Synopsis

The Happiness Trap Pocket Book by Dr. Russ Harris

Popular myths about happiness directly contribute to our epidemic of stress, anxiety and depression - and sojme popular remedies are making it even worse!

Now, in The Happiness Trap Pocketbook, Dr Harris joins forces with acclaimed illustrator and self-help author, Bev Aislett, to produce this illustrated, engaging and genuinely helpful guide to breaking free of 'the happiness trap' and finding a true sense of wellbeing.
