"Happiness Genes is...like reading an instruction manual that tells you how to reprogram your genes for happy life. It's time for new thinking. This book is your wake-up call." --Bruce Lipton, PhD, New York Times best-selling author of The Biology of Belief
"One of the most universal and enduring spiritual teachings is that happiness is inside, not outside, and that it is our birthright. Breakthroughs in the science of epigenetics affirms this wisdom. If you are seeking greater fulfillment and happiness in your life, do not deny yourself this important book." --Larry Dossey, MD, author of The Power of Premonitions and Healing Words
"Combining recent studies showing the epigenetic effects of changing our beliefs and behaviors with the wisdom of ancient spiritual traditions, Happiness Genes is a wide-ranging survey of the science of happiness. It asks the reader provocative questions, like considering how our behaviors might be affecting the genetic expression of our children. Baird and Nadel show you how to inventory your 'happiness assets,' those relationships, possessions and situations that contribute to your happiness, and then treat them like the valuable resource that they are. Wise and practical, the book is peppered with self-reflection exercises, and ends with a 28 day program that guides you in cleaning up everything in your life that stands between you and happiness. To understand the links between what happiness looks like at the molecular level in our cells, the happiness of entire nations, and how you can take lessons from everything in between to raise your own happiness level, this book is an excellent guide." --Dawson Church, best-selling author of The Genie in Your Genes
