About the Book
In Life Is Full of Sweet Spots, author Mary O’Connor draws on the experiences of some 40 assorted individuals who have found happiness in their own lives, and presents ways of finding joy in a world where sadness and loss seem to overshadow peace and contentment.

With its engaging narrative, nuggets of inspiration and supportive research, this surprising travel guide invites readers to explore joy's favorite hiding places: the earth, sea and sky, as well as, internally, our bodies, minds and souls.

“The search for joy and happiness in life is consistently triggered by both difficult and good times, by economic highs and lows, by sociological and psychological trends alike,” says O’Connor. “This book creates a helpful framework of places to visit, things to do, useful facts and suggested resources, and in so doing, helps its readers discover their personal sweet spots of life."

Illustrated with photos of activities and treasures of joy, Life Is Full of Sweet Spots reinforces the use of individual interests and abilities as a means of seeing and owning joy. As shown in the world opened up in the pages of this book, sweet spots are all around us, just waiting to be found.

My Take on the Book
This was a well written book that made me really consider the amazing world around me. The book makes you look at all aspects to see the intricacy of life. The book is full of great vignettes with great quotes that will draw you further into the book and made you connect at a deeper level with the concepts as well and they made you think more holistically about the world around you as well. This is a book that you can take your time with and enjoy as each section is one that has so much in it.
