Book Synopsis

Are you, like milllions of Americans, caught in the happiness trap? Russ Harris explains that the way most of us go about trying to find happiness ends up making us miserable, driving the epidemics of stress, anxiety, and depression. This empowering book presents the insights and techniques of ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy) a revolutionary new psychotherapy based on cutting-edge research in behavioral psychology. By clarifying your values and developing mindfulness (a technique for living fully in the present moment), ACT helps you escape the happiness trap and find true satisfaction in life.

The techniques presented in The Happiness Trap will help readers to:

   • Reduce stress and worry
   • Handle painful feelings and thoughts more effectively
   • Break self-defeating habits
   • Overcome insecurity and self-doubt
   • Create a rich, full, and meaningful life

    I thoroughly enjoyed and appreciated the approach taken in this book. Unlike other self-help publications, The Happiness Trap does not promise an instant fix to your problems. Instead, it deals with real, proven methods on mindfulness by utilising various aspects of ACT. I recommend this for anyone who genuinely wants to "take life by the horns" and deal with their problems and issues head-on. In a world where everyone seems to be seeking a "cure all" pill, it is quite refreshing to learn about ways and techniques to help yourself in a proactive way.
