Read in January, 2007

This is a great book written by Tal Ben-Shahar who is also known as the "Harvard Happiness Professor"--he taught the most popular course at Harvard University, "Positive Psychology". This book inspired Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh to make his life choices and build a company around the philosophy that customers and employees happiness comes first, and profits will follow. This same philosophy can be found in some innovative approaches to education, which focuses on the students passions and happiness, and the grades follow.

The book comes directly from his "Positive Psychology" course and shares insights on happiness and how you can learn to be happy, also providing exercises to complete throughout the book. Particularly timely during these tough times!
