Happiness has been written about by everyone from the Dalai Lama (The Art of Happiness) to Daniel Gilbert (Stumbling on Happiness), but in Happy At Last Richard O'Connor takes a fresh look at what happiness is, why we are happy (or not) and how we can stay happy. How? He says we can rewire our brain to be more receptive to happiness by learning to control how our minds work. Drawing on the latest scientific and psychological research, and filled with practical advice and exercises, Happy At Last is the definitive guide to understanding:
• The core skills that we need to feel fulfilled in today's world
• Strategies for increasing happiness
• Techniques for keeping sadness and stress at bay.
Richard O'Connor makes it possible to be, finally, Happy At Last!
