The Happiness Hypothesis is an audiobook about ten Great Ideas. Each chapter is an attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the world's civilizations - to question it in light of what we now know from scientific research, and to extract from it the lessons that still apply to our modern lives and illuminate the causes of human flourishing.
Award-winning psychologist Jonathan Haidt, the author of The Righteous Mind, shows how a deeper understanding of the world's philosophical wisdom and its enduring maxims - like "do unto others as you would have others do unto you", or "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger" - can enrich and even transform our lives.
PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

Awesome book, poor performance
Incredibly well-researched book, compelling arguments, perhaps at times a little bit too self-assured but definitely very valuable for our times and extremely common-sensical. Would have enjoyed much much much more had the performance caught any of the humor and irony obvious in the tone of the writer and sadly completely absent in this monotonous reading... so, a much better read than a “hear”, too bad. Still, I listened to the whole thing and am the better for having gained the knowledge in this book.

Could have been great.
This is an extremely good book for the first eight chapters. Unfortunately, starting in chapter 9 this atheist author decides to take a stab at explaining God. Instead of it supporting the overarching thesis of the book, it comes off as a blind man trying to explain color. And his perspective on people's political ideologies is comedically elementary. Such a shame. Such a waste.
