Don't Worry, Be Happy

Do a search for Winston Churchill biographies and a list of 118,000 results is returned. How could someone write another one that might stand out from the rest?

Grechen Rubin wrote Forty Ways to Look at Winston Churchill.
Rubin says Churchill's "greatest strength was his genius with words" and one humble high school teacher illustrates this in his blog as he refers to her work.

Rubin took on another popular icon (352,000 hits) with Forty Ways to Look at JFK. Select "Playing with Convention" to see her unique approach to biography.

Although it seems she has many projects going, her daily blog highlights The Happiness Project. Read through some of her quotes -- she seems to have a love affair with words. Look at the left sidebar for tips -- tips for being happy, for buying groceries on vacation, for passing time with the kids, and many, many more. The right sidebar has a long list of amazing links as well as a happiness library, all contributing to happiness.

Here's a tip:
Read a couple of biographies and just be happy.
