*Simple, yet profound*

With his meta-analysis of happiness research, author David Niven distills the science of happiness into 100 happily bite-sized gems. Each chapter can be read in less than three minutes and contains a human-speak summary of the particular research finding, as well as advice and an example to make the finding more accessible and applicable. Even just a look at the chapter titles (including ones like: "It's Not What Happened, It's How You Think About What Happened," "Do Things You Are Good At," "You Always Have a Choice," and "Realize That Complete Satisfaction Does Not Exist") provides quick, yet potent, pointers to the path of happiness. This book is akin to the Cliff Notes version of finding happiness--the essence of the comprehensive story is all here. David has found a way to make the top 100 findings of happiness research profoundly simple to understand and apply. Now, that's something to smile about. :)
