Owning the latest gadget, having a big salary or changing our appearance might bring us instant pleasure, but it won't bring lasting happiness - many of us end up feeling empty and lost. Anthony Seldon argues that we have the power to make the choices about the way we lead our lives. He proposes simple steps to help us tap into the happiness hidden within and take us beyond happiness and deeper into joy. In this thought provoking and practical book, Anthony Seldon shares his own experiences as a teacher, historian, parent and co-founder of Action for Happiness. By high-lighting the powerful effects of generosity, community, mindfulness and forgiveness, we are shown how they can be woven together to create a simple life full of purpose, meaning and lasting joy.
