If you’re happy with your job or career, if you feel your work/life balance is fine or even if you feel content with your life, this book is probably not for you. That said maybe after reading a few chapters you may see your life through different clearer eyes. If you have ever felt uncomfortable shopping for overpriced products on your high street, while passing the homeless, this book may appeal to you or at very least provoke thought.
Our health has deteriorated due to working longer hours, in jobs that are not as physically demanding as they once were. Remember if we have food in our fridge, if we have clothes in your wardrobe, if we have a bed to sleep in and a roof over your head, we are already financially wealthier than over 75% of the world’s population.
Have we become greedy, materialistic, unhealthier and unfulfilled, at least in comparison to previous generations? The author attempts to explain that there is a strong correlation between a modern working life, depression, deterioration in health and general unhappiness. Near all religions and Greek philosophers teach that a simpler way of life is the key to happiness, but despite of thousands of years of knowledge on the subject and solid research, we still seem to be moving away from what we desire the most. Happiness.
