In a world that thrives on competition and individual achievement, we are measuring and pursuing potential all wrong. By pursuing success in isolation - pushing others away as we push ourselves too hard - we are not just limiting our potential, we are becoming more stressed and disconnected than ever. In his highly anticipated follow-up to The Happiness Advantage, Achor reveals a better approach. Drawing on his work in 50 countries, he shows that success and happiness are not competitive sports.

I learned so much. I heard Shawn speak at our big company event this summer and ended up getting his book a few months later. It was everything i needed and more. Great studies, i learned a lot and i will be re listening because it was SO good. Highly recommend to anyone wanting to grow in their happiness as well as help those around them, with facts and statistics!
