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.

Reseña del editor:

Widely admired psychological researcher Raj Raghunathan explains how the traits that usually lead to success can also lead to unhappiness--and how to be happy and successful

Fifteen years after Raj Raghunathan completed his MBA, he checked in on his old classmates and noticed something strange: many of those who had achieved the highest levels of career success were among the most dissatisfied in life. No matter how successful they were at work, they were prone to be unhappy and out of shape. Why were so many of his smartest, brightest friends so unhappy?

Raj set out to find an answer to this problem, and undertook extensive research, looking at the happiness of not just students and business people, but also of stay-at-home-parents, lawyers, and artists, among others. From his research he came upon a startling discovery: even the smartest and most successful people--despite their intellect, their drive and their knowledge--make all the same mistakes in life as their less smart, less-successful counterparts. In fact, many of the psychological traits that lead to success can foster habits that get in the way of being happy.

In his book, Raj identifies the misconceptions that smart people have about their happiness, the elements of their personality that distract them the most from achieving it, and then clears a path to building the habits and attitudes that enhance happiness in both the short and the long-run.

Buchbeschreibung PORTFOLIO, United States, 2016. Hardback. Zustand: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The first book by the creator of COURSERA(R) 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.
