's review

it was amazing
bookshelves: education-and-psych, nonfic

Ruth Whippman studies the inner workings of the American happiness market. Through Buddhism, Mormonism, Facebook, self help marketing, expensive "positive thinking" seminars, and parenting ideals, she narrates her experience with chasing happiness. The information is interesting; the British sarcasm makes it fun to read.
