Happiness, says Prager, is a serious problem. This is because the single greatest obstacle to happiness is insatiable human nature itself. But though lasting happiness is profoundly difficult to achieve, it is not impossible. Now, with his insightful and explosive new work "Happiness Is a Serious Problem, " an extension of his world-famous lectures, Prager gives readers the powerful new tools they need to make happiness a reality in their own lives.
"Happiness Is a Serious Problem" contains many life-changing insights, including the idea that the only people we know who are happy are people we don't know well; the fact that being happy is usually seen as a selfish goal but that we have a moral obligation to the people in our lives to pursue it; and that unhappiness is really the difference between our perceptions and our reality. By changing our reality or reducing our expectations, happiness becomes easily realizable. Humorous, accessible and penetrating, "Happiness Is a Serious Problem" shows that when happiness is treated with the same level of seriousness that people bring to life's other tasks, it becomes immediately more tangible and thus achievable.
