Overview

This is a book that basically says - here are personal ethics, here is why they are important, and here is how you can apply them to your daily life and why doing so will help you live a happier more productive life. Life isn't easy. It is filled with challenges. How we navigate those challenges determines our success in life. If you want to learn more about how to think more effectively about the choices you make, this book will help.

The Humanist approach to Happiness was written as a way to encourage young people to think about and discuss their personal ethics and values in the context of every day decision making. In other words, how can they be the best most ethical person they can be. How can and why should they be ethical with their friends? What values should they be considering when they are deciding whether or not to try drugs and to drink alcohol? How and why should we be ethical while dating, and breaking up? How can we apply our values to ourselves when we are grieving? And most importantly, why all this matters.

    A Great Guide for Living Your Life

    I enjoyed The Humanist Approach to Happiness very much. As a 47-year old adult, I'm glad to say that throughout the years I've utilized much of the advice from this book. Of course this was accomplished and learned on my own through trial and error prior to owning this book just several weeks ago. With that in mind, I tell you that this is the book I wish I had during my high school and college years when I was forming the base to my adulthood. Perhaps I could have been the well-adjusted person I am today a lot sooner. I hope today's younger generation and also those people who are newly discovering Humanism will find this book enlightening and practical. Jennifer Hancock is a wonderful and devoted spokesperson for Humanism and further proves it with this book.
