Here at Outblush, we're not an unhappy lot of ladies by any means (maybe a little to sour and snarky on occasion, but that's charming, right?). We figure we can always use a little inner zen, which is what Jonathan Haidit's book, The Happiness Hypothesis: Finding Modern Truth in Ancient Wisdom ($12) is all about. Err, well--sort of. The book seeks to explain truths about the way humankind makes decisions--for better or worse--and what we can do to bring enlightenment into our decision-making processes. It's philosophical, anthropological, and sociological all at once and a truly fascinating read. Give it a go--even if you don't agree with all of Haidit's "wisdom," we're pretty sure you'll learn something new!
