Summary:From the bliss of lingering in a warm bed on a winter morning, to a bracing springtime walk by the seaside, A PRIVATE HISTORY OF HAPPINESS offers the reader a wealth of delightfully fresh perceptions of where and how happiness may be found. These 99 moments of happiness are arranged by themes-Morning, Friendship, Garden, Family, Leisure, Nature, Food and Drink, Well-being, Creativity, Love and Evening-and each is followed by a brief description and commentary that set the extract in context and encourage further reflection. Drawing on a wide and international range of sources-poets, artists, scientists, philosophers, novelists and others, from Ptolemy to Tolstoy, George Myerson reveals that small, unpretentious joys have been shared by human beings across cultures and over thousands of years: he invites us to discover the happiness in our own lives that can be found here and now.
