Hardwiring Happiness

by Rick Hanson

Hardwiring Happiness

Rick Hanson

Overview

Rick Hanson is impressive in spite of his very modest, calm and rather introverted nature. He's not a showman, but there's something profound about the things he talks about and how he talks about them, which leaves a bigger impact than you might expect.

The second darts idea from one of his earlier books, Buddha's Brain, is one of the best practices to control your reactions to bad events. That book was about accepting the things you can't change. This one, Hardwiring Happiness, is about how to proactively battle negativity and overcome your tendency to exaggerate the negative. It explains why we obsess about the bad stuff and what we can do to change that.
