Happiness

The Science Behind Your Smile

Daniel Nettle

  • Shows how the way we view happiness - our definition of it, and where we might seek it - has changed over time.
  • Examines a wide variety of aspects of happiness: Can we measure it? Why are some people happy and others not? And is there a drug that could eliminate all unhappiness?
  • Brings together the latest insights from philosophy, psychiatry, and psychology.
  • Includes the latest research from the National Child Development Study, which has collected data on people's levels of happiness since 1958.
