Every Day a Friday by Joel Osteen offers twenty-seven chapters divided into seven sections, all built on key points for holding on to your happiness and joy every day of the week. If any of you have ever listened to Joel Osteen speak, he is all about optimist and looking at the bright side of things. Every Day a Friday is a written version of that attitude and has a lot of good advice for turning every day into Friday, what most consider to be the best day of the week.
This book was well-structured, well-written, and the ideas were well-developed. And while there were parts that were insightful and helpful, by the middle of the book I understood the concept and thought it became a little repetitive. Each section is specific to one lesson to learn (e.g., Live Without Crutches, The Healing Power of Laughter, and Help Others Win) and apply in our lives and in general, yes, I think that Joel got his point across. If we live our lives with a more positive and optimist spirit, we will be happier, not because bad things won't happen to us but we'll react to them better. Good but not life changing. 3 stars.
