It has been 25 years since Gateway to Happiness was first published. Since then, there has been a greater awareness of the importance of happiness in our lives.
I thank Bnay Yaakov Publications, the publisher of the complete Gateway to Happiness, for giving their permission for this condensation of the first eight chapters for distribution as a free ebook. May they be blessed.
The complete book has 435 pages. This condensation provides the reader with the basic ideas that serve as a foundation for the rest of the work. Applying the principles found in this condensation will enable you to live a happier life.
I have written a number of books on related topics published by Artscroll. For more information about those books see Artscroll.com/Authors/Rabbi_Zelig_Pliskin.html
The book I would most recommend is Conversations with Yourself (Artscroll). There I elaborate on how our self-talk can increase our level of happiness, and how counter-productive self-talk is at the root of unhappiness and needless limitations. This is a practical guide to greater happiness, self-development, and self- empowerment.
