In his New York Times bestseller Happier, positive psychology expert Tal Ben-Shahar taught us how to become happier through simple exercises. Now he is back with Choose The Life You Want: 101 Ways to Create Your Own Road to Happiness. Drawing on the latest psychological research, Ben-Shahar shows how making the right choices can have a direct, lifelong impact on our happiness. Not just the big, once in a lifetime choices, but the countless small choiceswe make every day, often barely even noticing! Tal Ben-Shahar’s classes on “Positive Psychology” and “The Psychology of Leadership” were among the largest courses in Harvard’s history, attracting nearly 20% of all Harvard undergrads. He has lectured around the world and holds a PhD in organizational behavior and a BA in philosophy.
