"In this delightful book brimming with humorous and poignant passages, radio personality Hugh Hewitt provides the answer. The starting place is generosity, he says, and there are seven gifts that are sure to improve the lives of both giver and receiver: encouragement, energy, enthusiasm, good humor, graciousness, gratitude, and patience.
Anyone can give these gifts, but Hewitt shows that some people are particularly well placed to offer them: parents, spouses, family members, friends, teachers, coworkers, and fellow church members.
Channeling his skills as a broadcaster, journalist, lawyer, and teacher, Hewitt weaves stories about these seven gifts and seven givers with inspiring and motivating observations to help readers become generous in the ways that matter most.
"The Happiest Life is not simply a delight to read, and not merely a glimpse under the hood of a remarkable man. It’s a map to what Robert Frost once described as the road less traveled—the road that leads to a life of meaning and gratitude and joy.”
—Charles J. Chaput, O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Philadelphia
"Reading this book is the next best thing to sitting down for a long conversation with my friend Hugh Hewitt.”
—Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
“Wanna be a happier person? Know anyone else who does? What if this book could actually help with that? Cutting to the chase—it can. And it will."
—Eric Metaxas, New York Times best-selling author of Bonhoeffer: Pastor, Martyr, Prophet, Spy and 7 Men: And the Secret of Their Greatness

- Review by Debra Elliott
After reading The Happiest Life by Hugh Hewitt, I understood why these seven gifts are so important for a happiest life. You have not only have them, but you have to give them back. (Posted on 12/28/2013)
