"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
"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

I found your writing style very personal, warm, engaging and humorous... Very readable and user-friendly. Your 'dispassionate passion' in the pursuit of your research on the topic comes shining through :-) The detail and meticulousness in explaining a concept and presenting data supporting it, is remarkable. The way the 'sins' and 'habits' are organised is very helpful. I particularly loved the chapter on mindfulness. The accompanying exercises are very apt and helpful.
Found some interesting similarities between MBA (as proposed by you), the Hero's journey and the Tarot Cards approaches!!
Raj: Mastery -- Belonging -- Autonomy
Hero's journey: Individuation -- Self-mastery -- Selfless service
Tarot : Wholeness -- Connection -- Accomplishment
Btw, the back cover blurb sounds not very accurate, in fact a bit obscure...
