Description: Can true happiness be achieved with a new car, a raise, a winning lottery ticket? Or is it decided for you before you're even born? Dr. David Lykken conducted extensive studies on identical twins reared miles apart. They showed the same levels of happy living, regardless of their environment -- evidence that happiness is, in fact, genetic. But if you're not inherently happy, don't despair. In a warmly personal voice, Dr. Lykken uses examples from his own life to illustrate how one can be an "epicure of experience", enjoying the wide range of activities that enhance one's natural level of happiness, from cooking to raising kids. He also discusses "happiness thieves" such as depression, fear, and irritability, and ways that they can be avoided.

For anyone interested in the psychology of happiness, the nurture vs. nature argument, or simply the way to lead a better life, this book is bound to bring on a smile.
