ABOUT THIS BOOK
Happiness is the most significant preoccupation of mankind and is of universal interest. This fascinating book closely examines the medical and biological basis of happiness. Life is 99% biology and so is happiness!
This book aggressively searches for the most intimate neurobiological underpinnings of happiness. It examines anthropological and philosophical approaches to enhance our state of happiness.
The most daring aspect of this book is its determined effort to unmask the unreality of religious wishful thinking, spiritual "mumbo-jumbo", and the traditional psycho-babble that is served in huge helpings to the general reading public. The author has tried to stick to scientific data; to tell it as it is; all with the goal of helping us to learn to cope with the stark realities of our lives.
