The Happiness Equation

The Happiness Equation
Want Nothing + Do Anything = Have Everything
by Neil Pasricha

Hardcover, 320 pages
Publisher: G.P. Putnam's Sons

What’s the formula for a happy life?

Happiness seems like an easy concept, but generally speaking... it is hard to find and even harder to maintain.

Neil has a formula. Starting with - Be Happy First!

Don't wait to be happy. Don't tell yourself what you have to accomplish in order to be happy. You have all the tools now. Very little assembly required.

From the Back Flap:

Neil Pasricha is a Harvard MBA, a Walmart executive, a New York Times–bestselling author, and a husband and dad. After selling more than a million copies of his Book of Awesome series, he now shifts his focus from observation to application.

In The Happiness Equation, Pasricha illustrates how to want nothing, do anything, and have everything. If that sounds like a contradiction, you simply haven’t unlocked the 9 Secrets to Happiness.

Each secret takes a common ideal, flips it on its head, and casts it in a completely new light. Pasricha then goes a step further by providing step-by-step guidelines and hand-drawn scribbles that illustrate exactly how to apply each secret to live a happier life today.

Controversial? Maybe. Counterintuitive? Definitely.

The Happiness Equation will teach you such principles as:
· Why success doesn’t lead to happiness
· How to make more money than a Harvard MBA
· Why multitasking is a myth
· How eliminating options leads to more choice

The Happiness Equation is a book that will change how you think about everything—your time, your career, your relationships, your family, and, ultimately, of course, your happiness.

Neil Pasricha is the author of #1 international bestseller The Book of Awesome and the creator of the "1000 Awesome Things" website which has received nearly 20 million hits, averages 45,000 views a day, and has won two Webby Awards.
