Summary
This is not just another happiness book. Behavior expert Paul Dolan combines insights from economics and psychology to illustrate that to be happy we must behave happy. Our happiness is experiences of both pleasure and purpose over time, and it depends on what we actually pay attention to. Using what Dolan calls deciding, designing, and doing, we can overcome the biases that make us miserable and redesign our environments to make it easier to experience happiness, fulfillment, and even health
