Dr Tim Sharp has been researching, writing and speaking about happiness for decades, as one of Australia's leaders of the positive psychology movement. But in recent years, he's realised that maybe he's been a bit more lost than he wanted to admit. And that might actually be a good thing.

A large and growing body of research highlights the value of getting 'lost' to improve our resilience and our mental health. That could mean literally wandering outdoors in nature or letting our minds do the wandering by sitting with negative thoughts and unpleasant emotions, rather than constantly trying to fight or push them away.

Packed with psychological insights, practical tips and personal stories from Tim's life, Lost and Found is a new kind of self-help book that invites all of you to the table: the bad and the good, your failures and your successes, challenges and breakthroughs. By sitting with discomfort, we allow ourselves to become more authentic and vulnerable - and by becoming lost, we find our true selves.

'Dr Happy's book is like having a friendly tour guide: he's been to the dark places, he's been lost and found his way home again. Tim sharing his experience and wisdom in a relatable way made me feel okay with the days I have felt profoundly lost in my own life. It's beautiful.' - Alison Daddo

'Lost and Found is bursting with enough lightbulb moments to power a city. Buy a copy for yourself and your loved ones. This is the path to a life well lived.' - Tracey Spicer

'Dr Tim Sharp is the living embodiment of blazing an authentic trail through the forest of life. These pages are profoundly transformative.' - Dr Rebecca Ray, bestselling author of Setting Boundaries

'As a person who spent many of their early years lost, I can fully appreciate the potential of this wonderful book to change many lives for the better. Tim's combination of personal and professional experience, innovative analytics and wide-ranging research weaves a powerful narrative that is as compelling as it is practical.' - Dr Paul Callaghan, bestselling author of The Dreaming Path

'Dr Tim Sharp's new book encourages you to take the road less travelled. He explains through story and science how, when we detour into the unknown, we grow stronger and flourish.' - Sophie Scott, broadcaster and journalist
