In this book, lecturer, theologian, philosopher, and Los Angeles radio personality Dennis Prager ruminates on what makes happiness such a serious problem to solve. He discusses the difference between happiness and success, and between happiness and fun, and how to adjust our expectations of life. Prager maintains that insatiable human nature makes lasting happiness profoundly difficult to achieve, but that nevertheless, it can be a reality. When happiness is treated with the same level of seriousness that people bring to life’s other tasks, it becomes immediately more tangible and thus achievable.

Changed my life!
One of, if not the best book I've listened to. I was blown away at how the philosophies just make sense. A friend who's almost in his 60's recommended this book to me; I'm in my mid 30's. We come from MUCH different backgrounds, generations, education and income levels. That tells me that these ideas are universal. I really enjoyed that the author is religious but not pushy. I grew up in a religious home but am now atheist. I was never bothered or annoyed by the (minimal) Jewish references. I will be recommending this book to everyone I know, including my Mormon friends and therapist. I wasn't a huge fan of the reader, but the subject matter helped me get over it. I was hooked from the beginning and finished the book quickly. This is definitely something I will listen to more than once.

Wish Prager would narrate this...
What did you love best about Happiness Is a Serious Problem?
Love the content of this book, it was my first introduction to Dennis Prager many years ago - back then, on cassette tape.
However, Dennis really should have narrated his own book. The narrator is adequate, clear but seriously lacks the personality and intonation of Prager. Prager's clever lines fall flat in this version.
It is still very worth the time to listen, for content.
