An interesting book that goes into the science behind what we interpret as happiness and several inaccuracies that can lead us into misinterpreting what we're remembering as happiness and/or what we expect from the future.
A very comical and entertaining journey that won't necessarily give you the "ah-ha" that's what I need to do to stumble into happiness, but instead will give you insight into how our emotions work and how we interpret our emotions aka happiness.
The author is well spoken, well read, and very knowledgeable as you would expect from a Harvard professor.
Ignore those reviews trashing this book... it meticuliously deconstructs the myths that we've been exposed to over the years on Global Warming (hint... it's not Global and we're no longer warming) and exposes the movement for what it really is... an attempted foot-hold for world governance crafted by the Europeans and hords of mislead/underinformed people over here that'll destroy our vitality, resilience, and ability to make real difference on human suffering.
Best nuggets of info from this book are not to be an authoritarian, teach financial responsibility with allowances divided into spend, save, and invest... and finally to just tell your kids you love them.
Save the $
While there may be some salvageable hints in this book, the theme of the idealistic student in the body of a hamster gets very annoying through the course of this book.
Fantastic book. If only I had it 10 years ago, but fear not, the concepts apply to a 27 year old or a 57 year old. I can't wait to start on the concepts! Buy this, listen to this, recommend this, and execute this!
