Bertrand Russell's The Conquest of Happiness is a guide on living a happy life. Although it was of its time it was also ahead of its time. Russell believed that true happiness could only be achieved through thought and effort. A true self help classic before self help even existed. Our interpretation of The Conquest of Happiness illustrates the timeless nature of Russell’s insights by bringing them to life through over 50 modern case studies. This brilliant interpretation of The Conquest of Happiness is an entertaining accompaniment to one of the most famous books on popular philosophy ever written.
