Description

Solve for Happy is a startlingly original book about creating and maintaining happiness, written by a top Google executive with an engineer's training and fondness for thoroughly analyzing a problem.

In 2004 Mo Gawdat, a remarkable thinker whose gifts had landed him top positions in half a dozen companies and who - in his spare time - had created significant wealth, realized that he was desperately unhappy. A lifelong learner, he attacked the problem as an engineer would, examining all the provable facts and scrupulously following logic. When he was finished, he had discovered the equation for enduring happiness.

Ten years later that research saved him from despair when his college-age son, Ali - also intellectually gifted - died during routine surgery. In dealing with the loss, Mo found his mission: he would pull off the type of moonshot that he and his Google [X] colleagues were always aiming for - he would help 10 million people become happier by pouring his happiness principles into a book and spreading its message around the world.

One of Solve for Happy's key premises is that happiness is a default state. If we shape expectations to acknowledge the full range of possible events, unhappiness is on its way to being defeated. To steer clear of unhappiness traps, we must dispel the six illusions that cloud our thinking (e.g., the illusion of time, of control, and of fear); overcome the brain's seven deadly defects (e.g., the tendency to exaggerate, label, and filter); and embrace five ultimate truths (e.g., change is real, now is real, unconditional love is real).

By means of several highly original thought experiments, Mo helps listeners find enduring contentment by questioning some of the most fundamental aspects of their existence.

The best book about happiness ever

This man does not claim to be a guru. His ideas are there to be challenged and explored, but I loved his delivery, his voice is delightful and his ideas made me think. It was a wonderful listen.

Great story, audio quality disappoints

I started this book in paperback but switched to Audio because I noticed that I couldn’t get myself to sit down and read.

I love the story but I notice that it’s almost impossible to hear him well if you’re on the road..

@Audible, is there be any chance that the overall audio level is increased on this book?

Great book!

The book provides an understanding of life principles and happiness in ways that most books cannot convey. The engineering approach to happiness mixed with an emotional story of who and what inspired the author makes this book one that anyone can relate to. I would recommend this to anyone. Thanks Mo!

A must read..so moving!

Würden Sie Solve for Happy noch mal anhören? Warum?

I would read it again and again in order to remember the important information Mo Gawdat gives us. This book is mind-blowing. It gives us facts but is also very emotional and Mo Gawdat is a wise, funny, intelligent person who interweaves his personal story of losing his son Ali with scientific research, never losing the focus on what is really important in life.

Was mochten Sie an der Handlung am liebsten?

I loved the way Mo Gawdat teaches us the essential lessons of life, what is really important or should be important to us and that most problems are just mind-based and constructed by ourselves and our education etc. I loved the powerful message and that he is such a strong man writing such a powerful and useful book although the worst thing in the world, losing a loved one, happened to him. If you are interested in these topics, this book is a MUST READ and it has the power to change you!

Gab es im Hörbuch einen Moment, der Sie ganz besonders berührt hat?

I cried so much after chapter 14 in which he tells us why giving is the only way of receiving, why we even should give to people we don't like and that everything comes back. So powerful and wise....if everyone behaved like that, the world would be a happy place and paradise on earth...

Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

Everyone should read this book, I highly recommend it. It's worth the money and even more..it's a gift and I am grateful to have found it and listened to it. Thank you so much, Mo Gawdat...!

Very touching- excellent reflection of some facts of life

Many people - same as I - do know all the facts and all truth described in the book already. Hardly anybody though is going through life as if he payed any attention to those facts. Mo’s conclusions have worked as an eye opener for me. There is a lot of striking logic to many of his thoughts. It made me rethink my life too. I love his approach.
