Lawyer Gretchen Rubin had an epiphany one rainy afternoon on a bus, realising she wasn't focusing on the things that really mattered. So she decided to dedicate a year to finding more happiness in her life. In The Happiness Project, her account of that year, Gretchen tests age-old theories such as can money buy happiness, and takes lessons from a variety of experts, from Aristotle to Oprah, about how to be happier. Each month she tackled a new set of resolutions, such as keeping a gratitude notebook and finding more fun. It's subtitled Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun. If you want to sign up for your own year of The Happiness Project in 2010, head to her blog.
