Read in January, 2012

Some people in their pursuit of happiness leave a trail of emotional and financial wreckage behind them, leaving those around them to wonder about human happiness, how it can best be found and whether extreme action leads to long lasting results. This book is an interesting look at many of those adages passed down to us through the generations - count your blessings, savour the moment, live in the present, variety is the spice of life - and the work done in psychology demonstrating which activities truly seem to bring about genuine happiness to people. Unfortunately, like everything else, it seems whichever of these activities you select, you have to work to establish them in your life and that takes motivation and commitment.
