About the Author

TAL BEN-SHAHAR, himself a Harvard graduate, is one of Harvard University’s most popular lecturers; he has been profiled on NPR and featured in the Wall Street Journal, USA Today, The New York Times, and Boston Globe. He teaches Positive Psychology and other classes to an amazing 20% of all Harvard graduates each semester. For the last 10 years he has been teaching personal and organizational excellence, leadership, ethics, and self-esteem. He lives in Boston and Jerusalem. --This text refers to the preloaded_digital_audio_player edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Though everyone wants to be happier, how many of us can actually define what that means? In his class, "Positive Psychology," one of the most popular courses at Harvard University, Ben-Shahar teaches that happiness isn't as elusive a concept as people think, and can actually be learned; he commits the fundamentals of his course to paper in this primer on getting happy, which he defines as a combination of pleasure (short-term happiness) and meaning (long-term). Divided into three parts, "What is Happiness?", "Happiness Applied" and "Meditations on Happiness," Ben-Shahar provides insight and exercises, prodding reflection in readers ("Do you accept negative emotions as natural?" "Do you see your work as a job, a career, or a calling?") while explicating the relationships among happiness, motivation and goals. Though it sounds simple, Ben-Shahar insists on keen self-awareness and purposeful action to overcome entrenched patterns of despondency and/or disbelief. For answer-seekers, this is definitely a good start.
