Product description

Review

"Packed with fascinating facts about the science of happiness and rich examples of how she improves her life through changes small and big The Happiness Project made me happier by just reading it."--Amy Scribner, Bookpage

"An enlightening, laugh-aloud read. . . . Filled with open, honest glimpses into [Rubin's] real life, woven together with constant doses of humor."--Terry Hong, Christian Science Monitor

"For those who generally loathe the self-help genre, Rubin's book is a breath of peppermint-scented air. Well-researched and sharply written. . . . Rubin takes an orderly, methodical approach to forging her own path to a happier state of mind."--Kim Crow, Cleveland Plain Dealer

"Practical and never preachy . . . the rare self-help tome that doesn't feel shameful to read."--Daily Beast

From the Back Cover

"Wonderful. . . . Rubin shows how you can be happier, starting right now, with small, actionable steps accessible to everyone." --Julie Morgenstern, New York Times bestselling author of Organizing from the Inside Out

Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany one rainy afternoon in the unlikeliest of places: a city bus. "The days are long, but the years are short," she realized. "Time is passing, and I'm not focusing enough on the things that really matter." In that moment, she decided to dedicate a year to her happiness project.

In this lively and compelling account--now updated with new material by the author--Rubin chronicles her adventures during the twelve months she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, current scientific research, and lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. Among other things, she found that novelty and challenge are powerful sources of happiness; that money can help buy happiness, when spent wisely; that outer order contributes to inner calm; and that the very smallest of changes can make the biggest difference.

"An enlightening, laugh-aloud read."--Christian Science Monitor

This updated edition includes:

- A new extensive interview with the author

- Secrets of Adulthood

- An excerpt from Gretchen Rubin's new book, Better Than Before: What I Learned About Making and Breaking Habits--to Sleep More, Quit Sugar, Procrastinate Less, and Generally Build a Happier Life
