book: the happiness paradox

Just finished Richard Eyre’s “The happiness paradox”.

The book argues that the very things most of us chase — control, ownership and independence — are making us unhappy.

To be happy we need to shift to a happiness paradigm in which these three “joy thieves” are traded for three “joy rescuers.”

Good read, well written, although a bit repetitive, chewing on about same things towards the last third of the book.

Slightly confusing is the flip format, paradox and paradigm parts start on opposite site of the book (cover) and there is no indication where to start.
