Book Description

Bertrand Russell's The Conquest of Happiness is a guide on living a happy life. Although it was of its time it was also ahead of its time. Russell believed that true happiness could only be achieved through thought and effort. A true self help classic before self help even existed. Our interpretation of The Conquest of Happiness illustrates the timeless nature of Russell’s insights by bringing them to life through over 50 modern case studies. This brilliant interpretation of The Conquest of Happiness is an entertaining accompaniment to one of the most famous books on popular philosophy ever written.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Russell's text February 4, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is merely a commentary on Bertrand Russell's work, not an original Russell text. Be forewarned if you are looking for original material!

5.0 out of 5 stars Try a Little Russell April 12, 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Here's the empathetic Bertrand Russell trying to assuage people's misery, labouring as we all do under the weight of wholly obscene social relations wherein we have little save insecurity and pain. His weakness is that he fails to direct our attention to the source problem, namely the continued existence of monopoly capitalism/imperialism. He does show us how we can make the best of our lives under this archaic system that needs to be swept into the dustbin of history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Book! February 16, 2012
You can tell by the last couple of reviews that this is not the Russell text and it does not claim to be. If you read the description before you buy the book you would probably figure this out. Sorry to be so negative I am just very tired of all these kind of reviews on Amazon.
'nuff said.
