"A charming read to remind you that wisdom about happiness is often right around the corner."--Adam Grant, New York Times-bestselling author of Give and Take and Originals, and coauthor of Option B, with Sheryl Sandberg

"When a happiness expert like Ben-Shahar turns to someone else for advice, you know the advice has got to be good. Short Cuts to Happiness offers accessible, universal wisdom that puts a life of meaning and fulfillment within reach--and sets a very high bar for my next trip to the barber!"--Colin Beavan, author of No Impact Man and How to Be Alive

"Who knew that a trip to the barber could offer the secret to a happy life? In Short Cuts to Happiness, Tal Ben-Shahar shows how powerful insights grow from simple words of wisdom and how happiness can be found in surprising places--the smell of lilies, a good laugh, or a casual chat with a barber. In these pages, the pioneer of positive psychology finds a whole new way to help readers understand what it means to live life to its fullest. Like a great haircut, this book will leave you feeling sharper, more energized, and eager to take on the world."--Alex Palmer, New York Times-bestselling author
