The pursuit of happiness has been recognised by everyone from poets to politicians as what makes the world go round. The world's largest and fastest-growing industries - alcohol, pharmaceuticals, mind altering drugs, self-help books, counselling, travel and tourism - all profit heavily from our intent to become completely happy with our lives. Everybody wants it. But what exactly is happiness? In the first comprehensive book to address this most basic of human desires, Daniel Nettle explores why we want to be happy, how we assess our levels of happiness, and the different ways that happiness is interpreted in different cultures.

What is happiness? What makes us happy? Why do we strive for happiness? And how might we achieve it? Daniel Nettle explores the origins and purpose of our pursuit of happiness, and uses the results of recent psychological studies to find answers to these questions and more.
