really liked it

Book fascinating, very interesting and well-written concerning the happiness, all the studies from psychology and neuroscience that have made it a major topic and the way in which it is used, economically speaking. The weight of research on well-being in the society in which we live and happiness in strictly economic terms is something fundamental, but we often ignore it.

Libro affascinante, molto interessante e ben scritto riguardante la felicitá, tutti gli studi che a partire dalla psicologia e le neuroscienze ne hanno fatto un argomento dibattuto e il mondo in cui viene usata economicamente parlando. Il peso delle ricerche riguardanti il benessere nella societá in cui viviamo e la felicitá in termini strettamente economici sono qualcosa di fondamentale, ma che spesso ignoriamo.
