How Life Works

THE MYTH: success makes you happy.
: happiness makes you successful.

How Life Works is about the power of emotion. It is about why the same things keep happening to you.

How Life Works is about why:

  • rich people get richer
  • lottery winners end up broke
  • happy people are magnets for opportunity
  • positive thinking works – sometimes.

On success, says Andrew:

  • it’s not so much WHAT you know
  • it is not WHO you know
  • it is how you FEEL.

How Life Works is illustrated with 90 of Andrew’s trademark sketches.

“My cartoons illustrate the message”, he says. “Cartoons also remind us not to take life too seriously.”
