Item description for The Myth of More: And Other Lifetraps That Sabotage the Happiness You Deserve by Joseph R. Novello...

Guiding the reader on a journey of self-discovery, this book helps us understand that we all possess the power to be happy if we would only awaken to it.

Publishers Description
Joseph Novello's new book has a simple but powerful message: People constantly chase after happiness, but in confusing happiness with pleasure, they set themselves up for continual frustration and failure. Pleasure is a short-term high that comes from without, while happiness is an abiding serenity that comes from within. Happiness lies in accepting who we are right now and what we have right now.

A major obstacle to happiness is one's "lifetraps", patterns of behavior that helped us cope in childhood but which now cause us to be dysfunctional as adults. What began as habits end up as core components of our personality. But even after overcoming these lifetraps, Novello discovered, people still need to go further to find happiness; they need to discover the spirituality within life and within themselves.

The Myth of More Information = Good Book  Oct 11, 2001
I really wanted to enjoy this book, but, I don't know, there was just something about it. I don't think I learned anything from this book. It seemed more like one of those "Chicken Soup for the Soul" books than anything else.
Spiritual Psychiatry  Jan 23, 2001
I am typically not a big fan of self-help type books but I must say that I truly enjoyed reading Dr. Novello's account of the "spiritual" side of psychiatry. This book is written for everyone - whether professional or lay person in a style that is easy to read and yet challenging enough to keep one's interest. His review of the theories on the influence of "lifetraps" in people's behavior are brought to life with humor, humanity and fascinating case studies. For anyone that is in the midst of a personal quest for happiness, (and who isn't?)this book is a gem! As we search for love and happiness, Dr. Novello's book reminds us of looking inside ourselves to find the peace and love we seek. I highly recommend this book!
