Praise for The Happiness Playlist

”Mark Mallman is legitimately original, exclusively motivated by a desire to conquer the strange obstructions he builds inside his mind.” –Chuck Klosterman (Foreword by), author of Fargo Rock City: A Heavy Metal Odyssey in Rural North Dakota

”This brave and masterfully written book is a testament to the power of love and art. Read it and become obsessed.” —Diablo Cody, Academy Award-winning screenwriter of Juno and creator of United States of Tara

The Happiness Playlist is funny, thought-provoking, and just plain helpful. It’s the best book on grief that I’ve ever picked up. The examination of music-listening as a method to combat heartbreak is a joy to read. You need it.” —-Craig Finn, frontman of the critically acclaimed band The Hold Steady

About The Happiness Playlist

Minneapolis rock legend Mark Mallman woke at 3 a.m. with a crushing panic attack that wouldn’t end. He responded by pouring songs into a happiness playlist and leaning on the wisdom of friends. This is the true story of a man beset by grief, healed by music, and learning to laugh through it all.
