The Secret of Happiness - Book By Jas Mand

This is not a self-help book in the conventional sense, where you will find readymade solutions to all your life’s problems. This book does not endorse any religious methodology to achieve a state of bliss as most religious claim. The author has attempted to approach the subject of happiness from the scientific angle of a rationalist.

Unlike self-help books, it does not offer first-aid. It proposes regular and non-stop work on your growth all the time. The basic emphasis is on cultivating the attitude of happiness, which primarily is in one’s own hands. If this book succeeds in helping you a bit in this direction, author shall feel justified in writing it.
