The Conquest of Happiness - Chapter 16 - Effort and Resignation
Join us as we continue with our book by Russell entitled, "The Conquest of Happiness." We will be discussing Chapter 16, entitled "Effort and Resignation." This small volume, first published in 1930 offers the reader, according to the Atlantic Monthly, "a primer of self-regeneration." According to the Preface by Russell, he has written the book "in the belief that many people who are unhappy could become happy by well-directed effort that I have written in this book." We are hopeful that our discussions of these writings will prove informative, interesting and perhaps life-changing in making us happier than before.
