The SIMPLE Life: Shiny Objects Not
Required by Kita Szpak
About The Book:
The SIMPLE Life focuses on the process of moving from a busy,
distracting life to a simple life of purposeful living where once-present shiny
objects are no longer necessary or desirable. Appealingly short, The SIMPLE
Life is the perfect choice for those who know their overly-scheduled, distracted
lives are at breaking point but don’t know how they got to this point or how
to go about making a change for the better.
Kita Szpak is a Canadian author, happiness
expert, and speaker. She started writing 15 years ago, first telling her
stories to her three now-adult sons. Kita published her first children’s book
“You’re Special Wherever You Are” at the end of 2009. (The book was

Transitioning into the “big people” sphere, Kita co-authored with Monique
MacKinnon “Tipping Point to Happiness” in 2010. As a follow up to the
book’s release, Kita undertook a U.S. radio campaign focusing on happiness,
earning the title of “happiness expert” along the way. The book earned her

Talk on Happiness” and is an in-house happiness expert on The Small Business
