|New from||Used from|
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete?

"In this brief, practical, and important book, Braco Pobric offers a blueprint for bringing about positive change in your life. Read it and, more importantly, apply it!"
- Tal Ben Shahar, PhD, author of the international bestsellers Happier and Being Happy; formerly Professor of the largest course at Harvard University--"Positive Psychology"
"Scientists who study happiness have conducted hundreds of brilliant scientific studies (many of which are summarized in this book), yet scientists rarely communicate their findings to the general public in an accessible manner. In this book, Braco Pobric picks up where scientists left off and provides an outstanding tutorial on the practical application of scientific research to change habits and increase happiness."
-Chad Burton, PhD, Social Scientist
From the Author
"The Buddha said all things change. They do not, however, always change for the better. Yet by harnessing the incredible power of virtuous habits, the inevitable transformations we experience can become more wholesome, and hence we can become happier people. In this elegant, practical, and scientifically grounded book, Braco Pobric shows us the many ways skillful change is possible in every area of our lives. We are changing anyway; why not make it for the better?"
"Happiness, health, wellbeing, productivity, meaning--we all long for increases in each of these arenas at various times, yet longing is never enough. Thinking about change is not enough. Talking about change changes nothing. We must actually take the steps to change habits that inhibit our forward movement and choose instead habits that potentiate our growth. This book, direct, clear and encouraging, cuts to the essence of successful habit formation...and it is through this formation that we grow. Anyone who is ready to craft a life that is richer, healthier and happier, will find the tools in this book to do so."
"Braco Pobric's Habits and Happiness is an inspiring and informative book. One can find motivation in Braco's personal experience of habits and through his offering of the research concerning how habits are formed and how they support or harm us. The book also provides ideas of useful habits we can all implement and practical steps towards forming and maintaining them."
- Deborah R. Cohen, MAPP, author of Journey to Inner Space: A Children's Yoga Book

Margaret H. Greenberg, co-author of Profit from the Positive: Proven Leadership Strategies to Boost Productivity and Transform Your Business, with a foreword by Tom Rath
From the inspirational opening quote by Aristotle (“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”) to the final action worksheet (“List all of your new habits, and identify reminders for each one.”) Braco’s book offers the road map with a direct route to positive change. Pick it up, and experience it for yourself!
If you are looking for help changing your habits, I would read/use the process and tools presented in Habits and Happiness.
Thank You Braco for writing this!
