    1. Caroline Webb has managed to write a heavily researched, evidence-based manual that can be helpful to just about anyone. Which probably makes it sound horribly boring, but it really isn't!Most of the book is written for people who work--at the top or the bottom of the food chain, it doesn't matter. But even I, as a stay-at-home mom and writer, found plenty in here to apply to my life. Webb's tone is very conversational, and while the content is dense, she manages to inject levity and humor often [...]

    2. Os Desafiantes Dias MausHá boas notícias na área da ciência comportamental, pois já não se ocupa exclusivamente do que é negativo.Está focada não apenas na cura das depressões e ansiedades depois delas acontecerem, mas também na sua prevenção. Quer isto dizer que se propõe mostrar-nos uma panóplia de ferramentas com as quais podemos contar para superar as mais diversas contrariedades.E a boa nova é que não é necessário ir ao super-mercado comprá-las, pois já constam no DNA - [...]

    3. I've read dozens of this kind of book in the past - blends of how to be more productive, more fulfilled, more content, more energised, better at decisionmaking and leadership, all while trying to keep a career moving at a good pace. This is quite literally the most useful book I've ever read.It has practical advice on virtually every aspect of a modern work day - meetings, email, relationships, communiation, sharp thinking - grounded in interesting research and then brought to life with stories [...]

    4. I listened to the audiobook read by the author and should unforunately acknowledge that it is not well read. She reads the book with a very slow speed and her voice may not keep your interest very long.The book is a comprehensive collection of tools and techniques useful for having a good day (at work). However, if you have previously been reading self-help books, you may not find many new tips and techniques on offer here that would be considered game changing.The author has dedicated a complet [...]

    5. You know those books where you find yourself dog-earing every page to ensure you come back, because there is so much valuable information? Caroline Webb's How to Have a Good Day is quite possibly one of the only books you'll ever need to read on practical ways to enhance your productivity, relationships, strategy making, and energy with simple, doable tips based on behavioral science studies.Sound like a bore to you? Trust me, it's not. Webb writes in a personal and honest way, sharing her own m [...]

    6. I enjoyed this book I won from giveaway because of the organization of it. It is written in such a way as I was unable to put the book down. It is concise and to the point. I have a new outlook on my every day work experiences because of this book.

    7. Bought this book on an impulse. Best impulse decision I made as this book uncovers so many actually science-backed FACTS to improve your life and productivity.Really enjoyed the appendices at the end as well.Will definitely be coming back to this book over and over again for refreshing.

    8. I read this book because a friend of mine recommended it. He said "it made sense." Since my friend is someone I highly respect, I bought the book without giving it a second thought. But now I read the book. I don't think I have learned anything new. Change your attitude, the way you approach things, prioritize, I mean, haven't we heard about them before? Where is the new idea? Maybe I missed some important message. I just didn't feel enlightened. I didn't really see anything that I haven't alrea [...]

    9. This would be a great starting point for those unfamiliar with the research already out there on applied psychology. That being said, it's meant to be a pop-book for the layperson, and doesn't offer anything new. I would highly recommend it to some people (and think it would be a 5 star book to them), but since I'm already familiar with the material, I can't fairly give it a rating.

    10. This book is sort of a review of the literature of productivity, efficiency, being calm, conflict resolution, focus, etc all the stuff of a "good day" at work. All of that is pure ruby and pearls to this superdork. But while I enjoyed this, what David Brooks did in The Social Animal, which is similar in topic (though it's about how to have a good LIFE instead of a good day), made that a book I'm positive will stick with me longer than this one. He reviewed the literature via fictional characters [...]

    11. This book should suck. Really. The title clearly over-promises (“How To Have a Good Day,” indeed) and the text attempts three of the most difficult non-fiction high-wire acts: popularizing science without making stupid errors, presenting business advice that doesn’t trigger your bullshit detector, and giving self-help tips that don’t fall off into either banality or featherbrained woo.Nearly impossible. And yet, somehow, Caroline Webb has pulled it off.“How to Have a Good Day” is a m [...]

    12. Behavioral science, exploring and explaining the reasons why people behave as they do, makes for a fascinating read in itself, but information alone is not enough to change behaviour, as we know! That's where this book comes in: How To Have A Good Day not only explains the theory but it distillates this knowledge into useful techniques to tweak the way you go about your day. The tone is warm and engaging, the real-life examples illustrating the application of these techniques keep you turning th [...]

