Now, in The Science of Happiness, leading German science journalist Stefan Klein ranges widely across the latest frontiers of neuroscience and neuropsychology to explain how happiness is fostered in our brains and what biological purpose it serves (and, importantly, how we can control our negative feelings and emotions).

We all have a happiness baseline, which is our general long-term happiness. Now, there will always be good days (such as winning the lottery) and not-so-good days (like being paralyzed), and so our daily happiness constantly fluctuates around the baseline. The important thing here is, happiness, always returns back to baseline.

In addition, he explains the neurophysiology of our passions (the elementary rules of which are hardwired into our brains), the power of consciousness, and how we can use it.

Clinical psychologists have been dealing with miserable feelings since their discipline was established. In the last 30 years, neuroscientists have made major headway in the understanding of the sources of anger, depression, and fear. Today, whole industries profit from this knowledge—producing pills for every sort of pathological mood disturbance. But until recently, few neuroscientists focused on the subject of happiness. Now, in The Science of Happiness, leading German science journalist Stefan Klein ranges widely across the latest frontiers of neuroscience and neuropsychology to explain how happiness is fostered in our brains and what biological purpose it serves (and, importantly, how we can control our negative feelings and emotions). In addition, he explains the neurophysiology of our passions (the elementary rules of which are hardwired into our brains), the power of consciousness, and how we can use it. In a final section, Klein explores the conditions required to foster the "pursuit of happiness." A remarkable synthesis of a growing body of research that has not heretofore been brought together in one accessible book, The Science of Happiness will ultimately help each of us understand our own quest for happiness—and our fostering of it, as well.

This is the best psychology book I ever read. I have read several self-help books but I have never felt better after any of them. This book explained emotions and feeling in terms of hormones and brain functions. After reading the book, I no longer felt that there was something wrong with the whole me, just a part of me: my brain. This realization made it easier to focus on the problem and fix the problem. If you are tired of reading books about how meditation will just make you feel better, this book will show you how it re-wires your brain and HOW it can really make you feel better. I think it is just awesome.

If you don't already know anatomy jargon, specifically of the brain, this makes for a tough read. I don't know this jargon but the info was so interesting I got through it. This ended up being a gold mine of conversation topic.

This is good, easy reading and so informative. I heard the author being interviewed and loved him, so thought I'd check into the book. What a help it is to me.

This is a great book. Everyone has an opinion, but science attempts to analyze the facts to determine the truth.

This book is easy to read, but it cites many scientific studies to shows how our everyday behavior can alter our brain chemistry for the better or worse. It does not rely on dogmatic opinion unsupported by scientific data.

The translation from German is superb. One would never know from reading this book that it was originally written in another language.

The reader who objected to the last chapter just objects to the truth. Scientific research sometimes turns up facts that are not politically correct in some circles. A quick Goggle search of the Internet for "happiness nations" yields many web sites supporting the observations of the last chapter of this book.

Again - If you are to read one book on this subject, this would be the one to read. There are several other good books on happiness. I have half a dozen. This is the best of the bunch.
