Críticas:

"This book highlights how some of the very things that make us smart and successful can also undermine our happiness. It's a practical, engaging read on how to lead a fulfilling life."
-Adam Grant, author of Give and Take and Originals

"Raj's book presents a clear perspective on what it takes to lead a life of happiness and fulfillment. What I like most about the book is that it proves, using rigourous science, something that I have long held: the recipe for a happy life is also one for a life of service and success. This is a book that everyone, and particularly the smart-and-successful, should read and assimilate."
-John Mackey, co-CEO of Whole Foods Market

This book is a landmark contribution to the burgeoning literature on leading fuller, happier, more fulfilling lives. With a scholar's sensibility, Raj brilliantly marshalls extensive research evidence that supports his simple yet profound prescriptions for better living. I have no doubt that this book will come to be regarded as a classic in the field; it will help change countless lives for the better, as Raj's online course is already doing.
-Raj Sisodia, co-author of Everybody Matters and Conscious Capitalism

"Tell a man a joke and he'll be happy for a moment. Give a man Raj's book, and he'll be happy forever! While you are at it, get yourself a copy of this excellent, well-researched book. It will make you smarter and happier.
-Peter McGraw, Director of the Humor Research Lab and co-author of The Humor Code

"A compelling and highly profitable read. Get this book, mark it up with highlighters and practice, practice, practice. Your life WILL improve."
-Srikumar Rao, author of Happiness at Work, TED speaker and consultant.

"This is an empirically-grounded, practical, and fun-to-read book that will help you get the most out of your life and find the happiness you really want. A must-read for anyone searching for the true meaning of success."
-Kristin Neff, Ph.D., author of Self Compassion

Raghunathan gives you the tools you need to lead a more satisfying life. He roots his recommendations in good science, and then provides a wonderful set of tools to put you on the path to long-term path to happiness. Better still, even reading this book is a joy.
-Art Markman, Ph.D., author of Smart Thinking and Smart Change

"This book will help you keep the upbeat approach to life that will open the door to undreamed of possibilities. Definitely a keeper!"
-Barbara Oakley, Professor of Engineering, Oakland University, and co-instructor of the most popular MOOC ever--Learning How to Learn

"How important do I think it is for you to read this book? Let me just say that if you are smart and successful and yet feel that you aren't as happy as you could--or want to--be, I wouldn't just recommend that you read this book. I would say that you owe it to yourself to drop everything else you are doing and start reading the book now!"
-Marshall Goldsmith, CEO-coach and author of Triggers

Reseña del editor:

The first book by the creator of COURSERA®'s most popular online course in 2015, "A Life of Happiness and Fulfillment"

Could the same traits that drive your career success also be keeping you from being happier?


Fifteen years after getting his MBA, Raj Raghunathan spent some time with his old classmates. He noticed that though they’d all done well, there didn’t appear to be much correlation between their academic success and career success. What Raj found even more curious was the even smaller correlation between career success and what he calls life success. The greater the career success, the more unhappy, out of shape, harried and distracted his friends were.
 
If intelligence helps with decision-making, smart people should naturally make better life choices. So why are so many of the smartest, brightest, most successful people profoundly unhappy?  Raj set out to find an answer to this problem, and extensively researched happiness not just of students and business people, but also stay-at-home-parents, lawyers, and artists, among others.
 
If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Happy? takes readers on a fun and meaningful tour of the best research available on how some of the very determinants of success may also come to deflate happiness. Raghunathan explores the seven most common inclinations that successful people need to overcome, and the seven habits they should adopt instead. Among his surprising findings...
 
·The correlation between wealth and happiness is much smaller than you'd expect it to be
·Generosity is not only a key to happiness, but a determining factor of long term success
·Appreciating uncertainty, rather than seeking  full control of outcomes, is necessary for happiness
 
If You’re So Smart, Why Aren’t You Happy? will give you a powerful new perspective on your work, personal goals and relationships, whether you’re already successful or just starting out.
