About the Book
An exciting journey through history, socio-economic discourse, and philosophical discussion. This book will guide you, using a holistic approach to finding true happiness. It has the potential to change lives, not by giving advice as to how you should lead your life but by exposing you to concepts, philosophies and a way of thinking (for yourself) that may not have been so obvious before.

Providing an abundance of stimulation and enlightenment on several key topics, it breaks happiness down into three parts (Money, Love, and Health). The etymology of the word “happiness” means “living well”. What flows from this is that if you “live well” you will find happiness and the reason most people believe they will be happy if they are wealthy, in love and in good health is that those three things i.e. money, love, and health promote well-being. This trifecta has the power to make us happy when things are going smoothly, but also the ability to make us really miserable when they are not. The Quest for Happiness is something that every single one of us aspires to.

Our Quest for happiness begins by following historical and present-day examples of figures of accomplishment, those who have succeeded in their own Quests. The whole idea is to encourage the reader to have the mindset of an explorer; because explorers are a special type of human being. They have physical endurance – they have mental toughness – They have plenty of determination and a deep feeling of purpose and most of all they have faith in their pursuit. The author took this concept of exploration a bit further. Geographical explorations have limits whilst exploration of ourselves as a human being is infinite. The author is inviting her readers to turn inwards; because when you turn inwards this is where you find your own treasure.

The book is shaped like a journey, and the author is taking her readers on an Epic Journey serving as their tour guide. This book will entice, surprise and inspire. The words have depth, the journey is meaningful and the message uplifting and thought-provoking. Are you ready for your Quest?

 

Reviews
“This is Your Quest is nothing like any other self-help book you will come across. It is an enlightening delight that defies the genre, well-written, insightful and ever so sincere. The approach is individual, the words have depth and the message is uplifting and thoughtful. The book itself is a journey, and Reed excels at holding the hand of her guest readers. There is a gentle voice to the message. In between each chapter, she includes letters to the readers, recapping what’s has been learned and continually encouraging growth. There is a surprising amount of depth in the presentation. I learned a lot while reading it. I am not a major history nerd, but history was what hooked me. I think it is a really interesting way to break down happiness and comment on the idea of our worth and potential quests.”
- Book Reviewer from England
"This book is indeed a journey inviting us to obtain the happiness we were all born to experience..."
- Martine from England via Amazon
“In This Is Your Quest, author Joanne Reed has created a self-help book with an overreaching framework: a journey through world history and myriad philosophies, while encouraging the reader to embark on a parallel internalized journey. Shaping the book around exterior-world exploration and discovery and then turning the concept inward is an interesting and stimulating approach that lives up to the projected goal: a personal search to attain happiness through a better understanding of the much-desired trifecta: money, love, and health. I enjoyed the book immensely and found her brisk writing style combined with her positive approach to being very refreshing.”
- Margaret Panofski - Author of the “Last Shade Tree”- USA
“This book drew me in from the start. The amount of information that’s been seamlessly strung together into a bountiful trove of ideas is staggering. I especially like the chapter on symbols and the fact about how they can be and have been deceptively used. The author, Joanne Reed, by evidenced in the text, absolutely loves to research. As a writer myself, this text will be a go-to reference for future projects.”
- Robert Gregory
"This Is Your Quest" is book that is in a category by itself. It is not like the average self-help or motivational book. "This Is Your Quest" is a tangible epiphany of man's deepest longing of liberation, journey, joy and the pulse of life. The pulse of life that is man's intuition, which is all too often unfortunately suppressed by man to be fit to scaled to societies norms. Joanne Reed is the author, but when you read the book you feel like you are the one who is writing it (hence the title of the book which really does it justice;) for it truly captures and reflects man's inner longing. As I read it, I felt like a child with an imagination being expanded. The examples of history from the past to current events used in this book are very poignant masterfully establishing connection to the reader's own potential and unveiling of. That is where the power lies in this book. "This Is Your Quest" is no mystical self-help book, it is pregnant with information ranging from monetary system, history, mythology, health, vaccination, and symbology, designed to aid the reader in giving birth to whatever their mind can conceive."
