Happiness: The Art of Living with Peace, Confidence and Joy
In the midst of a successful business career, Doug Smith received life-altering news that set him on an entirely new journey to understand what leads to truly joyful, meaningful living-in other words, what leads to happiness. Through research and study, he began to understand that what the most joyful among us have in common is that they remember the past with peace, anticipate the future with confidence, and live in the present with joy and exuberance.
Thriving in the
Second Half of Life
In Doug Smith's best-selling first book, Happiness: The Art of Living with Peace, Confidence and Joy, he detailed 13 skills that enable living an accomplished, meaningful and joyful life...what positive psychologists refer to as “flourishing.” In this second book, with the help of Ken Murphy, he looks at these skills through the lens of the second half of life and offers new tools and new ways to use them. The result is a guidebook for successfully navigating the transition to a thriving second half of life.
