Item description for The Nature of Happiness (Little Book Matters) by Desmond Morris...

What is happiness? Here, one of the world's foremost behavioral scientists tackles this age-old question. He shows that there are many ways of achieving happiness; for example, there is the inherent happiness that comes with the love of a child; the competitive happiness of triumphing over your opponents; the sensual happiness of the hedonist. Rather than preaching a particular behavior or way of life, Morris provides knowledge that we can use, if we wish, to make ourselves happier.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Nature of Happiness (Little Book Matters)?

transient happiness  Jan 1, 2007
The author does give excellent brief reviews of the ways of acheiving happiness, but the reader should remember he is defining happiness as a relatively transient feeling of joy. He is not talking about a meaningful life and a more profound view of lasting happiness. He is actually very skeptical about even the possibility of lasting happiness.
Quick, enjoyable read  Apr 12, 2005
Morris is one of my favorite authors because he provides such intelligent insights into human behavior. This book was no different. The Nature of Happiness is a small book (about a 2 hour read or so). However, as a biologist specializing in mammalian behavior, Morris does not use psycho-bable in this book. Rather, he gives practical information that one can use to find more happiness.
