How do you solve the problem of human happiness? It's a subject that has occupied some of the greatest philosophers of all time, from Aristotle to Paul McKenna - but how do we sort the good ideas from the terrible ones? Over the past five years, Oliver Burkeman has travelled to some of the strangest outposts of the 'happiness industry' in an attempt to find out. In Help!, Oliver presents his findings. It's a witty and thought-provoking exploration that punctures many of self-help's most popular myths, while also offering clear-headed, practical and often counterintuitive advice on a range of subjects, from stress, procrastination and insomnia to wealth, laughter, time management and creativity. It doesn't claim to have solved the problem of human happiness. But it might just bring us one step closer.

Review:

Addictive, wise and very funny. Burkeman never takes himself too seriously, but the rest of us should. -- Tim Harford, author of THE UNDERCOVER ECONOMIST Filters the actually-quite-useful from the potentially-very-harmful-nonsense . . . quite inspirational. -- Mark Watson, comedian

Book Description:
