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

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

    The Times
  • 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

  • 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 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

    Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness
  • A splendid demonstration of how conventional aspirations can make us miserable

    Richard Layard, author of Happiness
  • The book that will make you quit your job

  • Paul Dolan know what makes people happy - and what doesn't. Happy Ever After is illuminating, wise, even profound. A magnificent achievement
