This is one of those books that everyone should be required to read. I was intrigued by the scientific research done on being a happy person and wanted to know the psychology behind it. I started college out as a pysch major so these topics really interest me. Every thing discussed in this book is common sense stuff and nothing new but it's all organized and communicated in a way that makes sense and makes you want to have a better life. It has really helped me examine my priorities, look at my daily actions and see if they align with who I want to be, and motivated me to set more goals for myself. This isn't a book about how to make you happy, but how to make you happier. And who doesn't want to be a happier person?
