Description
We're all laboring under society's expectation to be perfect in every way-to look younger, to make more money, to be happy all the time. But according to Tal Ben-Shahar, the New York Times bestselling author of Happier, the pursuit of "perfect" may actually be the number-one obstacle to finding happiness.
Using groundbreaking new research in the field of positive psychology-the scientific principles taught in his wildly popular course at Harvard University-Ben-Shahar takes us off the impossible pursuit of perfection and directs us to the way to happiness, richness, and true fulfillment. He shows us an optimal way of thinking about failure and success.
He provides self-reflective exercise, meditations, and "Time-Ins" to help you rediscover what you really want out of life. And he makes a convincing case that you don't have to be perfect to be perfectly happy.
