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.”

“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
Nothing in life brings the contentment of inner happiness, not power, not money, not fame. This book presents a path to finding this special treasure. The author teaches a class at Harvard on the contents of this book. It has the biggest class enrollment on campus. It is a class I also taught for many years. I never had a student that did find the class useful. I was pleased to see our classes were much alike though we had no connection before I read this book.
