As a Professor of Behavioural Science at the London School of Economics, Dolan conducts original research into the measurement of happiness and its causes and consequences, including the effects of our behaviour. Here he creates a new outlook on the pursuit of happiness - it's not just how you feel, it's how you act.

Happiness by Design shows that being happier requires us to actively re-design our immediate environment. Enough has been written on how to think happy. Happiness by Design is about how to behave happy and how to incorporate the most recent research findings into our everyday lives.

Reviews for Happiness by Design: Finding Pleasure and Purpose in Everyday Life

'Few books change one's life; in 48 hours this has improved mine ... Anyone who wonders if they are living their lives as fully as they might will find ideas worth thinking about in this engaging, persuasive book.' -- The Sunday Times 'Dolan makes a persuasive case that happiness might really be simple. His book is a powerful reminder not to get caught up in overthinking things, but to focus instead on maximising what actually delivers joy ... and most of us would benefit from listening to him.' -- The Guardian 'Outstanding, cutting-edge, and profound. If you're going to read one book on happiness, this is the one.' -- Nassim Nicholas Taleb, bestselling author of The Black Swan and Antifragile
