Happy: Based on "The Conquest of Happiness"

I do not wish to proclaim myself an expert in this subject. Nor is this book meant to be a new-age "sure will do it" guide on becoming happy, or being happy for that matter. I cannot assure you that the reading of this book will make you any happier. This is not a prescriptive book about happiness, though it is however based on a book that is somewhat prescriptive. This book is my way of organizing the thoughts from Bertrand Russell's "The Conquest of Happiness", providing illustrative context in a format that will be convenient to a reader from 2012 onwards. The idea for this book came to me while I was sauntering in my garden, reading Happiness intermittently in the breeze while sipping an icy glass of isotonic drink. The experience was amazing, in the horizon there is the sun setting am...
