Engineering Happiness

A New Approach for Building a Joyful Life

Can happiness be engineered? Rakesh Sarin and Manel Baucells tackle this perennial question, trying to apply basic engineering principles to see if they can work on something as elusive as happiness. They begin with the observation that Happiness equals Reality minus Expectations, and they expand on this fundamental equation to develop six laws that govern our emotions. Through these six principles, you will understand the nature of happiness and lay the groundwork for building a life full of happiness.
Book melds together engineering/economic/mathematical expertise and a user-friendly self-help approach intoa unique narrative that offers evidence for how to be happy; they provide scientific evidence to underline how to be happy. From the book, " happiness is like a sailboat. Indeed the wind and ocean currents influence its movements, butyou have the control of the rudder. Without your exerting control, the sailboat drifts. Our laws of happiness serve as the rudder that will help you guide your sailboat to a happier destination.
