In 2001 Mo Gawdat realized that despite his incredible success, he was desperately unhappy. A lifelong learner, he attacked the problem as an engineer would: examining all the provable facts and scrupulously applying logic. Eventually, his countless hours of research and science proved successful, and he discovered the equation for permanent happiness.
Thirteen years later, Mo's algorithm would be put to the ultimate test. After the sudden death of his son, Ali, Mo and his family turned to his equation—and it saved them from despair. In dealing with the horrible loss, Mo found his mission: he would pull off the type of "moonshot" goal that he and his colleagues were always aiming for—he would share his equation with the world and help as many people as possible become happier.
In Solve for Happy Mo questions some of the most fundamental aspects of our existence, shares the underlying reasons for suffering, and plots out a step-by-step process for achieving lifelong happiness and enduring contentment. He shows us how to view life through a clear lens, teaching us how to dispel the illusions that cloud our thinking; overcome the brain's blind spots; and embrace five ultimate truths.
No matter what obstacles we face, what burdens we bear, what trials we've experienced, we can all be content with our present situation and optimistic about the future.

Not to sound immature but...
Mind. Blown. I am listening to this book for the second time, this time with my 13 year old. If she gets it, she will be 35 years ahead of me and avoid a lot of misery. If Mo started a religion, I'd join. This is not your standard self-help book. Neither is this a guy writing to make money off your existential angst. He had all the money he needed before he wrote the book. He also experienced a significant loss, so I believe he can talk about pain and suffering. This is a book to listen to over and over again. Practical steps and sage advice on how to reset your brain to solve for happy.

Great book for anyone, especially a scientist like me (veterinarian), who is not faithless but doesn't believe the rhetoric of the ages but also doesn't have any answers. In essence, it makes sense to me.
Heading back in for a second listen.
