About the Author:

Darrin McMahon is the author of Enemies of the Enlightenment: The French Counter-Enlightenment and the Making of Modernity. McMahon is currently a professor at Florida State University and writes regularly for various publications including the Wall Street Journal, the Boston Globe, and Daedalus.

Review:

McMahon shows how the Ancient Greeks considered happiness a gift of the gods, whereas we now view it as a right ... His method made this reader shout aloud with joy - and happiness was contained for me within nothing less than the canon The Times
