirmation. Because the human body is forgetful. We have to keep these words in mind all the time and we will be always happy! Thank you again and may you reach more people!"

"You are truely an amazing person. THANKS. I came upon your e-book and web site tonight after typing into "ask.com" the following question: "What is happiness?". I looked at one website and then something told me to click on yours. I am very glad I did and it has helped me tremendously.

"I started working with my "tape" about two to three years ago. I was shocked to learn what was on my tape. I believed that, even though the negative, less than blue collar influences surrounded me growing up, I was a very positive and wealthy person. This got me through a lot of experiences many people do not see in a lifetime. Once I became familiar with my tape I realized that many facts stuck like glue regardless. It wasn't until I decided to accept and love this tape that I moved to re-writing my tape. It has been a great adventure up until the last few weeks (feeling like months). I fell into a rut. (great news is I jumped out tonight)

"As I read your e-book I realized why I felt as though I was in a rut. I had stopped listening to my spiritual friends regularly. I had stopped making my positive daily affirmations. AND being a nurse in a hospital, I had stopped influencing others with my postive-ness and was comizerating with them. You referenced many of my spiritual friends I have listened and interacted with. You wrote of many concepts I have used to help my clients in my hypnotherapy practice and my business.

"Thanks for reminding me about the power of positive thoughts and affirmations. Thanks for allowing me to share some of your experiences which triggered facts of my own experiences. Thanks for taking the time to write, publish and market an excellent group of words that reveal the basic concepts which help people to live a very positive and happy life. Thanks again for giving me a hand when one was needed. I appreciate it. Feel free to post this entire message or any part of it."

"What a great book. Thank you for putting this out into the world. It takes bravery indeed to be this candid and expose so much of yourself in an effort to help others. It will take some time for me to assimilate your teachings into my current belief system, but certainly worth the effort. Be happy through being truthful, positive and helping others! "
-Roland Achtel

"Thank you very much for writing this little e-Book. It has educated and inspired me to follow the 8 words of wisdom. I have read many self-help, happiness books in the past, but yours has inspired me the most. It’s a simple, but powerful message. Thanks again Michael.
- John Paul Monaco

"I just finished reading your book, TWICE! As a person of strong values and desire to live an ethical life I find your book the most helpful tool in our current culture. It is truly an effective tool for functioning in a society where truth seems to be lost; expediency the norm; blind ambition and greed rewarded at any cost as popularized by shows like "Survivor" and "The Apprentice" and with amoral decisions abound from the news media to the courtrooms to Corporate America, itself.

"As a former practicing attorney who found most lawyers despicable and willing to lie as part of the profession to win at any cost, I turned to the financial industry to help people build their retirements safely, but find it a challenge even here to remain truthful, honest and helpful in an industry where greed is pervasive and a business that encourages "the sale" rather than truly helping people.

"I read your Daily Affirmation and it helps a lot.

"God Bless You and may your simple but powerful and effective Manual for Operating As a Human Being reach the far corners of our civilization. The world needs it; people need it; politicians need it; greedy corporate leaders need it; parents need it; today's youth need it."
A kindred spritual traveller,
-J Peladeau

"Thanks for the book. I think it represents great advice and have been reciting the affirmation for a few weeks now. It seems to be working, and I really do hope your theory is right - it would be wonderful if the key to happiness turns out to be "being a good person" - and nothing to do with the media-fuelled nonsense that we are fed concerning the acquisition of possessions, wealth, fame and so on. And while I was brought up to believe that "being good" was very important, good ethical conduct was always presented by teachers and parents as a duty, rather than a source of contentment."
Very best wishes,
-MM, London

"My name is Adam La Spina and I am 15 years old and live in Perth, Western Australia. Your book has enlightened me and made me appreciate so much more in the world and I am very willing to live the Daily Affirmation 100%. However, I must firstly start by being much nicer and more supportive towards my parents and my family, and your book has helped me to be able to do that.

"Your book has been the best book I have ever read and I am going to try my hardest to help change the world for the better of people. Thank you very much for giving me the opportunity to read your book free of charge and thank you very much for sharing with me the 8 words I AM ALWAYS TRUTHFUL, POSITIVE AND HELPING OTHERS!!!!"
- Adam La Spina

"Thank you so much for your Happy Book. Having worked with your previous book, The Mental Keys to Improve Your Golf for nearly three years now, understanding your concepts was fairly easy but definitely necessary to hear in order to incorporate them into my everyday life. "I am always truthful, positive, and helping others" has become a mainstay in my life and I plan to continue that for as long as I live. I try to live by this affirmation everyday, and as a result, it becomes easier and easier each day.

"I am living an extremely happy life right now in large part to your help and guidance over the past few years. I hope that I can help others find this peace of mind and success of happiness the way you have helped me to it in my life. Thanks again for everything you have given to me and to the world. You are a true example of a giving person and one that I am glad the universe intended me to meet."
Your Friend,
- Chris Morrow

"May your desire to help make the World a Happier and better place by changing one person at a time become a reality. Personally, I think this will happen and I will do my part by forwarding your email to all my friends, relatives and business associates.

"You have my deep admiration for writing your Happy Book and giving it to me and the World without charge!
I too dream of one day being able to do something similar for the benefit of my friends and the World at large. My heartfelt thanks and Congratulations for giving me and the World your eight words to live by. I WILL ALWAYS BE TRUTHFUL, POSITIVE AND HELPING OTHERS.
