Searching for Happiness, by Martin Thielen


I really enjoyed this book, half of it has been carefully highlighted whilst reading. At first I was attracted by the cover; bright orange, the compass on top and of course the word “happiness”, which quest seems to engage us quite deeply.

Well apparently, human beings are looking for happiness in all the wrong places, but in “Searching for Happiness” Martin Thielen used psychological research, personal anecdotes and words from the Bible to demonstrate how little external circumstances impact life satisfaction; only about 10 percent. If we consider that 50 percent of our overall happiness is “genetic”, the remaining 40 percent is what we have to work with; our attitude, because happiness is an “inside job”.

Written with intelligence and humour this will be a nice reading; very informative and inspiring.
