  • Smart, engaging and funny. A book that will make you question everything you think you know about what you want

    Caroline Criado Perez, author of Invisible Women
  • A passionate, provocative book. It isn't just a self-help book. It is a manifesto for a better society

    The Times
  • One of the most rigorous articulations of the new mood of acceptance...a persuasive demolition of many of our cultural stories about how we ought to live

    Oliver Burkeman, Guardian
  • A star

  • [Praise for Happiness by Design] Few books change one's life; in 48 hours this has improved mine

    Jenni Russell, Sunday Times
  • [Praise for Happiness by Design] Dolan is especially illuminating when it comes to bigger life-choices . . . His book is a powerful reminder not to get caught up in overthinking things, but to focus instead on maximising what actually delivers joy . . . and most of us would benefit from listening to him

  • [Praise for Happiness by Design] Outstanding, cutting-edge, and profound

  • [Praise for Happiness by Design] The book that will make you quit your job

    New Statesman
  • A very useful antidote to the pressures of modern living. Very few books change the way you think about yourself, but this is one of them. I would particularly recommend it to young adults with all these life choices ahead of them.

  • A timely warning that we need to question standard assumptions about what is good for individuals and society. Dolan makes a compelling case for putting people's own perceptions of their wellbeing at the heart of policy making

    Lord Gus O’Donnell, former Cabinet Secretary
