You went down a storm at our offsite. People loved the insights you brought and the way you seamlessly linked the scientific findings to everyday experiences. They also loved your style of delivery – the way you connected with the audience, your sense of humor, your authenticity and humility. And it’s obvious that what you said has stuck in people’s minds. Since you gave your speech, the phrase “how to have a good day” has been heard many times around the office and I’ve seen your book all over the place. Congratulations. I hope we get a chance to work together again in the future.

I’ve produced many live events over the years with presenters ranging from Grammy winning artists, Nobel Laureates, top ten internet media site founders, and thought leaders of all stripes.  Caroline Webb is as good as any of the best speakers I’ve ever seen. Her fascinating insights into workplace dynamics are the result of careful analysis of the most recent research on behavioral sciences, along with her significant experience as an executive coach, and she presents with wit, charm, and authority.

THANK YOU so much again for yesterday! In spite of the worst possible weather, you filled the room with people, and they all thoroughly enjoyed learning from you. The evaluations are fabulous. One of our survey questions asks about the three most important things that people have learned. Some people said: “ways to change the perception of reality,” “ways to manage stress,” or “ways to manage time.” But my absolute favorite was this comment: “all of it was very helpful.”

Caroline is an intelligent, dynamic speaker who is able to engage audiences with ease. Thanks to her energy, her ability to relate to her audience, and her sense of humor, she takes complex topics and makes them not only understandable but also enjoyable and riveting. She was a big hit.

Finally, a practical book based on evidence. How to Have a Good Day is grounded in state-of-the-art research on behavior and neuroscience, and animated with vivid examples from professionals who have successfully applied Webb’s advice. It might even leave you looking forward to your next tricky conversation or challenging task as an opportunity to try out her tips.

Webb has given us a great gift: she has synthesized all the advice coming out of labs around the world, filtered it for quality, and illustrated it with well-chosen real-world examples. The appendices alone will save you dozens of hours per year — particularly on email — and help you create more great days for yourself. This is the only self-improvement book you will need in the next five years.

How to Have a Good Day is a smart, thorough, and eminently practical book. Just about every page offers a science-based tip to help you become better off — or, in many cases, just plain better.

Daniel H. Pink, author of To Sell is Human and Drive

Almost all of us work in environments where our time is stretched far too thin. How to Have a Good Day helps us rise to that challenge, containing ideas and techniques that show us how to be at our own personal and professional best every day.

Tony Hsieh, New York Times bestselling author of Delivering Happiness and CEO of Zappos.com, Inc.

Behavioral science has come of age in recent years, and it has begged for a world-class translator. Now we have one. Caroline Webb’s peerless translation of the behavioral sciences into tools for shaping the quality of our day is the book we’ve been waiting for. Play with just 2% of the ideas in this book, and you might just end up changing your life’s course. Words like ‘magisterial’ come to mind. Bravo.

Tom Peters, co-author of award-winning bestseller In Search of Excellence

How to Have a Good Day is an extraordinary book — a wonderful mix of science, practical advice, and stories based on Caroline Webb’s years of experience helping a huge range of people transform their professional lives for the better. Every chapter is studded with engaging real-world examples that ring true and illustrate how to make the most of the book’s suggestions. Whatever your personal definition of a good day, you’ll have more of them after reading this book.
