Happy as Harry

A rescue dog shares his secrets for daily happiness

By Deana Luchia

  • Hardback
  • £12.99

A positive, touching and uplifting book about happiness, written by the perfect life coach - Harry the one-eyed rescue dog.

Happy as Harry is a positive, touching and uplifting book about happiness, written by the perfect life coach - Harry the one-eyed rescue dog, and his owner, Deana Luchia. Perfect for fans of Alfie and George, Haatchi & Little B and The Happiness Project.

'Dogs know how to be happy. It's what we do best. We cavort, careen, race and chase. Any day can be a good day, an amazing and fabulous day. You have the power to make an ordinary day extraordinary simply by deciding to make it so.' Harry the Dog

Dogs are the happiest creatures in the world. They possess qualities that include their ability to live in the moment, their incredibly loving and playful natures and their innate forgiveness and joie de vivre. So a dog is the perfect narrator for a book about how to be happy. If dogs could share their secrets on happiness, this book is what they would say.

The book is divided into six life-coaching sections:

How to be Happy
Love Well and be Well Loved
Happy Families
A Balanced Life
How to be Good
Saying Goodbyes

Harry, along with a group of his closest friends, shows us how dogs approach life in all of these areas, and shares his simple and practical top tips for how we, as humans, can learn from dogs in order to live better, happier lives ('After every bath dry your whole body with a hairdryer'). We may have to dodge some curveballs at times, but there are plenty of challenges that can be overcome and doubts that can be banished by looking at the world through Harry's eyes.

Biographical Notes

Deana Luchia has a Masters in Professional Writing and is a journalist who writes about parenting, pets, happiness and love. She also blogs about her various rescue dogs. She lives in London with her children and two wise canines, one of whom is Harry.

The new hilarious and inspirational memoir from Sunday Times no. 1 bestselling author Bryony Gordon.'A courageous account that will inspire us all - bloody brilliant' Fearne Cotton'An honest and damn funny book about daring to dream, about chafing and Vaseline, and running through the pain. I raced through it without getting a stitch' Matt HaigBryony Gordon was not a runner. A loafer, a dawdler, a drinker, a smoker, yes. A runner, no. But, as she recovered from the emotional rollercoaster of opening up her life in her mental health memoir MAD GIRL, she realised that there were things that might actually help her: getting outside, moving her body and talking to others who found life occasionally challenging. As she ran, she started to shake off the limitations that had always held her back and she saw she had actually imposed them on herself. Why couldn't she be a runner? In April 2017, Bryony Gordon ran all 26.2 miles of the London Marathon. In Eat, Drink, Run., we join her as she trains for this daunting task and rises to the challenge one step at the time. Of course, on top of the aching muscles and blistered feet, there's also the small matter of getting a certain royal to open up about his mental health. Through it all, Bryony shows us that extraordinary things can happen to everyone, no matter what life throws our way.What readers are saying about Eat, Drink, Run.:'One of the best things about this book is how Bryony manages to make you laugh, make you tearful, but ultimately hopeful about yourself and your own outlook on life and mental health''I laughed, I cried, I got inspired to run again''Bryony at her best by far! Honest, endearing, beautifully written. We all can relate in some way, if you are in doubt about how you feel, or indeed you are a person that says I can't - read this because you can, we all can'
