Happiness by Design: Finding Pleasure and Purpose in Everyday Life
  • New

The pursuit of happiness has reached cult-like status, with scores of self-help books available on everything from learning to love yourself to thinking positively and living honestly. While some may have merits, it is important that advice is also based on some kind of evidence-based research.
Paul Dolan, author of Happiness by Design, is familiar with the rigours of research. He is a professor of behavioural science at the London School of Economics. Dolan approaches his book with an intellectual and engaging break down of not just what makes us happy, but why and how you can improve your levels of satisfaction with yourself and your role in the world.
Dolan provides context by bringing together diverse and extensive research. Simple insights ring true, such as the fact that finding a balance between pleasure and purpose in your pursuits will grant you more happiness.
And one of the keys to happiness? Don’t try too hard to pursue this somewhat-elusive emotion. Focus on the things that make you happy, and try not to get frustrated when you’re not basking in joy.
