Description - Happiness Paradox by Ziyad Marar

The dream of a happy life has preoccupied thinkers since Plato, and in modern times it has become one of the signature tunes of our age - the rise of therapists, gurus, New Age cults and the use of prozac are familiar indicators of how ubiquitous the pursuit of happiness has become within Western culture. This thoughtful, insightful book examines how this modern obsession has evolved, with author Ziyad Marar showing how the state of mind we seek remains highly elusive, and much of the energy devoted to searching for happiness is wasted or even self-defeating.
