In this groundbreaking book, Matthieu Ricard makes a passionate case for happiness as a goal that deserves as least as much energy as any other in our lives.
Wealth? Fitness? Career success? How can we possibly place these above true and lasting well-being? Drawing from works of fiction and poetry, Western philosophy, Buddhist beliefs, scientific research, and personal experience, Ricard weaves an inspirational and forward-looking account of how we can begin to rethink our realities in a fast-moving modern world. With its revelatory lessons and exercises, Happiness is an eloquent and stimulating guide to a happier life.

This book is written poorly and is unclear. That may be partly due to a poor translation. I found some useful information and think the author has something to say.

I really enjoyed this book, more so than many others on the topic. It has a really interesting mesh of both Eastern and Western views of happiness with simple, practical advice.
