    Story
    (100)

    Applying cutting-edge research in the field of positive psychology - the scientific principles taught in his wildly popular course at Harvard University - Ben-Shahar takes us off the impossible pursuit of perfection and directs us to the way to happiness, richness, and true fulfillment. He shows us the freedom derived from not trying to do it all right all the time and the real lessons that failure and painful emotions can teach us.

    "A perfect waste of time"
    Overall

    This is a stupid, superficial, self-help book. A total waste of time. I am surprised that the author is so popular. Don't bother to figure that one out.

  • Finkler Question

    The Finkler Question is a scorching story of friendship and loss and of the wisdom and humanity of maturity. Funny, furious, unflinching, this extraordinary novel shows one of our finest writers at his brilliant best. Julian Treslove and Sam Finkler are old school friends. Despite a prickly relationship and very different lives, they've never quite lost touch with each other - or with their former teacher, Libor Sevick.

    Darwin8u says: "Meh. This novel ends with a whimper."
    "Superb wit"
    Overall

    One of the best reads of the year. I loved it. It's a classic piece, up there with the best English satirists. Timely.
