9780071492393: Happier: Learn the Secrets to Daily Joy and Lasting Fulfillment

Can You Learn to Be Happy?

YES . . . according to the teacher of Harvard University’s most popular and life-changing course. One out of every five Harvard students has lined up to hear Tal Ben-Shahar’s insightful and inspiring lectures on that ever-elusive state: HAPPINESS.

HOW?
Grounded in the revolutionary “positive psychology” movement, Ben-Shahar ingeniously combines scientific studies, scholarly research, self-help advice, and spiritual enlightenment. He weaves them together into a set of principles that you can apply to your daily life. Once you open your heart and mind to Happier ’s thoughts, you will feel more fulfilled, more connected . . . and, yes, HAPPIER.

“Dr. Ben-Shahar, one of the most popular teachers in Harvard’s recent history, has written a personal, informed, and highly enjoyable primer on how to become happier. It would be wise to take his advice.”
--Ellen J. Langer, author of Mindfulness and On Becoming an Artist

“This fine book shimmers with a rare brand of good sense that is imbedded in scientific knowledge about how to increase happiness. It is easy to see how this is the backbone of the most popular course at Harvard today."
--Martin E. P. Seligman, author of Authentic Happiness

About the Author:

Tal Ben-Shahar is the New York Times Bestselling author of Happier. He taught the most popular course in Harvard and is currently writing, consulting, and lecturing worldwide on positive psychology and leadership. He holds his Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and BA in Philosophy and Psychology from Harvard.

From AudioFile:

One of Harvards most popular lecturers turns his talents to an involving audio. He succeeds largely because he knows how to question. He asks listeners to reflect not if they are happy, but how they can become happier. Throughout the program concrete questions encourage self-examination on what gives ones life meaning, pleasure, and strength. These are suggested after chapters that merge research with personal and anecdotal stories to explain strategies for reviewing ones life. The book, based on the field of positive psychology, has found an upbeat reader. Jeff Woodmans reading has a narrative drive that captures the authors affirming ideas.
