Does the pursuit of happiness make us miserable?

The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking

In this fascinating book, Oliver Burkeman argues that 'positive thinking' and relentless optimism aren't the solution to the happiness dilemma, but part of the problem. And that there is, in fact, an alternative path to contentment and success that involves embracing the things we spend our lives trying to avoid - uncertainty, insecurity, pessimism and failure. Thought-provoking, counter-intuitive and ultimately uplifting, The Antidote is a celebration of the power of negative thinking.

Chris Davis (@specularworld) recommends this book to Epic Times: "With such a huge amount of 'positive thinking' and goal setting books around, promising the secret to happiness and success, it's great to read something looking at this culture as a whole, and why happiness isn't so simple. It's a really funny and though provoking read, with some amazing insights".
