Happiness search: Amazon

In happiness on June 30, 2009 at 9:14 am

We all love a good bargain. And, as the postal delivery workers to my house know well, so do I. I wonder if I type happiness into the Amazon search engine it will just bring up a load of books about happiness? Let’s see…
Happiness: A Guide to Developing Life’s Most Important Skill by Mattieu Ricard (paperback, published Jan 07)

Happiness: Lessons from a New Science by Richard Layard (paperback, published April 06)

Happiness – the movie starring Philip Seymour Hoffman (1999 movie, released on this DVD in May 2000)

Happiness Hypothesis: Putting Ancient Wisdom to the Test of Modern Science by Jonathan Haidt (paperback, published April 07)

Looking down the very long list which followed, there are mainly books and DVDs, mostly in the ‘self-help’ but also including The Inn of Sixth Happiness (made into a great movie) and books by the Dalai Lama. Yikes, this has made me realise how much more reading I have to do.
