View all copies of this ISBN edition:
The key tenet of THE HOW OF HAPPINESS is that every human being has a happiness 'set point' which, depending on how high or low it is, can determine how positive or negative they feel. This book offers a practical approach to help readers increase their set point, and find a level of happiness above that which they would normally feel, and feel more satisfaction in life. Based on scientific research and trials, this is a groundbreaking book that offers a practical plan to enable readers to achieve a more positive outlook at home, at work and in their personal life. It will also be of enormous benefit to the hundreds of thousands of people who suffer from depression in the UK as it provides the tools to feel better about life.

About the Author:
Sonja Lyubomirsky is Professor of Psychology at the University of California - one of the youngest people to attain the rank of full Professor in the University's history. She lives in Santa Monica with her family.
"Finally we have a self-help book from a reputable scientist whose advice is based on the best experimental data." -Daniel Gilbert, author of "Stumbling on Happiness" "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" "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" "The right place to look for science-based advice on how to become happier." -Martin Seligman, author of "Learned Optimism"
