Does not inspire the pursuit of happiness,
This review is from: The Happiness Equation: The Surprising Economics of Our Most Valuable Asset (Hardcover)
The author is obviously knowledgable about the subject matter, and combines theories and research from numerous areas and publications to make his point. But this creates an overly academic book, that fails to grip and loses way before the main point is reached.
There are interesting observations from well referenced sources, that make a point about modern life and the pursuit of things that can bring happiness ... rather than wealth, goods, fashions, (possibly) family etc. The somewhat surprising conclusions are well argued ... but it's just not engaging. This is far too dry a book to describe successful pursuit of happiness.
