Can we really learn to be happy? Yes, we can. Each semester, nearly 1,400 students sign up for Harvard professor Tal Ben-Shahar's life-changing class "How to Get Happy". Currently it's the hottest course at Harvard, taken by 20 percent of graduates.
In Happier, Professor Ben-Shahar brings the ideas of the Ivory Tower to Main Street, distilling the lessons and exercises from his course into an audio trove of practical wisdom. Grounded in the Positive Psychology movement, based on years of researching the works of scientists, academics, and philosophers, Happier emphasizes the importance of pursuing a life of both pleasure and meaning. Lessons, exercises, and "Happiness Boosters" cover self-esteem, empathy, friendship, love, achievement, creativity, spirituality, and humor.
Questions will help listeners identify activities that will make them happier immediately, as they apply what they've learned to school, work, and personal relationships. You'll discover that happiness, not money, is the ultimate currency, that we can't be happy unless we first give ourselves permission to be human, and that happiness isn't so elusive after all.

Excellent Philosophy and Research
Yes, I have listened to this 3 times so far and I will no doubt listen again
None in particular, however I feel that the whole book is so relevant and informative to us all that the whole story is a must to be listened to.
Yes, and I have listened to it all in one sitting twice.
This is an area of psychology that I am extremely interested and passionate about - however, you do not need to have any psychology knowledge to follow the book or any of the research referenced as it is so well told it relates to everyday life and situations.
Worth Reading for Happiness Health and Life
The way the author very effectively approaches the topic of succeeding in spite of obstacles and dealing with setbacks and ' being tested by adversity' for healthy self esteem etc.
