“The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom” by Jonathan Haidt


Jonathan Haidt is a brilliant and engaging Social Psychologist who combines ancient wisdom with scientific research to study how the mind works.  Have you ever wondered why you have difficulty sticking to the plans you make?  Have you wondered why all the activities or accomplishments you strive for don’t actually bring happiness?  Have you ever wondered how to live a more meaningful life?  Dr. Haidt delves into these topics and so much more in this book.  If you don’t have time to read, check out YouTube, where you can find his TED talks and other lectures.  He is both interesting and very humorous.
