Happy Ever After - Escaping The Myth of the Perfect Life
Are you happy? If you had three wishes right now, what would you ask for to bring you infinite hapiness? If you're like most people, at least one of those wishes is probably to do with money, family or love. Find an amazing partner, add in a dream job- that's how people find happiness right? Well, maybe not.
In this bestselling book, behavioural scientist Paul Dolan is here to tell us that being happy isn't really such a perfect equation. In Happy Ever After, he brings us through the research disproving much of what we think we know about achieving a perfect life. Beyond £50,000 a year, earning more money isn't going to make you any happier. Neither is finding a job that's perceived as important or prestigious.
Now, we're not trying to make you give up hope here. The beauty of this book isn't in its disproving myths about the “ideal life”, but rather in showing you how great an un-ideal life can be. Maybe you shouldn't go to college straight out of school, maybe you shouldn't marry that guy just because your mom likes him. Paul Dolan's lasting message from this fascinating book is that if we want our happy ever after, we need to rethink everything we've been told about finding it.
