About the Book

For most of us, the pursuit of happiness is the ultimate goal of existence: it gives us hope and a reason for living, motivating us to go on in spite of life's setbacks.

In his coaching work with senior executives, Manfred Kets de Vries, concluded that self-knowledge and happiness are inextricably linked and that in the absence of self-knowledge, true happiness will always elude us. He believes that we need to reflect on what is important to us and set our priorities accordingly to be able to live life to the fullest.

The Happiness Equation is a stimulating read with inspiring thoughts and ideas on how to become happier and live a more fulfilling life.
