From the Publisher:
Chronicles the author's year spent testing the edicts of conventional wisdom to assess their actual potential for improving life, describing how she engaged in various activities from getting more sleep and singing to her children to starting a blog and imitating a spiritual master. 50,000 first printing.
Gretchen Rubin reports on her yearlong project to become happier without making drastic changes to her life, an endeavor which included taking on a series of manageable monthly goals (such as "bring people together" or "ask for help"); conducting scholarly research into happiness studies by Aristotle, Victor Frankl and Winston Churchill; and sharing her progress with an online community through her blog. Rubin's research allows her to create a working social definition for happiness, while her unique activities help her to apply that definition to her individual life. She discovers that happiness is a constant work in progress, and her analysis of her successes and failures is sure to benefit anyone intent on taking their own journey towards personal joy.


"THE HAPPINESS PROJECT is a deft, clear-eyed account of [Rubin's] efforts, discoveries, failings and ultimate successes....[She] wins readers with her honest, straightforward style....[The book] reads more like self-help than travelogue or comedy. But Rubin's methods are contagious, easy to apply in real life -- and practical." - Hannah Sampson 01/24/2010

"[THE HAPPINESS PROJECT] is an easy, sometimes entertaining read, though the navel-gazing can be off-putting. But if you like hearing the details of someone else's vague discontent...,, relish keeping charts, are game to try singing in the morning and think adding more chores to your life will increase your happiness, well, then, this book is perfect." - Elizabeth Chang 02/07/2010
