How do events in our life influence happiness? Can too much of a good thing make us less happy? Does personality make a difference? Is happiness mainly down to luck?

The Psychology of Happiness introduces readers to the variety of factors that can affect how happy we are. It covers events in our life and also the many influences from ourselves, and looks at the different forms of this subjective experience, some of which will change throughout our lives. Although feeling happy is linked with positive thinking and sociability in daily life, the book also includes surprising facts about the limitations of our personal happiness.

We all want to feel happy in our lives, and The Psychology of Happiness shows us that achieving it can be both an accident of fortune and a direct result of our own actions.
