The premise of this book, and his first book, is that happiness is natural to us. It is already inside of us waiting to be released. We only have to turn our attention to it. Like a light switch, we only have to learn to turn it on, and keep it turned on.
Real happiness does not depend on the circumstances of your life. You can be happier, right now, without anything changing in your life. If everything in your life is going great, you can be happy. If everything in your life is going wrong, you can be happy. Rich, poor, old, young, male, female, blue-collar, white-collar, pink-collar, no-collar, you can be happy.
Learning to be happy may be the most important thing we can do in life. It may even be the purpose in life. What psychologists have found is that compared to those who are not happy, happy people have better relationships and better health, they are more successful, and they live longer.
Children are born happy, and we expect see them playing and being happy. We do not expect so much happiness when we leave childhood. However, the power to be naturally happy that we knew as children is still there; it never left. This aim of this book is to help you find it again.

About the Author
D.E. Hardesty, has been studying spirituality for over forty years. He started writing about happiness in response to his daughter's questions about what to do in life. As she entered the critical "quarterlife crisis" years of the early twenties, she had many questions about how to be happy, what goals to pursue, and what to study in school. As he says in the preface to his first book, Finding Your Power to Be Happy, "I had found my path to happiness, and I was living it. She was just starting on that path. What should I tell her?" His first book is an extended answer to her questions. His second book, Be Happier in One Hour, continues exploring the ways to find happiness in our lives. About his writing he says "They say that if everyone lights a single candle there will be light and peace in the world. This is my candle." D.E. Hardesty lives in Northern California with his wife Beth and their cat Patrick.
