A timeless summary of everything scientific research has proven you ever need to know to live your best life, The Serious Pursuit of Happiness is written as a potentially life-changing combination of 10% textbook, 80% happiness roadmap, and 10% action planner. Just 3 hours of reading time is all you need to invest to learn what you need to know to live the happiest and most fulfilling life possible! Here's why: Most people, when asked if they would like to be happy, reply along these lines: “Sure. Just tell me what to do!” And that’s exactly what this book does. Rich in prescribed actions and rooted in comprehensive research – Miller's book is unparalleled in its ability to help the reader learn exactly what to do – and what not to do – to flourish and thrive – beginning now. Deliberately designed to be a prescriptive, one-stop happiness shop, this classic and timeless “how to” book is the ultimate self-help guide to well being – containing over 400 specific, practical, powerful, and proven strategies and actions that individuals can begin to easily implement on their own – immediately – to live happier, more rewarding, and more meaningful lives. The promise of Miller’s book is that readers around the world can read one small, companion-sized book and learn literally everything that has been proven about specifically how people should think, how they should act, what kind of person they should be, and what exactly they should actually do to flourish and thrive to live as “happily ever after” as is possible. Intended to be both a “quick read” as well as a lifetime companion guidebook, this one compact-sized book is packed with the results from Miller’s over 10 years of “researching the research.” This in-depth process included a summarization of over 40 years of happiness research including hundreds of studies by leading psychologists the world over, the findings of the revolutionary and still-emerging new science of Positive Psychology, recent advances by biologists and neurologists, and the ancient wisdom of revered philosophers – all deftly synthesized down into six powerful and proven imperatives. Simply organized into a three phase “journey” to a happier life that is easy to understand and follow – The Serious Pursuit of Happiness is a ‘must-read’ for individuals IF they are serious about learning exactly what to do to invite and then keep happiness in their life. It not only lights the paths to follow by spelling out in detail the proven actions to add to their day-to-day life to flourish – it also highlights the myths and faulty thinking that are barriers to achieving lasting meaning, fulfillment, and joy - and need to be avoided. For companies and other organizations with enlightened leaders, Miller's book offers an opportunity to "do well by doing good" for their employees by giving them the gift of a potential lifetime of happiness - while also helping to enable them to perform at a higher level. Research has shown the following to be true: * Psychologically well employees consistently exhibit higher levels of engagement, performance, productivity, loyalty, and commitment. * Between 10% and 25% of job performance variance is correlated with overall well being. * Employees who are unhappy in life are unlikely to find job satisfaction at work. * Happier employees have reduced absenteeism, reduced "presenteeism," less stress, and reduced turnover while working with increased energy, creativity, innovation, and dedication. They display an increased ability to cope with life's realities and have an improved perspective on why they are working so hard - and why they should be if they aren't now. And they are healthier. Any and all companies and organizations who want to maximize their investment in human capital, attract and retain the best and the brightest, and remain competitive in the global world of today and tomorrow should consider making this book required reading for all stakeholders.

About the Author:

Henry S. Miller is an internationally-known author, trainer, speaker, and transformation consultant. Miller’s new book, The Serious Pursuit of Happiness: Everything You Need to Know to Flourish and Thrive, is a relentlessly prescriptive self improvement book dedicated to helping people actually flourish and thrive - instead of just existing - so that they can live the happiest and most fulfilling lives possible for them as a result. As President of The Henry Miller Group LLC, Miller specializes in helping companies and organizations of all types “do well by doing good” – helping them to improve overall performance and productivity specifically by increasing their employees’ levels of overall well being. Miller's work offers a holistic antidote to today’s stress and time pressures and an opportunity for people to dramatically improve the quality of their lives – beginning immediately and lasting forever – IF they are serious about flourishing and thriving. This fourth career marks Miller’s transition from organization-level transformation work to focusing directly at a personal level on individual well being and its positive effect on individual performance and productivity among many other benefits. His work not only increases the overall level of well-being for individuals, but, as a result, also improves the bottom-line of the companies and organizations where the individuals contribute. Miller’s background includes 20 years as an organization transformation consultant where he personally helped guide the successful transformation “journeys” of private and public sector organizations to become 21st century “world class” organizations. He was also a Senior Consultant with the Tom Peters Group where he was privileged to have conducted leadership training, speaking, and consulting for thousands of managers at all levels. His first career spanned over 20 years in corporate America at the IBM Corporation. In addition to his current membership in the International Positive Psychology Association (IPPA), over the years Miller has been a member of various professional organizations including ODN, BAODN, ASTD and has been published in the San Jose/Silicon Valley Business Journal. He is a Cornell University graduate with an economics, psychology, and engineering background.
