Who Doesn't Want to Be Happy?

Exploring Happiness by Sissela Bok

If there is a place where I am most often deficient in my reading of works in translation, it certainly must be works in translation.  This one sounds like a wonderful intellectual feast.  I hope I can find it in the local library soon.

(Although, it is possible this is not a translation--still, the point holds.)


  1. Steven,

    Thanks for the tip. It sounds very interesting. I just checked my local library, and it has a copy available.
