The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Jonathan Haidt

Narrated By: Ryan Vincent Anderson

Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Date: June 2018

Duration: 10 hours 19 minutes

Summary:

Jonathan Haidt skillfully combines two genres-philosophical wisdom and scientific research-delighting the reader with surprising insights. He explains, for example, why we have such difficulty controlling ourselves and sticking to our plans; why no achievement brings lasting happiness, yet a few changes in your life can have profound effects, and why even confirmed atheists experience spiritual elevation. In a stunning final chapter, Haidt addresses the grand question 'How can I live a meaningful life?,' offering an original answer that draws on the rich inspiration of both philosophy and science.

'The Happiness Hypothesis is a wonderful and nuanced book that provides deep insight into the some of the most important questions in life -- Why are we here? What kind of life should we lead? What paths lead to happiness? From the ancient philosophers to cutting edge scientists, Haidt weaves a tapestry of the best and the brightest. His highly original work on elevation and awe -- two long-neglected emotions -- adds a new weave to that tapestry. A truly inspiring book.'-- David M. Buss, author of The Evolution of Desire: Strategies of Human Mating

    Some parts of the books are confusing as his examples are very outdated but the book still allowed me to realize a lot of my flaws to change myself for the better.
