Many books have been published in recent years on happiness. Ezra Bayda, a remarkably down-to-earth Zen teacher, believes that the happiness "boom" has been largely a bust for readers. Why? Because it's precisely the pursuit of happiness that keeps us trapped in cycles of dissatisfaction and suffering. Bayda offers alternatives to achieve the deepest, most lasting form of happiness through Zen insights and simple mindfulness practices. Most of us continually seek happiness in things that are external to us. We imagine that getting more money, a better relationship, or going on a nice vacation will finally make us happy. But Zen teacher Ezra Bayda shows us that it is only by dropping our pursuit of happiness and learning to surrender to what actually is--surrendering to the truth of our lived experience--that we can find the deepest and most lasting form of happiness.

As Britain's best-known headmaster, Sir Anthony famously introduced happiness, or well-being, lessons at his school, Wellington College. In 2011, he co-founded Action for Happiness, a body to raise awareness of the discovery of happiness and reduction of depression, whose influence is growing rapidly in Britain and across the world. In this book Anthony Seldon distinguishes between pleasure, happiness and joy, and offers an original 8-step approach on how to make our lives far more meaningful and rewarding. The pursuit of happiness can all too easily become a trap which seduces us into thinking there is no more to life than being happy. In fact, the author is highly critical of 'positive psychology' and other dominant schools of thought. In fact, we need to reach beyond this if we are to access the deepest levels of human experience open to us, and find our own unique path in life. The author offers a further 5 steps, which point the way to accessing these deeper levels of experience, which alone result in the joyful life which is our birthright. Paradoxically, as this book demonstrates, stepping off the happiness treadmill will ultimately make for a happier and more fulfilled life. It is time to go beyond happiness.

Contemporary mind sciences are revealing facts about the brain and its development that have much to teach us about health and happiness. For a greater part of the twentieth century, psychology and psychotherapy had little to say to one another. Despite Freud's early wish to consider psychoanalysis a science, academic psychology had scant time for what it considered at best an "art" form, while psychotherapy found little interest in psychology's lack of concern with subjective experience. Since the rise of the interdisciplinary fields of cognitive science, neuroscience and consciousness studies and the growth of new technologies, all this has changed. This new knowledge challenges many of our common sense and long-held beliefs. It has important implications for education and health, and illuminates both natural optimal development and the way later therapy may heal early insufficiency. What is perhaps more surprising is that these findings engage with the "first" psychology, that of Buddhism.

Happiness is often easy to depict in books but is often the hardest for anyone to feel in reality. This is because life is nothing like a story, but that doesn't mean that happiness is unachievable. The feeling of happiness varies among people and there are many different reasons as to why one would be happy. In the end, it's how long that happiness is able to last that matters the most. Of course you would want your happiness to last for as long as you live, but the fact that you want to read this book means that you probably don't know what happiness is or how to obtain it. The truth is that happiness is not as difficult to achieve as you think it would be and this book would explain why.

What do you do when you realise that, even though you have everything you’ve always wanted, you’re still unhappy? How do you stop your eternal search for happiness? How do you find lifelong bliss, love, and joy, and move your life beyond happiness too? In Beyond Happiness, author and master healer Marnie McDermott reveals the answers to these questions and more. In this deeply personal account, she shares lessons, wisdom, and insight that touches the heart and inspires the spirit with the twelve principles of enduring bliss. For ten years, she searched in vain for happiness, only to find that the more successful she was, the more money she earned, the more things she had (and the more she strived to have), the more miserable she grew. She was a successful corporate communication specialist who had the world at her feet. But when she lost everything—except her life—in a devastating house fire, her priorities shifted. Now, in Beyond Happiness, she demonstrates that what we all really crave is lasting happiness of the soul. Driven to rediscover happiness and find enduring bliss, she studied alternative health and mind-body principles, immersing herself in esoteric wisdom. By following what she calls “the gentle knowing in her heart,” she left the corporate world behind for the mysterious world of healers, mystics, and angels. Within Beyond Happiness, the keys to lifelong bliss, love, happiness, and joy for all who wish to move their lives beyond happiness await.

Everyone is searching for happiness, but they are looking in the wrong place—outside. Real happiness, bliss, can only be found by going inside. Commenting on the ancient wisdom of the Shiva Sutras, Osho shows how to avoid the outside traps of desire and attachment. If you can learn the knack of dis-identifying with the mind, you will find that bliss is hidden within all of everyday experience. Being human happens when you get out of the vicious circle called mind.

What constitutes a good life? For most people, well-being involves more than a high income or material prosperity alone. Many non-material aspects, such as health, family life, living environment, job quality and the meaningful use of time are at least as important. Together, these factors also influence the degree to which people are satisfied with their lives, and help to determine how happy they feel. This book argues that happiness and life satisfaction do not form a good basis for measuring well-being, and proposes an alternative method that not only considers the various aspects of well-being, but also the fact that people have their own views on what is important in life. Not limited just to theory, the book also presents a large-scale, representative survey involving more than 3000 adults from over 2000 Belgian families, which charted the various aspects of the individual well-being of Belgians. Focusing on the unequal distribution of these various aspects of well-being within families, the survey showed that some Belgians are more likely to suffer from cumulative deprivation in multiple dimensions. Based on this innovative study, the book describes which people in society are worst off – and these are not necessarily only people on low incomes or those who feel unhappy – and proposes that policymakers prioritise these individuals.

A leading economist discusses the potential of happiness research (the quantification of well-being) to answer important questions that standard economics methods are unable to analyze. Revolutionary developments in economics are rare. The conservative bias of the field and its enshrined knowledge make it difficult to introduce new ideas not in line with received theory. Happiness research, however, has the potential to change economics substantially in the future. Its findings, which are gradually being taken into account in standard economics, can be considered revolutionary in three respects: the measurement of experienced utility using psychologists' tools for measuring subjective well-being; new insights into how human beings value goods and services and social conditions that include consideration of such non-material values as autonomy and social relations; and policy consequences of these new insights that suggest different ways for government to affect individual well-being. In Happiness, emphasizing empirical evidence rather than theoretical conjectures, Bruno Frey substantiates these three revolutionary claims for happiness research. After tracing the major developments of happiness research in economics and demonstrating that we have gained important new insights into how income, unemployment, inflation, and income demonstration affect well-being, Frey examines such wide-ranging topics as democracy and federalism, self-employment and volunteer work, marriage, terrorism, and watching television from the new perspective of happiness research. Turning to policy implications, Frey describes how government can provide the conditions for people to achieve well-being, arguing that a crucial role is played by adequate political institutions and decentralized decision making. Happiness demonstrates the achievements of the economic happiness revolution and points the way to future research.
