The Pursuit of Unhappiness: The Elusive Psychology of Well-Being

OUP Oxford (2008)
Dan Haybron presents an illuminating examination of well-being, drawing on important recent work in the science of happiness. He shows that we are remarkably prone to error in judgements of our own personal welfare, and suggests that we should rethink traditional assumptions about the good life and the good society.
