Reviews

Smart, engaging and funny. . . will make you question everything you think you know about what you want -- Caroline Criado Perez, author of Invisible Women
Passionate, provocative. . . a manifesto for a better society * The Times *
One of the most rigorous articulations of the new mood of acceptance. . . a persuasive demolition of many of our cultural stories about how we ought to live -- Oliver Burkeman * Guardian *
A very useful antidote to the pressures of modern living. Very few books change the way you think about yourself, but this is one of them. I would particularly recommend it to young adults with all these life choices ahead of them * Tablet *
Paul Dolan knows what makes people happy - and what doesn't. Happy Ever After is illuminating, wise, profound. A magnificent achievement -- Cass Sunstein, co-author of Nudge
A smart and irreverent look at the bad advice, lame instructions, and missing ingredients in society's recipe for a happy life -- Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness
A splendid demonstration of how conventional aspirations can make us miserable -- Richard Layard, author of Happiness
A timely warning that we need to question standard assumptions about what is good for individuals and society. Dolan makes a compelling case for putting people's own perceptions of their wellbeing at the heart of policy making -- Lord Gus O'Donnell, former Cabinet Secretary
