Happiness by Matthieu Ricard
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


This step-by-step guide to achieving happiness is the most significant book of its kind. A remarkable book. It is hard to imagine a more convincing guide to that elusive thing: happiness.' Pankaj Mishra Although we are materially better off than ever before, surveys show that we are depressed and listless. Ricard's revolutionary book, free of arcane jargon, shows that happiness is not just an emotion, but a skill that can be developed. This book contains 20-minute exercises to train the mind to recognise and pursue a lasting happiness.
