Epicurus, a Greek philosopher who lived 2300 years ago, suggested that we all seek happiness which he defined as having a healthy body and tranquil psyche. This book explores Epicurus' way to happiness, including the problems that Epicurus tells us we will encounter trying to achieve happiness; the directions that Epicurus offers to help us to achieve happiness; and finally the strategies that Epicurus offers to help us to overcome these problems and to successfully follow his directions.   This book is part of the series 'Ways of the World' in which the teachings of the founders of different religions and philosophies are explored to determine: the destination that we are told to seek; the directions offered to help us to reach that destination; problems that we are told will hinder us on our way; and finally strategies that are offered to help us to overcome these problems, and to successfully follow the directions. This format not only helps to better understand each way, but also makes it easier to compare the various ways.
  Gary attempts to report the results of his explorations in an impartial manner and does not necessarily agree with every aspect of the way and its associated concepts and beliefs.
