Can You

Learn to Be


YES . . . according to the teacher of Harvard

University’s most popular and life-changing

course. One out of every five Harvard students

has lined up to hear Tal Ben-Shahar’s

insightful and inspiring lectures on that

ever-elusive state: HAPPINESS.


Grounded in the revolutionary “positive psychology” movement,

Ben-Shahar ingeniously combines scientific studies, scholarly research, self-help advice, and spiritual enlightenment. He weaves them together into a set of principles that you can apply to your daily life. Once you open your heart and mind to Happier ’s thoughts, you will feel more fulfilled, more connected . . . and, yes, HAPPIER.

“Dr. Ben-Shahar, one of the most popular teachers in Harvard’s recent history, has written a personal, informed, and highly enjoyable primer on how to become happier. It would be wise to take his advice.”

—Ellen J. Langer, author of Mindfulness and On Becoming an Artist

“This fine book shimmers with a rare brand of good sense that is imbedded in scientific knowledge about how to increase happiness. It is easy to see how this is the backbone of the most popular course at Harvard today."

—Martin E. P. Seligman, author of Authentic Happiness

If you're a “rat racer,” who lives in

the hope of being happy in the future, and yet is

unable to enjoy the here-and-now . . .

If you're a “hedonist,” who finds

some pleasure in the good things in life—good

wine, good food, good company—and yet is

unable to enjoy lasting fulfillment . . .

If you're a “nihilist,” who’s completely

given up on finding happiness . . .you can learn to be happier!

Thousands of Harvard University students have

discovered that you can become happier. They

learned the secret to lasting fulfillment from

acclaimed teacher Tal Ben-Shahar’s class on

positive psychology—a branch of psychology

that combines the latest scientific research with

good old common sense. Now you can join his

class and learn how positive psychology can

make you happier right now—no lottery windfall,

job promotion, or new love required.

Think of Happier as your own personal

workbook. As you read each chapter’s illuminating

discussion on happiness and incorporate

its simple exercises into your daily routine, you

will see every aspect of your life with new eyes

and a new sense of purpose.

When you learn how to live for today and

for tomorrow at the same time, you learn how to

balance your immediate personal needs with

long-term goals and enjoy life as you never have
