Product Description
by Joan Chittister

2012 Nautilus Award Silver Winner

Everyone wants to be happy, yet many wrongly believe that happiness comes from having enough money, fame, personal comfort, worldly success, or even dumb luck. Happiness seems to be an elusive, arbitrary thing—something, all too often, just out of reach. Joan Chittister sees happiness differently—as a personal quality to be learned, mastered, and fearlessly wielded. In Happiness she embarks on a “great happiness dig” through sociology, biology, neurology, psychology, philosophy, history, and world religions to develop “an archaeology of happiness.” Sifting through the wisdom of the ages, Chittister offers inspiring insights that will help seekers everywhere cultivate true and lasting happiness within themselves.
