Building on the work pioneered by his father, Dr. Gerald Jampolsky, the author shows how Attitudinal Healing will give readers the happiness they seek--without changing the amount in one's bank account, spouse, job, status, or religion. The only thing readers need to change is that over which they have complete control--their attitude. As Jampolsky writes, "Nothing needs to change in your life situation or the world in order for you to have peace of mind."

In an increasingly complex world, readers need to remind themselves of what is most precious. Smile for No Good Reason offers simple, practical ways to be happy by approaching life with a different attitude.

From the Author:

I love to write because I learn while I’m writing. I never approach writing a book as an expert. I believe that we are all teachers and students to one another. I write as a fellow human being that wants to learn more about peace and happiness. “Smile for No Good Reason” was written in this spirit.

People can and do begin smiling for no good reason when they find that in order to be happy they only need to change their own thinking and attitudes. I wrote this book because our culture can use a few more smiles from the heart that Attitudinal Healing can bring. By reading and practicing the material in this book, you can bring to the world a beautiful and peaceful smile. With family responsibilities and work deadlines to meet it can be tempting to become sidetracked and stressed by a multitude of little problems and to lose sight of what really matters. I believe that in this increasingly complicated world what is needed is to remind ourselves of what is most precious. “Smile for No Good Reason” serves this purpose.

I have noticed the changes people make are often only a short-term fix, with stress and conflict slowly creeping back in. This book was written after several years of seeing that changing life circumstances without addressing your thinking is like painting over rust: It will look great for a while, but eventually the old rust will slowly break through the new paint. After reading this book whatever changes you make will contribute to your lasting happiness rather than lead to another disappointment or failure.

In short, this book was written because I want all of us to recognize who we really are. When we do this we can't help but smile. Read this book and see how Attitudinal Healing can help you go through your day, responding to life's challenges with peace of mind rather than with fear, anger, and guilt. It is not as hard as you might think.

From the Inside Flap:

Recapture the Joy of Living!

Trying to change your "life" without changing your "attitude" is like painting over rust - it only looks good until the rust shows through again. In "Smile for No Good Reason," Dr. Lee Jampolsky shares the twelve principles of Attitudinal Healing in a collection of motivational, uplifing, and often humorous lessons designed to help us realize "lasting" happiness - the kind of happiness that not even changing our jobs, our partners, or our income brackets can help us attain.

Dr.Jampolsky offers a series of powerful and concise stories that teach us how to joyfully exchange fear for love, selfishness for service, and anger for clarity - to respond to life's challenges with peace, confidence, and laughter.

Your attitudes, nothing more and nothing less, are your most important tools for building happiness and good health. Recapture the joy of living - learn how to "Smile for No Good Reason."
