In this groundbreaking audiobook, Matthieu Ricard makes a passionate case for happiness as a goal that deserves as least as much energy as any other in our lives.

Wealth? Fitness? Career success? How can we possibly place these above true and lasting well-being? Drawing from works of fiction and poetry, Western philosophy, Buddhist beliefs, scientific research, and personal experience, Ricard weaves an inspirational and forward-looking account of how we can begin to rethink our realities in a fast-moving modern world. With its revelatory lessons and exercises, Happiness is an eloquent and stimulating guide to a happier life.

Matthieu Ricard you save my life

Matthieu's teachings and Buddhist philosophy saved my life. I suffered for many years from panic attacks, generalized anxiety, and agoraphobia. Thanks to Matthieu I was able to learn about the concept of neuroplasticity and use meditation as a tool to change my mind. Thank you my friend I hope someday you can read this.

Truly a Work of Genius!

Loved it! A scholarly review of the literature on happiness with a Buddhist philosophy sentiment. I've read several books on this topic and this one is clearly superior. The narration is also flawless and so it is a delight to listen to. You will have much to contemplate while listening to this amazing audiobook.

A great discourse on the topic of happiness

From the viewpoint of a Buddhist, it has many jewels of insight. I recommend it.
