Harris. Time Magazine columnist Joel Stein, shark attack survivor Nicole Moore and Major League Baseball star Shawn Green. You’ll also meet non-celebrities who reveal to the author just how important happiness is in their lives.
"My goal with Why Being Happy Matters is to inspire you," says Peter Jennings. "The book presents enlightening discussions with credible individuals who have discovered the secret to being genuinely joyful and content. People worldwide from all walks of life, from all socio-economic levels, from varied age groups who refuse to let the world get them down. The common theme that links them is: they flourish. They've harnessed the power of pleasure."
The people you’ll meet in Why Being Happy Matters are individuals who confront the same life challenges all of us do. Some of them are hard-wired “happy campers". Others have to work at getting to their state of happiness, often rising from periods of despondency or real-life tragic events. But each of them has accepted that they have options on how to manage their lives: mastering the art of finding joy is available to them and to each of us. We do have the ability to integrate happiness into our existence.
The author also interviews several Ph.Ds who are conducting important work into positive psychology (the study of happiness). The perceptions they reveal are truly insightful. And Jennings talks with Leo Bormans, author of the respected "World Book of Happiness", who shares his discussions with global experts.
Happiness is a powerful game changer. It's an advantage available to all of us. Join the people you’ll meet in Why Being Happy Matters and discover how to let your inner life intensify with joy.
