Description

This is not just another happiness audiobook. In Happiness by Design, happiness and behavior expert Paul Dolan combines the latest insights from economics and psychology to illustrate that in order to be happy we must behave happy. Our happiness is experiences of both pleasure and purpose over time and it depends on what we actually pay attention to. Using what Dolan calls deciding, designing, and doing, we can overcome the biases that make us miserable and redesign our environments to make it easier to experience happiness, fulfillment, and even health. With uncanny wit and keen perception, Dolan reveals what we can do to find our unique optimal balance of pleasure and purpose, offering practical advice on how to organize our lives in happiness - promoting ways and fresh insights into how we feel, including why:

  • Having kids reduces pleasure but gives us a massive dose of purpose
  • Gaining weight won't necessarily make us unhappier, but being too ambitious might
  • A quiet neighborhood is more important than a big house

Vividly rendering intriguing research and lively anecdotal evidence, Happiness by Design offers an absorbing, thought-provoking, new paradigm for fans of Stumbling on Happiness and The How of Happiness.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

It's a Must

Simple idea behind happiness that, once you hear it, makes all the sense in the world.

Practical evidence based approach to happiness

Thinking is not enough. It is more about doing and changing in what we do.

Somewhat interesting tips

While the book provides some interesting tips on nudging towards happiness, the philosophical part seems very light and poor. "Sentimental hedonism" is what it says: sentimental and hedonistic, just the two things on which our culture is already embedded in. The part about saliency is very interesting, however... The narration is monotonic.

Design Flaws

The revelation of happiness being an individual balance of pleasure and purpose was highly insightful, but subtle clues throughout reveal the biases of a liberal academic. How the author can rely, as often as he does, on evolution to understand why we're the way we are yet present that a more equal society is happier one is a bit ironic. Evolution exploits differences to make advancements which is perfectly counter to the push for equality. I appreciated that the author does caution the reader when there are confounds that may affect interpretation of some study results, but there are other places where he could do a better job of identifying where further research could shed light on causation rather than just offering his own opinion about it as the only one available.

Truly unremarkable and trivial

Very lackluster audio, both in recording quality as well as speaker.

The content of the book is also pretty boring and generic. There is almost no info to take away, no direct learnings. It is, like so many American pseudo science self help books, full of entirely anecdotal or biased info.

In the vibe of the book, the time spent listening to this felt neuter purposeful, nor enjoyable.
