I was moved by the simplicity of your insights. I keep a copy in my office and refer to it often. I always find something to help ease the daily stress of my work. I have purchased and distributed copies to my top managers and executives. I give it my highest recommendation.

I absolutely ADORE this book!! It really tells you, in a very practical straightforward and easy-to-understand way, how to become happier by using your thoughts. And bottom-line, don’t we all want to be happier? I felt, as I was reading it, that Jim was speaking directly to me, not just rambling on and on with psychological mumbo-jumbo.What he says makes sense. What he says WORKS! The chapters are short but powerful. I am very interested in the law of attraction and Jim incorporates that into the book as well, but in a subtle and helpful way that won’t turn people off.I am a clinical social worker in private practice, and I also teach classes on gratitude and happiness, so I have read many, many books on the subject. Some are too scientific, some are too corny, but Jim’s book is, as goldilocks says, just right!

I have read the first 20 pages of Simple Happiness and I could put the book down right now and will have learned VERY valuable life lessons.
It was a pleasure meeting you at the seminar. You are a gifted man. Thank you for sharing your gifts with the world.

Simple Happiness is a magical and touching combination of logic, awareness and spirit. Ryan inspires us with his charisma, uplifting messages and thought provoking anecdotes.

[Jim] you have surpassed Dale Carnegie, Norman Vincent Peale and even Wayne Dyer in one very important aspect. It is your voice. While reading [Simple Happiness] I heard you taking to me. There was no bombast, no pedantic style, just a friend sharing with another friend some profound ‘secrets’ he has discovered and now wants to pass on with enthusiasm. It was as if you were on a chair next to me telling me some great strategies that have worked for you.
Fred Chernow, Author of The Sharper Mind
Your book Simple Happiness was wonderful! I am not really such a great reader, but I found it very easy to read and understand. I felt so much better after I read it. Actually I read it twice. I’m going to tell everyone about it. It has my highest recommendation.

My name is Chris, I was unable to attend your talk at St. Philip’s last week, but I did purchase your book, “Simple Happiness”. I read it in one day and LOVED it. I am recommending it to my friends and family. I will read it again, but this time, highlighting specific areas and quotes I know I will need to reflect on time and time again.Is your book available in tape or CD form? My husband suffers from Macular Degeneration and, unfortunately, can no longer read. I feel this book would help him immensely as it has me.

I just had to let you know that I was sorry I did not get to talk to Jim Ryan last time. Please let him know that I started to read his book the other night when I was really depressed about a situation I was in. He helped me tremendously. Perhaps saved a relationship. Please tell him I will be forever grateful. I plan on using his advice frequently.

I would like to thank you for giving such an inspirational talk last week. I was truly moved by your talk and went out later that afternoon to purchase your book. The book really ‘hit home’ for me. There was so much that I could relate to and found your words very meaningful. Thank You!I look forward to talking to you later today and exploring some ways in which I can be of assistance to you.
