Description

Can we really learn to be happy? Yes, we can. Each semester, nearly 1,400 students sign up for Harvard professor Tal Ben-Shahar's life-changing class "How to Get Happy". Currently it's the hottest course at Harvard, taken by 20 percent of graduates.

In Happier, Professor Ben-Shahar brings the ideas of the Ivory Tower to Main Street, distilling the lessons and exercises from his course into an audio trove of practical wisdom. Grounded in the Positive Psychology movement, based on years of researching the works of scientists, academics, and philosophers, Happier emphasizes the importance of pursuing a life of both pleasure and meaning. Lessons, exercises, and "Happiness Boosters" cover self-esteem, empathy, friendship, love, achievement, creativity, spirituality, and humor.

Questions will help listeners identify activities that will make them happier immediately, as they apply what they've learned to school, work, and personal relationships. You'll discover that happiness, not money, is the ultimate currency, that we can't be happy unless we first give ourselves permission to be human, and that happiness isn't so elusive after all.

Great Book

Great Book. It has changed my perceptions on life. Much of it is common sense when you think about it. But many times, we have to clean the cob webs from our mind to see it by readin a well written and well read book like this. Very enjoyable.

Simple and Engaging

I listened to this audio book on the drive to and from school. Tal-Ben Shahar's work is seminal to positive psychology and the the inner work of happiness.

The reader does a fantastic job conveying Shahar's passion and insight.

Love the book, annoyed by the "mother" ...

I enjoyed the book. The reason I didn't rate 4 or higher is that a motherly figure popped out every now and then. She summarizes the section I just listened and her content and tone are as if she is talking to a baby! Just recently started listening to it for the second time, then the annoying and lecturing "mother" showed up again, reminding me of the part I strongly dislike the book. Not sure the hardcopy book or the kindle version has the same lecturing "person"

Big disappointment

I was excited to read this book on happiness. I had been obsessed with the topic 7 years ago and had found some gems, I thought that this would further deepen my knowledge given that the author had a super popular class on happiness at Harvard. However I've found books like Stumbling on Happiness, and even another Harvard class called "What's the right thing to do" to be much more conducive to really understand how to be happy. This book just tells you to find activities that are pleasurable and bring long term benefits. It tried to get people to seek or create happiness. I strongly believe the opposite is true, happiness is something people are born with. We all start our lives happy, yet it's our biases, and overestimation of how good and bad different outcomes are that make us unhappy. Go ahead and read the book if you'd like but then please go pick up other books on Happiness and take all of them with a grain of salt.

Packed with Information

This book was jam packed with information and would probably be best read instead of listened to. It was full of ideas and quizzes that need to be absorbed and seen or written down. If you are primarily an auditory learner, it would be fine.

Smart, current and exactly what I wanted!

This audio book, while it may be a little slow to pick up- has made a huge difference in how I think about the world. Being a highly educated, and continuously questioning artist, I have been down many paths in search of truth. This book offers pragmatic, research based answers for spiritual and existential questions that make us inherently human. I am very glad the author chose to do the work to put this together. It has inspired me to focus more on the role work plays in my life.

Compelling, easy listen

I recommend this book as a way to gain perspective on one’s journey towards a fulfilling life. Some criticisms: The narrator reads in an overly enthusiastic manner, much like one would read a book to a child—it can get annoying. The author talks a lot about himself. Despite these things, I enjoyed the book overall.

For School it was great!

This book was one that I needed for a course that I am taking in college.
I bought the hard copy of the book but was having a hard time finding time to read it.

Thank goodness is was here. For I listen to it on my way to school and I feel like I get more out of it by listening.
