Joy is stamped on coffee mugs, sewn onto decorative pillows, even displayed on dish soap bottles. But what if there is a deeper power and purpose to this mighty virtue? Through vulnerable storytelling, a difficult diagnosis, and a good dose of humor, Margaret Feinberg reveals how joy is more than whimsy. It's the weapon you can use to fight life's battles.
