Summary
When British journalist Ruth Whippman finds herself in California, wherever she goes she finds people telling her how they are working at being happier, and starts to question if she's happy? Happy enough? Could she be happier if she tried harder? How can she ensure that her children are permanently, blissfully happy? She discovers that the more people strive for happiness, the less likely they are to actually be happy - and wonders if there is a more effective, less self-involved way to find happiness than mindfully washing-up or skydiving?
