3D of Happiness shows that the failure in finding happiness in modern times is largely due to the mistake of limiting the search for happiness to the hedonic (pleasure) dimension. It delves into the meaning and spiritual dimensions of happiness in order to help individuals increase their levels of happiness.

3D of Happiness covers a personal and scientific journey of searching for happiness through pleasure, meaning, and spirituality. It is the story of a former shepherd, Necati Aydin, who was at the bottom 1% of the world’s population, living in complete poverty and deprivation. He managed to acquire two PhDs and climbed to the top 1% in terms of possessions and position. Nonetheless, he failed to achieve happiness along the way. In 3D of Happiness, Necati shares his journey of having, doing, and being which turned out to be a cycle of deprivation, emulation, accomplishment, and disappointment. He reveals his success in finally finding happiness through a converging path of science, philosophy, and spirituality.

About the Author

Necati Aydin’s life journey began in an agricultural society as a shepherd. His journey continued in an industrial society as a college student and nurse, and he ended up in an information society as a professor. Necati’s life is the story of a former shepherd who was born in a village with no running water and electricity. The story of a student who ran away from his parents to go to school, who became the first in his village to go to college, and who became the first in his town to receive two doctoral degrees. The story of a former nurse who witnessed the death and misery of thousands of patients; the story of a father who was never hugged by his father but ended up being the best friend of his six children. The story of a youth who lived in poverty and only tasted a banana for the first time while attending college but lost the pleasure of this taste when he was able to purchase whatever he desired. In short, it is the story of seeking happiness under various life conditions. Necati currently resides in Windsor, CT.
