Book Name:- If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Happy?: The Surprising Path from Career Success to Life Success
Book Author:- Raj Raghunathan
What are the true determinants of a fulfilling and happy life?
Widely admired psychological researcher Rag Raghunathan sets out to find the answer, undertaking extensive research into the happiness of business people, students, stay-at-home-parents, artists, and lawyers, among others. From his research, he reveals a crucial discovery: many of the psychological traits that lead to success ironically get in the way of happiness.
Forging a new way forward, Rag Raghunathan shows how we can transform these key traits of success, namely the need for importance, the need to be loved, and the need for control, and replace them with other behaviours, goals and values to improve our life-long levels of happiness.
