A scientific study of happiness
on 21 December 2006
'Happiness' explores what happiness actually means from a biological and social viewpoint and how we can best attain happiness. This isn't a self-help book, but more of a mini psychology textbook.
I found it quite difficult to get into as it was slow at the beginning, but the chapter about brain activity and the small amount of info on Cognitive Behavioural Therapy were quite intersting.
I have recently read, 'Emotions' by Dylan Evans (also published in Oxford) and found this a lot more informative and easy to read.
Ok, just not brilliant.
