Your happiness will be threatened throughout your life. The good news is you already have what you need to enjoy your life no matter what challenges you encounter.

Happy in a Hostile World, written by psychologist Dr. Carl Patrasso, explores the main opponents we face in contemporary American society-technology, work, and family-and reveals how human happiness is resilient against their hazards.

Dr. Patrasso begins by discussing the ten timeless principles of happiness and explaining how they are a part of human nature, which means rather than needing to acquire something outside yourself, you merely need to strengthen your innate ability to be happy through awareness and practice. He then goes on to consider how technology, work, and family, though not inherently dangerous, can cause harm. The more aware you are of how and where you might risk your happiness, the better able you will be to overcome problems rather than be trapped by them.

Suffering is inevitable but happiness is the ultimate victor; discover how you can experience more of its wins on a regular basis.
