The How of Happiness A Scientific Approach to Getting the Life You WantIn this book that I think need revise and resubmitFor example the author notes the fact that only 10% of variance in Pictures For Sad Children happiness ratings is due to a person s situation as opposed to behaviors or genetics Sadly she then conflates that with the notion that only 10% of a person s subjectiveappiness is due to a person s situation The first is a population The Misadventures of Awkward Black Girl heritability estimate the latter looks at individuals This fundamental mischaracterization of the statistic undermineser entire point She also neglects the possibility of interaction terms between situation and behaviors Yes its true that interacting with friends is a behavioral variable so gets counted under behavior in Naradas Bhakti Sutra: Verses on Connecting with the Divine Infinite Through the Path of Love and Surrender her model but itsarder for people living alone in a research station in siberia to interact with friends than folks living in the town they grew up in so situation location needs to be counted in this All in all a sloppy book from a scientific perspective I stopped reading around chapter 3 because it was pissing me off Excellent book on tangible ways to increase Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain happiness in your life Basic theory Weave a genetic Worlds of Weber happiness set point that accounts for 50% of ourappiness 10% of our The Shadows in the Street Simon Serrailler happiness comes from our life s circumstances like where we live what car we driveow much money we make etc And the remaining 40% rests in Harm Reduction how we choose to beappy everyday ie our daily activities The book focuses on refining that 40% All based on empirical evidence A must read I am about The Sabbath half way through this book and it is beginning to annoy me a little If youave read anything in the positive psychology vein Seligman Peterson or Csiksentmihalyi this will not be newI know there is research behind what she is saying so I don t need to be reminded every second sentenceI also find Theremin Ether Music and Espionage her very repetitive I know it is writen for the non expert but I really do not think there is any need to keep repeating everthing ad nauseumTheows are interesting and applicable and I was trying to reflect on Wild how I would feel if Iad never read anything on positive psychology I think it would definitely Illegally Yours Forrester Suare 9 have stimulated my interest but I also think I wouldave felt very over whelmed by all er suggestionsIt is useful to be able to skip from one section to the next so I like the structureIt is a very easy read and would be a very useful guide to the whole area of positive psychology but I prefer something a bit background and less instructions in books like these I was assigned to read this book for a psychology class and I can t say that I was mad about it I ve never really read a self elp book before but if you are in that boat as well This is an awesome place to start I think the most important aspect of this book is that is is research based Another aspect that I appreciated was the fact that the book was personalizeable based on tests at the beginning of the book So depending on the results OF THOSE TEST THE BOOK CAN BE TAILORED TO those test the book can be tailored to specifically A comprehensive well researched book on Fables Volume 4 March of the Wooden Soldiers how to becomeappier While we To the Baltic with Bob: An Epic Misadventure have a set point forappiness that is predetermined based on our genetic makeup there is still 40% of our appiness level that can be changed This book makes the point that changing life situations such as winning the lottery
