9780147516305: Happiness by Design: Change What You Do, Not How You Think

Bold and original. Daniel Kahneman, PhD, bestselling author of Thinking Fast and Slow
There are a slew of books on the market dictating programs for achieving happiness, but Happiness by Design is the first to explain that happiness ultimately depends upon our experience of pleasure and purpose over time and everyone has their own optimal balance. Combining the latest insights from economics and psychology, renowned behavior expert Paul Dolan, PhD, shows readers how to integrate his ground breaking paradigm into a practical plan for deciding, designing, and doing the things that bring them true happiness."

Review:

"Outstanding, cutting-edge, and profound. If you're going to read one book on happiness, this is the one."
--Nassim Nicholas Taleb, bestselling author of "The Black Swan" and "Antifragile"
""Happiness by Design" is the best kind of psychology book: the ideas are fascinating, understanding them will make your life happier and more meaningful, and Dolan expresses them beautifully. Whether you're a novice or a voracious consumer of happiness research, Happiness by Design hits all the right notes."
--Adam Alter, bestselling author of "Drunk Tank Pink"
"Dolan gives a comprehensive overview of the science of happiness and useful tips to achieve it. In his quest to explain what makes us happy, Dolan touches on a powerful idea: happiness need not be pursued, simply rediscovered. In other words, sources of pleasure and purpose are all around us, if only one knows where to look."
--"Scientific American"

Review:

'Few books change one's life; in 48 hours this has improved mine ... Anyone who wonders if they are living their lives as fully as they might will find ideas worth thinking about in this engaging, persuasive book.' (The Sunday Times)

'Dolan makes a persuasive case that happiness might really be simple. His book is a powerful reminder not to get caught up in overthinking things, but to focus instead on maximising what actually delivers joy ... and most of us would benefit from listening to him.' (The Guardian)

'Outstanding, cutting-edge, and profound. If you're going to read one book on happiness, this is the one.' (Nassim Nicholas Taleb, bestselling author of The Black Swan and Antifragile)
