About the Book: Twilight Of American Sanity

We are looking for happiness in all the wrong places. The things we believe will bring it-professional success, material goods, mood-enhancing drugs-often leave us feeling as empty as before. In our search for a panacea for all-too-human feelings of melancholy and ennui, weve lost sight of a central tenet of existence: that our lives are most fulfilling and worthwhile when we experience a share of both peaks and valleys. This is the argument behind Allen Francess The Paradox of Happiness, a meditation on living the good life from the worlds leading expert on psychiatric diagnosis. Frances begins with an examination of the self, explaining why evolution has hardwired our brains to make mistakes about what we think will bring us happiness, and what we can do to escape these destructive primordial instincts. He then looks at how our failed pursuit of happiness has created problems for us as a society, leading us to support short-term material fixes for the challenges we face instead of adopting a holistic approach that would make us happier in the long run. The Paradox of Happiness is nothing less than a guide for how to live well-and how to avoid the happiness traps that can so easily ensnare us.....
