Reviewed by Roy T. James for Readers' Favorite

You Can't Ruin My Day: 52 Wake-Up Calls to Turn Any Situation Around by Allen Klein is funny, lighthearted, and real, providing anecdotal advice that will help you gain the happiness perspective and get over annoyances. It contains fifty-two themes, or “Wake-Up Calls,” to enhance your life. It is organized into seven sections, namely Start-up, Wake-up, Wise-up, Grow-up, Crack-up, Wrap-up and Wind-up. Concepts about how to counteract the things that dampen your day are added frequently as Wake-Up Calls. Meaningful quotations and anecdotes with relevance to the topic under discussion enrich this inspiring book. Extolling the virtues of novelty, Allen ends this book with an interesting quote: “If you always do what you have always done, you will always get what you have always gotten.”

Allen gives greater importance to ‘doing’ rather than ‘opposing.’ The author proposes a light but effective way of perceiving all that is happening to you in a different light. Simple, exploratory questions like “Am I willing not to let anything or anyone upset me?” or “Am I willing to put annoyances aside today?” are included in this book to help one remain focused on goals. Allen boldly says, “To be happier and not let anyone ruin your day, the secret of life is to not take anything personally, to let go and to stop resisting. One of the things that can quickly ruin your day is insisting that everything be perfect.” It gave me a lot to think about, a fresh look at the issues of motivation and success.
