By Tal Ben-Shahar

Title available in paperback?: No
Pages: 224

Description of book: Ben-Shahar is currently a professor of psychology at Harvard and a leading researcher in the new field of positive psychology. The whole book is about the science of how to be happier and ultimately how to lead a fulfilling life. I think it would be applicable to all students because no matter what you do/study this knowledge can be applied to it, it is universal. This book ties in perfectly with the theme "Revolutions in Thought" because it truly and really is a revolution in thought, it requires you to change the way you think, your attitude, in order to be happy.
