Happiness fest

I've been reviewing some of my favorite books on happiness over the holidays as part of my usual yearend goal/mission/values exercise (see TEE chapter 3 here).

Here are the books I've been going over:

Learned Optimism (M. E. P. Seligman, see related post here)
Authentic Happiness (M. E. P. Seligman)
Man's Search for Meaning (V. Frankl, see related post here)
How to Do What You Love for a Living (N. Anderson)
Character Strengths and Virtues (C. Peterson & M. E. P. Seligman)
You Can Be Happy No Matter What (R. Carlson)
Nicomachean Ethics (Aristotle, see Teaching Company course here)

If you were going to read one, read Authentic Happiness. If you wanted to do a short course, do the Teaching Company course on Aritstotle's ethics.