    13. This is as far from "self help", full of obvious things, shouted in bold, boring books, as you an imagine. There is science here, there are real world examples and most of all it connects, creating a blend that is irresistible to go an have a try in real life. Its like somebody finally wrote a "manual" how to operate "You".Its fabulous and it did transform my life.

    14. Really good, helpful, practical stuff. I liked it, marked a lot of pages to get back to, and will bring it to the office to refresh myself with periodically.

    15. How to have a good day explores the latest studies in behavioural science to help us understand how to have better relationships, be happier and enjoy day-to-day interactions with others.The author lays her research out in an easy to understand way, backed with anecdotes and stories to highlight what the reader might learn.I learned a number of interesting tips and techniques while reading this book, and I can see it being a book I return to again in the future to re-read.Recommended!

    16. There are two kinds of management/ self help books out there - the ones written by people who know what they are talking about and those written by chancers. It is sometimes hard to tell them apart because the chancers sound as if they have something worthwhile to say. What the chancers are really doing is to take a few principles, adding in more or less relevant examples, and packaging the whole thing up with over-blown promises about how this book will change your life."How to have a good day" [...]

    17. First of all, this has to be one of the worst titles for a book I've ever seen makes the book appear like it will either be near the absolute worst of what the self-help genre has to offer or the worst of what popular psychology has to offer (or both). I'm sure it makes you wonder why I ever picked it up in the first place. I found this book by listening to an episode of "The Art of Manliness" podcast, which is one of my favorite podcasts. The interview was excellent, and I was impressed by what [...]

    18. Listened to this as an audio book which was surprisingly easy to do. There is lots of familiar territory but the book is all the better for that with reference to works I already use adding credibility to the wider subjects cover. The summary at the end of the chapters and the cross reference through the chapters is a really useful tool . I have ended buying the book so that I can have an easy reference guide and have also bought copies for members of my team. A great all around guide for those [...]

    19. I enjoy reading self help books so I'm familiar with a lot of the most popular techniques around today. This book manages to pack a lot into its pages and I found it entertaining and informative reading. I alternated between reading it and listening to the audio book version read by the author herself. She has a light hearted and conversational style which makes you feel as though she is a friend helping you to turn your life around.All the usual things such as mindfulness, prioritising, list ma [...]

    20. It's as if every book about productivity, efficiency and collaboration was distilled down into the most useful gems. I wish I'd had this book fifteen years ago - EVERYONE can benefit from it. It's perhaps especially important if you're in the early stages of your career, so you can avoid learning a few things the hard way, but even those of us in a mid/late career stage can improve our game, so to speak. Clear, immediately helpful tips and solid, science-based reasoning make this a book I'll be [...]

    21. Excellently and conversationally written, Webb combines aspects of behavioral science and how the applications can be actually applied to improve life. There is focus (as is true in most books like this) on priorities and productivity, but the behavioral science tweaks add a lot to the reader's understanding. There are also sections on relationships, resilience (resetting after setbacks), boosting energy, and influence. She includes chapters on "making it stick" and things that improve meetings, [...]

    22. As a psychodynamically-oriented therapist, it is always horrifying to me that people would use the field of psychology to teach sociopaths how to get ahead at work, as opposed to working towards world peace and/or universal intrapsychic wellness. However, these are the skills that are most necessary to thrive under late-model capitalism. I would imagine behavioral scientists would consider this "reframing".

    23. First third is excellent (5 stars). But then it keeps going and tries to do way too much without really adding new insight. I had to force myself to finish. Still the beginning is totally worth it. It combined a lot of ideas I've read elsewhere but was more comprehensive and provided a stronger scientific basis for the ideas as opposed to just anecdotal evidence.

    24. This is a giveaway review. I loved this book, it is a very concise plan about how to maximize and organize your time and knowing what to do first, and how to have more energy and happiness.

    25. Entire chapters of talk. Just get to the point. There might be a few good takeaways, but didn't have an entire day to find them.

    26. Excellent. Much of the research I was familiar with and much of it was new. All of it as in the context of the work environment, not so much the other parts of life.
