This book asks and answers the important questions about the nature and value of happiness. Is happiness rare? Can money buy happiness? Does age affect happiness? Are men happier than women? This is my favorite quote I found in the book. The essence of happiness is pausing to savor the gift of our present moments.
In a world of multi-tasking happiness may be eluding us more and more. We need to take time over our coffee, tea or soda. We need to focus on eating when eating and realize we are nourishing our bodies. We need to see the beauty in a fresh fallen snow and let the worries about traffic keep for when you have to deal with the traffic. We need to treasure the times that our pets cuddle with us, when a friend takes time to say hello, when a neighbor needs help, when our child takes time to need us.

Textbook, decently written. Certainly better than the "reader" I read. Unfortunately I do not feel that it represented the material on the Psych GRE well, even the social section!

An interesting enough textbook. I haven't read word for word but what I've read of it, I've enjoyed. Psychology is always interesting, and this textbook does a good job teaching it.

Not my favorite psychology book on the market, but it was certainly readable. Compared to other similar texts that I have read, this one did not flow the best but the information was still easy enough to understand.
