Timberdoodle's review
Well, Bob Schultz has done it again. With his characteristically self-effacing and transparent writing, he speaks to the hearts not only of young men, but to each of us. Practical Happiness: A Young Man's Guide to a Contented Life is a collection of concise but captivating stories designed to teach young men that genuine happiness can only be found by seeking the heart of God.

His chapter on job assignments has the potential of radically changing the mood in every household and is worth the price in and of itself. His section on tests revealing truth dares believers who say they love the truth to welcome both tests and the results. These and other riches are waiting to be mined in this thirty-six-chapter book.

Written in a relaxed, conversational tone, Practical Happiness may have been intended for young teens but seems best suited as a read-aloud, maybe as a bonus to your family devotion time. To make discussion as effortless as possible questions are included at the end of each chapter. While aimed at teens, there is nothing written that would not be appropriate for a much younger child to hear, making this book a great gift for any family which aims to raise a generation to glorify God.

A Useful Book October 26, 2011
Reviewer: Anna Wood from Mobile, AL United States  
We have owned this book for many years now and find it to be extremely useful to our boys. The author writes in such a way as to be easily understood while maintaining biblical standards. Read it and be blessed.

The best of the best! October 10, 2011
Reviewer: Susan Simpson from Harrington, DE United States  
We love all the Bob Schultz books, but this one beats them all!  We are currently going through Practical Happiness with our teenage son as part of our family devotions.  We are amazed at how transparent and "real" Mr. Schultz is when he shares his personal failures and the times that he has learned from his mistakes.  We marvel at how greatly God can use and bless someone when he gets his eyes off himself and his circumstances.  We are motivated to dig deeper into God's Word and apply what we read.  This book is as practical for adults--men and women--as it is for boys and young men.

I pray they will pass it on to their sons! February 18, 2010
Reviewer: Sandy  
So relevant in our self-centered society! Each of my sons and nephews have their own copy and I pray they will pass it on to their sons! Excellent material for devotions for teens.
