Editorial Reviews

“Outstanding, cutting-edge, and profound.  If you’re going to read one book on happiness, this is the one.”—Nassim Nicholas Taleb, bestselling author of The Black Swan and Antifragile “Happiness by Design is the best kind of psychology book: the ideas are fascinating, understanding them will make your life happier and more meaningful, and Dolan expresses them beautifully. Whether you’re a novice or a voracious consumer of happiness research, Happiness by Design hits all the right notes.”—Adam Alter, bestselling author of Drunk Tank Pink “Dolan gives a comprehensive overview of the science of happiness and useful tips to achieve it. In his quest to explain what makes us happy, Dolan touches on a powerful idea: happiness need not be pursued, simply rediscovered. In other words, sources of pleasure and purpose are all around us, if only one knows where to look.”—Scientific American
