              We all want to be happier. But is it possible? This book offers a resounding 'yes', by using reasoned ethics and offering a mass of empirical evidence. There is now abundant experiment evidence on how we can build a happier way of life. It speaks to individuals who want to live b...etter and it speaks to the many policy-makers who think there is more to life than GDP. Using this evidence, the book shows chapter by chapter what can be done by teachers, managers, healthcare workers, community leaders and scientists - as well of course, as economists and politicians. But above all it addresses us as individuals, showing how we can live better lives, especially with the help of movements which bring people together in community groups to support happier living. Does this agenda have any hope of taking off? This book says it already has.

              What makes people happy? Why should governments care about people's well-being? How would policy change if well-being was the main objective? The Origins of Happiness seeks to revolutionize how we think about human priorities and to promote public policy changes that are based on... what really matters to people. Drawing on a uniquely comprehensive range of evidence from longitudinal data on over one hundred thousand individuals in Britain, the United States, Australia, and Germany, the authors consider the key factors that affect human well-being. The authors explore factors such as income, education, employment, family conflict, health, childcare, and crime--and their findings are not what we might expect. Contrary to received wisdom, income inequality accounts for only two percent or less of the variance in happiness across the population; the critical factors affecting a person's happiness are their relationships and their mental and physical health. More people are in misery due to mental illness than to poverty, unemployment, or physical illness. Examining how childhood influences happiness in adulthood, the authors show that academic performance is a less important predictor than emotional health and behavior, which is shaped tremendously by schools, individual teachers, and parents. For policymakers, the authors propose new forms of cost-effectiveness analysis that places well-being at center stage. Groundbreaking in its scope and results, The Origins of Happiness offers all of us a new vision for how we might become more healthy, happy, and whole.
