The Conquest of Happiness - Chapter 4

Join us as we continue with our new book by Russell entitled, "The Conquest of Happiness."  We will be discussing Chapter 4, entitled "Boredom and Excitement."  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.

As an incentive to attend this Meetup, each person will receive a free copy of the book which can be used as we study successive chapters.
