My happiness bookshelf, work in progress

My happiness bookshelf is work in progress!

Some of the valuable additions from the last year:

  • Matthieu Ricard, Happiness. A Guide to Developing Life’s Most Important Skill. Great read! He argues that happiness is largely about perceptions and positive habits that one can practice. He also wrote another book about altruism, which I discussed shortly here.
  • Thomas More, Utopia. I still have to read it, but I was reminded to it very actively when in the beginning of the year there was a Dutch TV show with the same name (see blog post here). I haven’t heard anything about the show anymore, I presume it has failed…
  • Diener et al., Well-Being and Public Policy: a scientific ‘guide’ to the state of play of well-being policies. I’ll tell you more about that soon!
