A huge bestseller in Europe, Frederic Lenoir's Happiness is an exciting journey that examines how history's greatest philosophers and religious figures have answered life's most fundamental question: What is happiness and how do I achieve it? From the ancient Greeks on--from Aristotle, Plato, and Chuang Tzu to the Buddha, Jesus, and Muhammad; from Voltaire, Spinoza, and Schopenhauer to Kant, Freud, and even modern neuroscientists--Lenoir considers the idea that true and lasting happiness is indeed possible.

How to find happiness is directed at a western educated audience, not philosophy students. The author lets down his hair and shares with the reader what some big names-- such as Socrates, Jesus and Schopenhauer-- have said about the pursuit of happiness. What science says is also considered. The final chapters reveal the author's personal choice, Spinoza and Ma Anandamayi.
