About Open When
Happiness expert Karen Salmansohn presents a unique interactive book that invites readers to literally open letters of encouragement, wit, and wisdom whenever they need a boost.
Inspired by the trend of “open when” letters sweeping the nation, Instant Happy author Karen Salmansohn has created a bound collection of 12 notes for readers to flip open whenever they need a pep talk. With categories like “Open when you need a laugh,” “Open when you’re feeling stressed out,” and “Open when you need courage,” these little happiness-boosters are based on Salmansohn’s viral posters that combine witty sayings with colorful graphics.
The book itself is a cute book, but I feel like I would’t want to spend money buying it, when I could just make something like it myself. I did like the envelope open when someone is being mean that one summed it up pretty good.
Some of the drawings inside were cute, but others looked dated. A better artist would have helped out the book a lot. Overall it is a short and cute read. I am not sure the envelopes would really help me get past how I am feeling, but they may help others.
