Description
Information
'Making Happy People' is quite simply a study of happiness. It looks at the origins of happiness within the individual during the lifelong process of development from birth to death. It also explores the relationship between happiness and success, and the ways in which early experience, parents and education influence each individual's capacity for happiness, the most sought-after and most elusive human property.

Breaking new ground in the literature of happiness, this book offers a scientific perspective on a subject that has hitherto been the preserve of philosophers, artists, psychoanalysts and self-help gurus.

All parents want their children to be happy, but few take things further than this vague wish – until things start to go wrong and unhappiness has arrived to stay. Only then do they realise that what might seem obvious at first glance is in fact far from obvious. Accessible to parents and teachers alike, 'Making Happy People' uses the perspective of psychology and biology to reveal the way to be happy and to help children become happy people for life.
