New York Times number-one best-selling author Richard Eyre contends that the three things today's society desires most - control, ownership, and independence - are, paradoxically, what bring the most discouragement and unhappiness in our lives. Providing a mind-changing exploration of the inherent problems with our fixation on material possessions, control over our lives, and independence from others, Eyre responds with a unique and engaging counterpoint of how to switch to the joy-giving alternatives of serendipity, stewardship, and interdependence and thus live a more verdant and abundant life.
The first half of The Happiness Paradox explores today's challenges to happiness. The second half of the book explores The Happiness Paradigm: How a New View Can Turn Your Life Right-Side Up. Eyre, author of Teaching Your Children Values, The Entitlement Trap, and The Turning, uses his engaging and highly personal style to walk us through a mental paradigm shift that can change our lives. An impactful and illuminating exploration of how what we seek impacts our well-being, The Happiness Paradox/The Happiness Paradigm is one of the most unique books ever written about our search for lasting joy.
