Richard O’Connor makes it possible to be, finally, Happy At Last!
“Many self-help books are wildly unrealistic and not grounded in any kind of scientific evidence about how the mind actually works. Not so with Richard O'Connor's book. The author provides a clear roadmap through the opportunities, obstacles and complexities of happiness, drawing on the latest scientific research as well as his long and compassionate experience as a therapist. This is a book that leaves you wiser and better equipped to face the future.” - Daniel Nettle, Newcastle University; author of Happiness: The Science Behind Your Smile
"Richard O'Connor, having already helped us to undo depression and chronic stress, now helps us to do happiness. Filled with humor and humanity, this book gives an up-to-date summary of the best of what research and clinical experience has to tell us about being happy. O'Connor is an engaging writer who holds the reader's attention while providing real substance." - Bill O'Hanlon, author of Change 101
“…a graceful blend of philosophy, research, and practical advice…substantive yet accessible and engaging.” – Library Journal
“After such a frenetic year, this book is rather a small pleasure.” – Winston-Salem Journal
