Always a reader. Writing to remember and to share my thoughts on the books I read.
The Happiness Industry: How the Government and Big Business Sold us Well-Being by William Davies is a historical perspective on the increasing focus on measures of happiness and well-being as indicators of success. The writing is academic in approach. It sites research and anecdotal evidence from economics, neuroscience, psychology, and management to document to the increasing industry created focus on well being.
