The search for happiness is without a doubt one of our greatest preoccupations. In this fascinating volume of essays and anecdotes, influential writers from classical times to the early 20th century explore what it means to be happy.

Whilst Epicurus sets out some principles for happiness, Jerome K. Jerome suggests with characteristic wit that we eat, drink and be merry and Ralph Waldo Emerson explains how friendship contributes to a happy state.

Writer Zachary Seager has selected and introduced an inspiring array of insightful writing which combines self help, erudition and dazzling wisdom to create a book to treasure and to guide you through life.
