Description
Why does happiness get harder in your forties? Why do you feel in a slump when you're successful? Where does this malaise come from? And, most important, will it ever end? Drawing on cutting-edge research, journalist Jonathan Rauch answers all these questions. He shows that happiness follows a U-shaped trajectory, a happiness curve, declining from the optimism of youth into what's often a long, low slump in middle age, before starting to rise again in our fifties. This isn't a midlife crisis, though. Rauch reveals that this slump is instead a natural stage of life -- and an essential one. By shifting priorities away from competition and toward compassion, it equips you with new tools for wisdom and gratitude to win the third period of life. And Rauch can testify to this personally because it was his own slump, despite acclaim as a journalist and commentator, that compelled him to investigate the happiness curve. His own story and the stories of many others from all walks of life -- from a steelworker and a limo driver to a telecom executive and a philanthropist -- show how the ordeal of midlife malaise reboots our values and even our brains for a rebirth of gratitude.--,Provided by publisher.
