The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor

This book's full title is The Happiness Advantage, The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at work. Shawn Achor has his own web site here which he shares with Michelle Gielan.

One thing that I liked about Shawn Achor approach to happiness is that he says that doing acts of kindness will add to your happiness and give you a better more positive viewpoint.
