After several months, I have finally 'finished' Matthieu Ricard's book Happiness - a profound meditation on the Buddhist path to eudaimonia and the good life. I say 'finished' because now the book is read, it feels like the journey has only just begun. For anyone at all interested in learning more about the transformative possibilities of Buddhism (perhaps the most practical positive pyschology ever invented), this, along with the books of Thich Nhat Hanh, is a good place to start. Happiness is filled with inspiring quotes, meditation/visualisation exercises and examples which act as markers along the journey.
