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.

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

Review: The Nature of Happiness

User Review  - Tara_ - Goodreads

This book was okay, not the best book I've ever read about happiness. Some will enjoy the fact that it has no 'psychobable'. I found it to be a very unremarkable book, however it does give you the basic facts. Read full review
