We all want to be happy. But what does ‘happiness’ mean? And what must we do if we wish to achieve it?



Never before in history has so much been written about happiness by so many. Every generation seeks it out. Every civilization defines it for themselves.



In this absorbing book one of the leading spiritual writers of our times, Joan Chittister, surveys humankind’s long quest for happiness, in different periods and different cultures and religious traditions. She finds that the definition of happiness is a very personal thing. Every single human being has to shape it alone and individually.



'Happiness', she says, 'is something each of us discovers for ourselves. It is the great pursuit of our lives, and it as an intensely personal one.’



Joan Chittister is the author of 35 books, an internationally known author, lecturer and broadcaster, a regular visitor to the UK, and the executive director of Benetvision: A Resource and Research Center for Contemporary Spirituality. She is past president of the Conference of American Benedictine Prioresses and the Leadership Conference of Women Religious.
