What is happiness? Here, one of the world’s foremost behavioral scientists tackles this age-old question. He shows that there are many ways of achieving happiness; for example, there is the inherent happiness that comes with the love of a child; the competitive happiness of triumphing over your opponents; the sensual happiness of the hedonist. Rather than preaching a particular behavior or way of life, Morris provides knowledge that we can use, if we wish, to make ourselves happier.

A very short, light and easy read. A different type of book from the existing 'happiness' books.....yet grounded and easy to empathize with. Read full review

Review: The Nature of Happiness

User Review  - Papanikolaou - Goodreads

Read it in one day! Simply but not superficial! Descriptive but not wordy, with references in few scientific researches! Explains some things, but doesn't preach or give guidelines! Easy to read and highly recommended for those who like reading books about human nature and happiness! Read full review
