Fantastic, enlightening, practical

5

I loved this book and have recommended it to all my friends. I recently bought it as a gift for my brother for his birthday. I loved that it had practical ideas you could easily apply in everyday life day to really make a difference. I found it especially helpful in the grieving process.

"Finally we have a self-help book from a reputable scientist whose advice is based on the best experimental data... The How of Happiness is smart, fun, and interesting - and unlike almost every other book on the same shelf, it also happens to be true." -Daniel Gilbert, Harvard University professor of psychology and author of Stumbling on Happiness "A guide to sustaining your newfound contentment." -Psychology Today

"Lyubomirsky's central point is clear: a significant portion of what is called happiness . . . is up for grabs. Taking some pages out of the positive psychology playbook, she coaches readers on how to snag it." -The New York Review of Books

"Is lasting happiness attainable or a pipe dream? For the last eighteen years, University of California-Riverside professor of psychology Sonja Lyubomirsky has studied this question, and what she reports might even sway pessimists." -U.S. News & World Report

"The right place to look for science-based advice on how to become happier." -Martin Seligman, author of Learned Optimism
