Rethink Happy: An Entrepreneur’s Journey Toward Finding Authentic Joy by Doug Kisgen (Book Review #53)

This review is written for Online Book Club.

“I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.”

Although this book is a fictional story, it comes from a very real place. The Author uses two characters in his tale to express and communicate his message to the reader.

The significance of the message is way more useful than the story, however, sometimes, I believe people listen and learn faster and more effectively when it is said in a tale rather than a more direct approach. What is this message you ask? How to authentically be happy with your life!

Cleve is a successful businessman and has everything a person would want in life, right up until he loses it all. Camino becomes his life coach and directs him towards a journey that he has never taken before. Camino’s approach comes with three fundamental principles quoted from the author “Old school philosophy and new school science towards understanding the secrets of living with authentic joy.”


This book is very uplifting and joyful to read. By the end of the tale, the message is clear, and it does make you wonder about your own life and have you think through the way you are currently living. Time, love, peace and sacrifice are all key to succeeding in this path of fulfillment. In addition, there are some spiritual and religious references included, in hopes of achieving happiness. Many concepts are discussed in this book the tale has a very realistic approach on triumphing setbacks in life.

Struggling is what we do when we cannot find the right path to take and since living in the 21st century comes along with many ups and down, I believe that having this book on your bookshelf will definitely work in your favor especially when times are tough.
