Solve for Happy by Moe Gawdat - Book Review

Have you been struggling with finding happiness? Is your definition of happiness in itself flawed and inaccurate? Luckily, Mo Gawdat answers all these questions in his book Solve for Happy.

The author, Mo Gawdat, is a remarkable thinker and the Chief Business Officer at Google’s [X].

He applies his logical skills to find ways to be happy and treats happiness like a math equation.

In a way, the reader makes sense of what he is saying throughout the book and finds how to break free from the myths our minds believe in and find the realities.

He proposes an algorithm based on how the brain works and how it perceives sadness and happiness.

The book is not just all about self-help. What makes Gawdat’s book so interesting is the element of his real-life experiences that inspired him to write. Gawdat lost his son, Ali, due to doctors’ errors.

The sudden death of his son took a toll on his life, yet it inspired him to change his outlook on life. As we read the book, traces of Ali are felt on the pages and we see through his recollections of his son’s manners how inspiring he was and how he affected his life.

To reflect on life’s mishaps and misfortunes, Gawdat writes “How many of the worst things that you’ve faced turned out, in time, to be the best things that ever happened to you? How many made you the person you are today? How many helped you meet someone you loved or taught you something you needed to know?” These questions guide us into believing that there’s no need to wish that certain “bad stuff” had never happened.

Gawdat shares the essential aspects of our existence, how to break free from our mind’s negative patterns and re-wire our brains towards positive thinking, and how to choose happiness through acceptance.

We must be aware of our brain’s blind spots and embrace life’s five ultimate truths.
