Happiness : Why We Should Put Our Happiness First and How to Do it
Launched in 2011, the UK government's 'Action for Happiness' campaign aims to promote the social well-being of individuals, communities and, by extension, the British nation. It recognises that material prosperity and collective happiness do not automatically go hand in hand and that the relational, emotional and spiritual aspects of lives are much more important. Anthony Seldon, one of three co-founders of Action for Happiness, sets out the case for focusing on happiness in society - personally and as a wider goal of social policy and the school curriculum. Ten short chapters offer practical advice on how a range of simple steps can improve anyone's happiness. The author also explains his personal search for happiness.
