Review: The Happiness Myth: Why What We Think Is Right Is Wrong

The Happiness Myth: Why What We Think Is Right Is Wrong
The Happiness Myth: Why What We Think Is Right Is Wrong by Jennifer Michael Hecht
My rating: 0 of 5 stars

Hecht explores the notion of happiness and how to get it by contrasting modern sensibilities with past perspectives on the topic. It makes for an eye-opening approach and I love the clarity of Hecht’s writing.

Fantastic. Very thoroughly researched history of how wealth and Christianity intersected during the end of the Roman Empire and the start of the Medieval era.
