Algebra. Trigonometry. Quantum Physics. Happiness.
According to the international bestselling author Neil Pasricha, all of these topics share one commonality: equations. But how can happiness can be boiled down to a simple equation?

In his latest book, The Happiness Equation, Pasricha challenges readers to embrace his formula for happiness: Want Nothing + Do Anything = Have Everything. It is not surprising that the man who brought us the Book of Awesome knows a thing or two about getting the most out of life.

In his fifth book, the author shares the seven secrets to finding happiness. Each chapter unfolds layer upon layer of insightful and meaningful life lessons that Pasricha has collected throughout his academic and employment endeavors.

Unlike many authors that are hoping to produce a page turning novel that can be devoured in one sitting, Pasricha challenges readers to take their time and to change reading spots while enjoying this book. Although counterintuitive to my typical reading fashion, I took him up on the challenge and read The Happiness Equation in bed, in the park, along the river, on the couch, and anywhere else that I could imagine. Much to my amazement, switching my physical location actually altered my mental space which allowed me to get even more out of this enlightening read.

Of the many incredible lessons found in this perceptive non-fiction work, the line that has stuck with me most comes from the incredible mind of Mahatma Gandhi who proclaims that “Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.”
Through Pasricha’s heartfelt writing, readers are able to find advice without condescension, to rearrange their priorities without sacrifice, and to find more time in each day without the use of a time turner.
