Blurb:

What if everything you ever learned about the pursuit of happiness was a lie? What if the pursuit of happiness was not your birthright, or some wonderful experience made of sugar, spice, and everything nice, but rather the culprit behind the chronic misery in America?

 

One hundred seventy million prescriptions for antidepressants were filled in 2005 alone. In a culture inundated with yellow smiley faces, why are there so many unhappy people? Dr. L. A. Lemmons set out to find the answer. And after 10 years of research, she concluded that it is the pursuit of happiness itself that is responsible for sabotaging the life and liberty of We the People.

 

In this forward-thinking treatise, Dr. Lemmons uproots the myth that happiness is the source of human well-being. She shows instead how the pursuit of happiness damages our innate programming and causes people to behave in ways that are antithetical to their genetics—devoid of heart, brains, and courage.

 

In 2008 scientists deemed happiness a gleefully infectious agent. But never in the history of man has an infectious agent been a good thing. Happiness is no exception to the rule. If Happiness Is Contagious, Why Haven’t I Caught It Yet? shows how and why we have been led astray by happiness propaganda, and how that propaganda stealthily erodes our finances, infects our relationships, and brings pathology to our lives. More importantly, the book offers a way to neutralize its effects, so that we are able to think more clearly, love deeper, and find the guts to stand up for our life and liberty.
