HAPPINESS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM by Dennis Prager (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“Astonishing....Anyone who feels unhappy more than he would like will benefit from reading this book.” (Wall Street Journal)
Lecturer, theologian, philosopher, and radio personality Dennis Prager ruminates on happiness and why it is so difficult for most of us to achieve. Though human nature is insatiable and tends to equate happiness with success or fun, Prager contends that it is achievable through self-control and acceptance.

When you ask people about their most cherished values in life, "happiness" is always at the top of the list. But surprisingly few people claim real happiness. We seem to be completely satisfied with nothing, and indeed, there is little correlation between the circumstances of people's lives and how happy they are. In this book, lecturer, theologian, philosopher, and Los Angeles radio personality Dennis Prager ruminates on what makes happiness such a serious problem to solve. He discusses the difference between happiness and success and between happiness and fun and how to adjust our expectations of life.
