Editorial Reviews

Review

..".a cogent and thoughtful examination on why human beings have a moral obligation to be happy." -- "USA Today.".".[Prager] has an astonishing ability to state simple truths we hadn't heard articulated before, at least not so clearly, in a way that makes their truthfulness immediately and powerfully obvious." -- "The Wall Street Journal""Prager's latest book challenges readers to realize that they--not any outside force--are the greatest obstacle to happiness."-- "Los Angeles Times "There is perhaps no more important task for a person that the research for happiness, and no more reliable guide in that quest than Dennis Prager." -- Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of "When Bad Things Happen to Good People"

From the Back Cover

We are completely satisfied with nothing

There is little correlation between the circumstances of people's lives and how happy they are.

This is the repair manual we should have been handed at birth

When you ask people abouttheir most cherished values in life, "happiness" is always at the top of the list. However, unhappiness does not seem to be the exceptional order to be happy, we first have to battle ourselves.

Happiness is an obligation--to yourself and to others

Not only do we have a right to be happy, we have an obligation to be happy. Our happiness has an effect on the lives of everyone around us--it provides them with a positive environment in which to thrive and to be happy themselves.
