5.0 out of 5 stars Life can be beautiful if you make it beautiful. It is up to you.
Reviewed in Australia on 7 October 2021
I really appreciate you writing this book Eddie. It became one of the best books for me. I actually bought it without reading any reviews (I liked how he named the book) and surprisingly this is worth reading. I can’t imagine how tough his life had gone through it was so difficult, painful and he still call himself “the happiest man on earth” and yes he really is.

There’re so many great moments and inspirational lines from this book also very powerful, touching, heartbreaking and I was so sobbing uncontrollably 😭

Everyone should read!

(Update : Eddie Jaku has died at age 101 #12October2021. Rest In Peace, the happiest man on earth 🤍)
