by Robert Mack

Many people think that happiness, like success, comes from getting what they want. But new evidence from positive psychology suggests that happiness is something else, or at least something more.

Presenting surprisingly practical wisdom in a playful and entertaining format, Mack delivers a simple-to-follow instruction manual, based in both science and personal experience, for living a happier, healthier and wealthier life.

He offers a scientifically proven blueprint for happiness that is based on positive action, instead of wishful thinking. He explores what it means to be happy and why many of us aren’t — even though culturally we are wealthier than ever.

He begins by dismantling two key myths about happiness: (a) the belief that life is about reaching a destination and (b) that success and getting what you want will lead to happiness. He then goes on to explain what happiness really is, where to look for it and how to nurture it.

He describes eight tried-and-true principles for realizing unconditional happiness and achieving the unparalleled success that comes with it. With a little effort, anyone — regardless of current circumstances — can discover new levels of joy and contentment on the inside and live a wonderfully prosperous and abundant life on the outside.
