This book is written to give succinct information on a wide variety of everyday issues faced by millions of people.

In his bookMap to Happiness: Straightforward Advice on Everyday Issues” (published by iUniverse), Peter Stimpson draws from his background as a priest and a social worker to offer readers guidance on navigating life and finding happiness while dealing with life’s issues.

“Map to Happiness” defines happiness as a process in which people choose who they wish to be by how they relate to others. Stimpson provides three key principles that guide readers toward making the right choices, giving them examples from everyday issues, such as love of self, love of spouse and children, parenting children, stress, work, self-esteem, the mid-life crisis, facing illness and death, and much more.

An excerpt from “Map to Happiness”:

“What then is happiness? It is a process, not a product. It is not something you buy, but a process of becoming. You do not have to be a corporate executive, make a six-figure income, and drive a BMW to be happy. These things are certainly nice, but my point is that what you attain is less important than how you attain it. It is how we relate to others that determines our degree of happiness.”

As the title suggests, Stimpson hopes his book helps readers find happiness. “People yearn for help, but their hectic schedules, whether raising children or commuting to work, cry out for advice that gets to the point,” he says. “This book is written to give succinct information on a wide variety of everyday issues faced by millions of people.”
