New York Times #1 bestselling author Richard Eyre contends that the three things today's society desires most - control, ownership, and independence - are, paradoxically, the very false goals that bring the most discouragement and unhappiness in our lives.

Providing a mind-changing exploration of the inherent problems with our fixation on these three deceivers, Eyre responds with a unique and engaging counterpoint of how to switch to the joy-giving alternatives of serendipity, stewardship and interdependence and thus live a more virdent and abundant life.

Eyre, author of Teaching Your Children Values, The Entitlement Trap, and The Turning, uses his engaging and highly personal style to walk us through a mental paradigm shift that can change our lives. An impactful and illuminating exploration of how what we seek impacts our well-being, The Happiness Paradox is one of the most unique books ever written about our search for lasting joy.

Richard and Linda Eyre are New York Times #1 bestselling authors whose writing career has spanned four decades and whose books have sold in the millions. They have appeared on virtually all major national talk shows, including Oprah and Today, and have seen their books translated into a dozen languages. They write a syndicated weekly newspaper column and currently spend most of their time traveling and speaking to audiences throughout the world on families, parenting, and life-balance (and trying to keep up with their twenty-six grandchildren). The Eyres' vision statement is Fortify families by celebrating commitment, popularizing parenting, bolstering balance, and validating values. The Eyres live in Park City, Utah.

There is no dearth of happiness books these days, but most of them just flit around the edges of the subject. This book goes to the heart--to the crux--and asks us to make a fundamental flip in how we see things and what we go after. --Stephen M.R. Covey, The Speed of Trust --Stephen M.R. Covey For decades, Richard and Linda Eyre's books have inspired spouses and parents around the world to keep their families strong. Now Richard turns his focus to the much-discussed topic of human happiness and creates a whole new perspective on where real joy comes from - and where it doesn't. --J.W. Marriott, Jr.
