Gretchen Rubin is the author of several books, including the #1 New York Times and international bestseller, The Happiness Project, an account of the year she spent test-driving the wisdom of the ages, the current scientific studes, and the lessons from popular culture about how to be happier. On her well-known blog, The Happiness Project, www.happiness-project.com, she reports on her daily adventures in the pursuit of happiness. Gretchen Rubin started her career in law, and she was clerking for Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor when she realised that she really wanted to be a writer. She lives in New York City with her husband and two daughters. The Happiness Project is more than a book and a blog, it's a movement. Happiness Project groups have sprung up from San Francisco to Lexington, Kentucky to Johannesburg, where people meet to discuss their own happiness projects. Dozens of blogs have been launched by people following Gretchen's example; hundreds of book groups have discussed the book; and rights for more than 35 foreign editions have been sold. The Happiness Project was even an answer on the game-show Jeopardy! Gretchen, an enthusiastic proponent of using technology to engage with readers about ideas, has a wide, active following on social media outlets such as Twitter 'twitter.com/gretchenrubin', Facebook 'facebook.com/gretchen.rubin.9', YouTube 'youtube.com/user/GretchenRubinNY', her monthly newsletter, and her daily 'Moment of Happiness' email.
