Praise for ‘ 3D of Happiness ’

“3D of Happiness includes a scientific, philosophic and personal journey of searching for happiness through pleasure, meaning & spirituality. It represents a life voyage of a former shepherd, who as a child lived in complete poverty and deprivation in the very bottom of world’s population, and how this helped him to be in the opposite side within the first class in terms of possessions and position. In other words, from being Mr. No one to be Mr. Special one, as he achieves to get two PhDs; one in economics in which he used theories and concepts to describe and simplify some of the ideas.”

Anas Alamro

The book covers the story of a financially disadvantaged child’s journey to happiness through wealth and materialistic possessions. Through experiencing successive failure, the author has concluded that ethereal happiness cannot be attained via the aforementioned means as it has only brought forth visceral pleasure. Through the adaptation principle and law of decreasing marginal utility, humans never fail to accustom to present circumstances. Thus, an individual whose possessions know of no deficit and another who has accrued nothing have both acclimated to it. Subsequently, the author attempted to attain happiness through meaning and becoming a man rich in value rather than one rich in worldly possessions. Homogeneous to the previous experience, he could not but notice the futility associated with worldly meaning and the nihilism that surrounds it solely due to the lack of any ineradicable effects. In layman terms, all but the everlasting is meaningless. Finally, everlasting happiness presented itself once faith in The Divine was embraced. Indefinite faith in a Supreme Being entrenches permanent satisfaction through ensuring transcendental immortality.”

Mohammed Alhammadi

“I found the book to be very interesting. I read it carefully and found it helpful to decide on my career change. In fact, I stopped reading the book at the middle and have decided to stop pursuing wrong (fake) goals and set my mind to aim my real goals. After being convinced that authentic happiness is not possible through having, doing, and being, I began to pursue a master’s degree to expand my capacity for happiness in higher dimensions.”

Berik Kaliyev
 

“The author has an unpretentious forgiving style that makes the book difficult not to like. The book offers insight into the experiences of a man as he ruminates on the issue of happiness. It provides thoughts on the personal perspective of the author as he pursues success and happiness in his personal and professional life from a spiritual, philosophical, and scientific perspective. Admittedly, there are some hiccups, and it will be a stretch to think that non-religious readers would seriously consider his views on happiness being predicated on the idea of a God and an afterlife.”

Asma Aljohani
 

“3D of Happiness is an exposition on the life of an individual who is trying to seek happiness, self-actualization and life-fulfillment. Author wrote this book for anyone who is lost looking for happiness…The pursuit for the real universal definition of happiness then remains elusive as every individual has to live a unique life with individualized life goals. The only near-universal to find happiness is to acknowledge the fact that happiness does not come about by considering just one dimension. Rather, happiness is derived in multiple dimensions depending on what is important to an individual.”

Mashael Alkanhal
 

“3D of happiness delves into the lifelong pursuit of happiness that every human undertakes, it explores the forms of happiness and the level of pleasure one can pursuing each. From a person who did not have basic toilet facilities in his house to a person who can afford to buy a separate house for his college going children with all the modern facilities, 3D of Happiness is a story of seeking happiness, the setbacks and finally being able to realize that “happiness is not a destination; instead it is a journey itself”. Scientific input, philosophical reflection, and a compelling story create the perfect recipe for a book that can be read by anyone who wants to pleasure a permanent part of their life”

Norah Alsalem

“Although many books have since antiquity examined the meaning of happiness, in my judgment, no other book is as provocative and intellectually mesmerizing as 3D of Happiness. The author writes flawlessly, seamlessly, and explicates an otherwise complex philosophical topic in a captivating yet detailed manner… The book provides convincing answers to some puzzling happiness stories. I am personally acquainted with a family member who, despite owning almost everything I desired as a kid, surprised as with suicide. We were amazed that we questioned why a person with a happy and beautiful spouse, lovely home, cars, and a personal jet would wake up one day and commit suicide. He left a note saying that he had decided to commit suicide because life was incredibly empty, no matter how hard he tried. A closer look back then, I recall some people attributing his tragic end to a cult. However, now I know better after the captivating read on 3D of Happiness. The relative was unhappy despite attaining both hedonic and eudemonic happiness. He was empty because he lacked the third dimension of spirituality.”

Maha Alfaqeeh

“From my point of view, the book was very deep in clearing the concept of happiness with a very simple and direct language. The sequence of the ideas and how they’ve been linked together kept the reader attached to the last point. The reality of the events at the beginning of the book touched me to the deepest point, I was amazed by the persistence of the author to achieve what he wanted and how to change his reality which he refused to adapt with, despite all the difficulties that faced him. His strength made me think more than once about all the decisions I’ve made in my life, it made me believe that nothing is impossible. After reading 3D of Happiness, I’m completely convinced about where the true happiness lies on moderation as it is said “whoever employs his mind in a proper way will understand that living well is living in moderation.”
