In his coaching work with senior executives, Manfred Kets de Vries, concluded that self-knowledge and happiness are inextricably linked and that in the absence of self-knowledge, true happiness will always elude us. He believes that we need to reflect on what is important to us and set our priorities accordingly to be able to live life to the fullest. The Happiness Equation is a stimulating read with inspiring thoughts and id

Surround yourself with lucky objects, the Chinese believe, and good fortune will come to you. In word and image, this exquisite volume-a delight to hold in the hand-explores the bounteous meanings of the five-fold symbols of happiness: luck, prosperity, longevity, happiness, and wealth. Drenched in color and lavishly illustrated from ancient and modern sources, Five-Fold Happiness interweaves both Chinese and English text.

Why would there be a contract out on Edwin de Valu’s life? Edwin -- the wiry low-level editor at Panderic Press. Why has rage disappeared from the roads and McDonald’s gone alfalfa? How come everyone seems so damn happy? And most importantly, who, or what, is Tupak Soiree? When an enormous self-help manuscript lands on Edwin’s desk, it’s headed for the trash. Edwin’s cynicism of self-help books, coupled with his filthy mood that morning, results in him dismissing Tupak Soiree’s What I Learned on the Mountain and using it as a doorstop. However, Tupak

In this seventh book in the popular Insights for a New Way of Living series, Osho examines the nature of joy from a radically different perspective. With an artful mix of compassion and humor, Osho shows us that joy is the essence of life, that even unhappiness has its root in joy. Osho encourages us to accept joy by being grateful to be alive and for the challenges and opportunities in life, and by finding the good in all that we have--rather than setting conditions or demands for happiness. By embracing joy, one comes closer to a true, peaceful, and balanced state.Joy: The Happiness That

When parents are asked what they want for their children, they usually answer that they want their children to be happy. Why, then, is happiness rarely mentioned as a goal of education? This book explores what we might teach if we were to take happiness seriously as a goal of education. It asks, first, what it means to be happy and, second, how we can help children to understand it. It notes that we have to develop a capacity for unhappiness and a willingness to alleviate the suffering of others to be truly happy. Criticizing our current almost exclusive emphasis on economic well-being and ple
