On 5/19 Brandon Kraft wrote: The premise is so good. Solid reminders of seven gifts and seven givers that really matter in life are important and should be conveyed to a wider audience. The book, too, had a great number of diverse people recommending it in the book's fodder. I wanted to write a good review for it. I really did. ... The Happiest Life: Not Bad, but Misses The Mark

On 5/8 Gingi Freeman wrote: I had a really hard time getting through this book. At first, it started kind of slow, but still stuck to the point of “steps to happiness”.

On 4/26 Jennifer DuBois wrote: In some combination of the self-help, memoir, and Christian living genres, Hugh Hewitt's The Happiest Life will likely appeal to a variety of readers but perhaps tempered by that diversity in tone.

On 3/12 Danny Conner wrote: With a title like The Happiest Life what is not to love? Well the truth is that often times in the “Christian World” we are told to never seek after happiness and any book about the subject is by nature UNBIBLICAL. But what if God does care about our happiness? And more importantly what if that happiness ... A Remix Review on the Happiest Life by Hugh Hewitt

On 2/28 Kevin wrote: Besides the seven gifts, we read about the seven givers (spouses, parents, teachers, coworkers...). These are relationships in which we have the best opportunity to be givers. Hewitt then moves on to the Greatest Giver--God. A right relationship with, or understanding of God will move people to love ... The happiest life!
