The three components of happiness are: something to do someone to love something to look forward to. We love someone when the importance of his or her needs and desires rises to the level of our own. It is difficult to remove by logic an idea not placed there by logic in the first place. I don’t have a clear idea of what people need to do to make themselves better. Most people know what is good for them, know what will make them feel better: exercise, hobbies, time with those they care about. They do not avoid these things because of ignorance of their value, but because they are no longer motivated to do them.

At first I was inspired, except maybe the part where the author suggests that joining the military and going off to war is right of passage. But as the chapters wear on they become darker, more cynical, and by the end complaints without solutions.
There's an ongoing theme of risktaking that while applicable to things like getting outside of a comfort zone should not include stupid risks or the ol' "we're all gonna die some day might as well not be afraid of nothin'" way of thinking.
Don't be scared of child predators, instead, consentrate on global warming. He lost me at change the work with hope but love is just a temporary insanity.
The author seems the type of man who has nothing left to lose, so risk to him is easy. Like he can't wait to die, so long as the way he dies has meaning.
Some chapters discuss his personal life without offering any connection to anything particularly useful to the reader other than instilling a sense of hopeless non-control over our lives or others.
Tragedy tends to turn sufferers altruistic and I'm not sure the author is as self aware as he seems to think he is.
I mean I'd never get married after reading this book since it insists that the chances of two people coexisting peacefully together for a long period of time is roughly the equivalent of successfully navigating an asteroid field.

Don't read this in one or two sittings, even though you could. Read a chapter a day and reflect on what it means and how you can apply it to your life. The lessons seem easy but most are not. The author has many black and white judgements which probably should be more gray but his many points are well taken.
Some things he points out are painful, some will make you laugh, others will make you sad, but all can make you think. I will put this on my shelf and re-read in 6-12 months, as I want to be reminded of its valuable lessons.

There is something in this book for everyone. You'll need to wade through and past certain lessons that aren't applicable to you at this time or state of your life. The book is a mix of lessons of a practicing psychiatrist, lessons from his own life (which were particularly moving and insightful) and lessons he is trying to pass along to the reader - so the book does at times read like a "hodge-podge" as stated by another reviewer. You won't find that the "30 True Things You Need to Know Now" come with a 3-step playbook on how to fix or succeed but the insights are valuable. The following chapters were particularly useful for me:

Chapter 4: The statute of limitations has expired on most of our childhood traumas. We are responsible for most of what happens to us

Chapter 6: Feelings follow behavior.
As much as we try, we do not control how we feel or what we think. Efforts to do so are uniformly frustrating as we struggle against unwanted thoughts and emotions in ways that only exacerbate them....But any change requires that we try new things, risking always the possibility that we might fail. Another question I often ask patients is, `What are you saving yourself for?'.

Chapter 9: Life's Two Most important questions are `Why?' and `Why Not'? The trick is knowing which one to ask. If people are reluctant to answer `Why?' questions in their lives, they also tend to have trouble with `Why Not'? The latter implies risk. Steeped in habit and fearful of change, most of us are to some degree risk averse. Particularly in activities that may involve rejection, we tend to act as if our sense of ourselves is fragile and must be protected. One would think that these fears would improve with age and experience; the opposite is usually the case...To take the risk necessary to achieve this goal is an act of courage. To refuse them, to protect our hearts against all loss, is an act of despair."

Chapter 11: The most secure prisons are those we construct for ourselves...So much of our lives consists of broken promises to ourselves. The things we long to do - educate ourselves, become successful in our work, fall in love, are goals share by all. Nor are the means to achieve these things obscure. And yet we often do not do what is necessary to become the people we want to be. It is human to shift blame for our failures...a shortage of time and the requirement to make a living are common excuses for inaction. Also, the fear that we might try and not succeed can produce a crippling inertia. Keeping our expectations low protects us from disappointment....whenever, as happens frequently, I point out to people the discrepancy between what they say they want and what they actually do, the response is surprise and sometime outrage that I will not take their expressions of intent at face value but prefer to focus on the only communication that can be trusted: behavior."

Chapter 15: Only Bad Things Happen Quickly. The process of building has always been slower and more complicated than that of destruction.

Chapter 18: There is nothing more pointless, or common than doing the same things and expecting different results.
I believe in what works. What you are doing now isn't working. Why not try something else?

My book club read this book and they loved it. Livingston takes a no nonsense approach to mental health. For instance, we all have something in our childhoods that is not good and we cannot blame our childhoods for our later actions. He believes we all make choices and we must take responsibility for these choices. I thought he got a little preachy at times but the other members loved it. The chapters are very short and can be read as stand alone lessons.

If you're looking for the fount of wisdom, the one volume to unravel all life's mysteries, keep looking. The title is promising, but this isn't it. No aha's or takeaways, except maybe the realization you can trust yourself and what life is showing you each day. Maybe life is too big for just one book, or for one man to figure out. The closest I came to such a book in this year's reading was the Book of Sirach, a surprisingly gratifying and illuminating volume the ancients left for us in the way of wisdom. But the whole of wisdom is not there, either.

I read this book years ago after hearing a interview w/ Dr. Livingston. This book brings humor and insight to so many of those things that we are sure only we deal with. Gave me great perspective on my parents as well as my own parenting. It is a book that tells you you are in control of your life. Not the events but how you deal with and move forward through those events. I would recommend this book to everyone. It is not a book you have to sit and read cover to cover. It is 30 small chapters and you can just randomly pick a chapter if you want. The chapters are short and sweet. If you are looking for a book that tells you how to live your life this isn't it. If you are looking at a book that emphasizes you should live your life, this is it.
