    Brought to you by Penguin.

    The audiobook edition of Happy, read by Derren Brown.

    Everyone says they want to be happy. But that's much more easily said than done. What does being happy actually mean? And how do you even know when you feel it?

    In Happy Derren Brown explores changing concepts of happiness - from the surprisingly modern wisdom of the Stoics and Epicureans in classical times right up until today, when the self-help industry has attempted to claim happiness as its own. He shows how many of self-help’s suggested routes to happiness and success – such as positive thinking, self-belief and setting goals – can be disastrous to follow and, indeed, actually cause anxiety.

    Happy aims to reclaim happiness and to enable us to appreciate the good things in life, in all their transient glory. By taking control of the stories we tell ourselves, by remembering that ‘everything’s fine’ even when it might not feel that way, we can allow ourselves to flourish and to live more happily.

    Life changing

    Very insightful and with strong arguments to live a stoic life. It definitely helped me get some aspects of my life under control.

    Loved it!

    Wonderful book, deeply thoughtful, witty and warm. Derren as the narrator comes across as charmingly self-deprecating and funny as he lays out a stoic-inspired roadmap to a more authentic, contented life. I found the chapter on death particularly useful. Can't recommend this enough.

    Schöne philosophische Reise

    Tolles Buch. Brown selbst hat sich offensichtlich tiefgehend mit dem thema befasst. ich habe ein weitaus weniger fundiertes buch erwartet, aber allein literaturverzeichnis hat mich direkt lügen gestraft. Das Englisch ist durch den britischen witz anspruchsvoller als klassische bücher aus dem feld der persönlichkeitsentwicklung. Klare Lese/Hörempfehlung. (Habe das Buch auch als Taschenbuch gekauft, weil ich gerne ein paar passagen nachschlagen wollte. Hierin sind neben wenigen erklärenden diagrammen auch Photografien von Brown enthalten).

    I liked it

    This book had not a lot of new information but a different take on things. This to me means I’m on the right track :)

    too lengthy at times

    this audiobook is too lengthy at times, especially when all the ancient philosophers were presented.

    Very smart book and well written

    I loved the book and it really helped me through a breakup. The key concepts were not new to me and yet, Derren choses his words so eloquently that something has clicked and I finally really understood them. So, to me it is a great book, very reflective and well researched
