The author of this book offers an interesting guide to the familiar concept of happiness. Aware that many self-help books are merely the opinions of the respective author, this book, The Science of Happiness, strives to provide the solid factual data where other guides on happiness fail. The author claims to have read hundreds of psychology studies on happiness and has incorporated data from more than 50 of these studies in this easy-to-read text based on psychology research.
The first part of this book covers the connection between health and happiness. This includes examining how emotions such as anger and sadness can be detrimental to our health—or at least affect us temporarily in negative ways. The second part of this guide will offer suggestions for a happier life and debunk many of the more common yet stubborn myths, such as those surrounding social media influence and fake smiles. The third section of this self-help resource will hopefully provide the key to sustainable happiness. Readers who adopt the suggested practices contained herein will not only boost their positive emotions but also greatly improve their overall well-being. For those willing to keep an open mind, study the material, and master the techniques described in its pages, The Science of Happiness could very well be an insightful journey offering a new perspective on life and well-being.
The third novel in Terry Pratchett and Stephen Baxter’s “Long Earth” series, which Io9 calls “a brilliant science fiction collaboration.” 2040-2045: In the years after the cataclysmic Yellowstone eruption there is massive economic dislocation as populations flee Datum Earth to myriad Long Earth worlds. Sally, Joshua, and Lobsang are all involved in this perilous rescue work when, out of the blue, Sally is contacted by her long-vanished father and inventor of the original Stepper device, Willis Linsay. He tells her he is planning a fantastic voyage across the Long Mars and wants her to accompany him. But Sally soon learns that Willis has an ulterior motive for his request. .

For Joshua, the crisis he faces is much closer to home. He becomes embroiled in the plight of the Next: the super-bright post-humans who are beginning to emerge from their “long childhood” in the community called Happy Landings, located deep in the Long Earth. Ignorance and fear have caused “normal” human society to turn against the Next. A dramatic showdown seems inevitable. . . .
