“The mood-tracking technologies, sentiment analysis algorithms and stress-busting meditation techniques are put to work in the service of certain political and economic interests.”
William Davies, The Happiness Industry: How the Government and Big Business Sold Us Well-Being

“Positive psychology, which repeats the mantra that happiness is a personal ‘choice’, is as a result largely unable to provide the exit from consumerism and egocentricity that its gurus sense many people are seeking.”
William Davies, The Happiness Industry: How the Government and Big Business Sold Us Well-Being

William Davies, The Happiness Industry: How the Government and Big Business Sold Us Well-Being
