Product description

Review

“Too often, the concept of personal happiness is left out of discussions about technology and the future of our world. The Future of Happiness is a timely reminder about the importance of happiness, meaning, and our fragile, promising selves.”
—Susan Cain, author of Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking

The Future of Happiness gave me tactical tips in the first few minutes and a genuinely happier life by the end. In an age of endless interruptions, this book couldn’t have arrived at a better time.”
—Neil Pasricha, New York Times bestselling author of The Happiness Equation and The Book of Awesome

“Volumes have been written about how bad technology can be for us, but Amy Blankson is the first author I’ve seen to lay out a simple, achievable path to explain how to stay grounded and balanced in the digital era.”
—Laszlo Bock, former head of people operations at Google and bestselling author of Work Rules!

“Rather than fighting against the digital movement, we need higher-level help to harness it for our greatest joy, success, connection, and fulfillment. Amy’s book is the perfect pathway to this—offering amazing new strategies to help us access more joy and meaning while at the same time leveraging the power of technology to enhance and enrich our lives.”
—Kathy Caprino, MA, “Brave Up” writer, speaker, coach, and leadership developer

“Sometimes innovation doesn’t have to be a brand-new technology, but a segment clearly redefined that can lead to greater well-being. I am so happy to see Amy address the link between technology and happiness. This book is long overdue for both professionals and parents, and I'm sure will be wonderfully received globally.”
—John Stix, public speaker and founder of KidsWifi
