 THE paperback and Kindle editions of Saipan resident Ken Shankweiler’s “Happiness is a Choice: So Why Not Make It?” are now available on amazon.com

Paperback copies of the book are also available at Joeten Susupe and Garapan.

In his book, Shankweiler shared his thoughts, ideas and personal experiences to motivate and inspire people to develop a “positive mindset” that can help them make the right decisions.

“It’s really up to us if we really want to be happy,” he said, adding that we should “enjoy here and now” instead of whining about the past and worrying about the future. 

A longtime resident of Saipan, Shankweiler runs a communications consultancy company. He wants to “touch the lives of as many people as possible in a productive and positive way so as to help them experience the true pleasure of being happy the majority of time, as I have been so blessed to have experienced.”

According to Amazon, Shankweiler was born in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and served one tour in the U.S. Navy. He then focused on higher education, obtaining degrees in psychology and electrical engineering.

“For the next 35 years, he worked in the corporate world, holding various positions at a number of Fortune 500 companies.”

He and his wife, Flordelisa, live on Saipan, as does his son, Capt. Jason Shankweiler, and his family. His daughter, Lisa Thomas, lives with her family in Virginia.
