Praise for “There is Another Way to Happiness”

As a physician, integrative oncologist, and New Age enthusiast, I have read hundreds of books in this genre. Yet, none have delivered a more pragmatic and accessible approach to living mindfully and joyfully. In his revolutionary book, Dr Chilton seamlessly distills concepts from groundbreaking thinkers such as Eckart Tolle, Carl Jung, and Jon Kabat Zinn in a narrative that is delightfully eloquent and profoundly inspiring. There is Another Way to Happiness is truly a beacon of hope and light, guiding readers toward a brighter, more conscious way of being. This will now be the first book that I recommend to my patients and anyone else on a quest for peace and happiness.

Dr. Ski Chilton, a humane biochemist with notable accomplishments of scientific excellence and a previous author of informative books about human disease and health, now personalizes a quest for mindfulness and happiness—while applauding the wisdom of his diminutive grandmother. As hinted by the book’s title, ingesting its content enlightens an ancient route toward happiness that never disappeared. This happiness route emerges for the reader from the ‘sounds of silence’ that whispers to Ski during treks with his dog into the canyons of Arizona. The name of the route is daily meditation.  There are no toll booths.
