Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking
Discover an original and thought-provoking approach to self-help in "The Antidote." Author Oliver Burkeman explores success through failure and calm through embracing anxiety, challenging the idea that happiness is solely achieved through wealth, romance, or work. Burkeman shares insights from a diverse group of individuals, including Buddhists, psychologists, and Greek philosophers, who argue that our constant pursuit of happiness is what's making us miserable. Embrace uncertainty, failure, and insecurity for a truly fulfilling life with this uplifting guide to happiness.
Fabulous book. Totally fun. It’s happiness for people who can’t stand positive thinking. – source
