Written by a local author! Accessibly written with a lot of great information--about positive psychology, economic and social constructs, happiness skills, and more--all condensed into easily digestible essays, or what were originally sermons. Sassaman's voice is kind and gentle, and this book makes me want to be that way too! I think everyone should read this book, so we can be the change we want to see in the world. So necessary for these dark times.— Sam
Warm, enlightening, and inspiring, this is a happiness book like no other, making clear the interconnected nature of both personal and international happiness movements. Preaching Happiness relies on spirituality, history, economics, and conflict resolution theory to show that spiritual transformation is necessary to create new systems of well-being. Inviting and accessible, with easy-to-read personal stories interwoven with research and expertise, it is full of helpful, and hopeful, information for those seeking to make the changes necessary to live a full and happy life, and, to create a just and joyful world.
