Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0967801990, Paperback)

For the many Americans who are disaffected by the frustrating and futile "search" for joy, Mary Massaro offers a refreshingly cynical approach to happiness and a critical look at the ways in which we pursue it. With remarkable candor and incisive humor, Happiness and Other Lies presents:

* a thorough examination of happiness and the fallacies surrounding it,
* the causes of our contemporary malaise,
* the erroneous ways in which we aspire to happiness,
* the unpopular but true causes of happiness, and
* tongue-in-cheek lists that throw light on our nation's preoccupation with self-fulfillment.

From Prozac to sex manuals to the self-help industry, find out why we still feel empty . . . and still believe the lies.
