The edition you really want, and no other, is the Routledge Classics edition: The Conquest of Happiness (Routledge Classics)
Disregard any other edition you find, it is most likely not the edition you're looking for! (I found out the hard way...via a refund process)
I was disappointed that this book was not the original. After reading through the chapters, it appeared that this book was written by someone else summarising Bertrand's ideas; he uses his own style and reads like a self-help book. He does make it more current by giving examples from our time which is good. When I bought this book I expected it to be that written by Bertrand Russell and was interested in how he writes his thoughts. If I just wanted a summary of the ideas I could have found them on the internet or youtube.
Overall it was still a good read.
WRONGLY DESCRIBED IN THE ADVERTISEMENT AND TOTALLY MISREPRESENTED.
VERY WRONG AND POOR SERVICE FROM AMAZON.
If the edition you are looking at says "Timeless Concepts for Today" on the cover and is published by "Media Eight Self-Help Classics" then DO NOT BUY IT.
