Product description

Review

This brilliant book is chock full of unexpected findings, revelatory insights, and consoling wisdom about aging, happiness, and the stages of life. I would say that everyone in his or her forties should read it--it will be a soothing balm for those in the dark wood of middle age--but that's too limiting: really, every thinking adult should read this stimulating intellectual adventure story, which is also a genuinely helpful guidebook to life ― Scott Stossel, author of My Age of Anxiety: Fear, Hope, Dread, and the Search for Peace of Mind and editor of The Atlantic

Essential reading for everyone over 40 ― George E. Vaillant M.D., Professor of Psychiatry, Harvard Medical School

By supplanting dated cliches with compelling scholarship, Rauch offers a fresh and reassuring vision of aging that supersedes superficial fixations. ― The Washington Post

Fascinating. powerful and uplifting. The Happiness Curve is filled with useful, interesting facts and shows us how to steer through the different stages of life ― The Lady

Rauch fills his book with reassuring research on why a midlife malaise is normal, as well as some sound lessons on how to cultivate happiness in general ― Wall Street Journal

A great reminder that our happiness is not set in stone and growing older can be something to look forward to ― Dr Mark Williamson, Director of Action for Happiness --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
