The Conquest of Happiness by Bertrand Russell
Famed 20th century philosopher and mathematician Bertran Russell sets out to deliver a guide explaining the root causes of unhappiness and the core aspects of leading a happy life. Though written in the early 1900s the advice is just as applicable today then it was back then. Perhaps even more so, as he delves into topics as envy and fear of public opinion as a couple of causes of unhappiness, which we are constantly subjected to in today’s social media world. His rational approach to happiness was inspiring and useful.
