About this item

From bestselling author John Izzo comes this practical and inspirational guide to happiness—not finding happiness, but protecting the innate sense of well-being that resides within each of us at every moment.

Dr. Izzo says that happiness and contentment are our natural states—and cites ancient spiritual traditions and modern neuroscience to back himself up. It was on a sabbatical he took to find out why he lacked a sense of joy in his life, despite being a successful consultant, speaker, and author that he realized what the cause of much of our unhappiness is. Reflecting as he walked the Camino de Santiago in Spain, and spent time in the deserts of Morocco and high in the Andes of Peru, he saw that there are specific mental activities and attitudes that take our happiness from us. He calls them the five thieves of happiness: the thief of control, the thief of conceit, the thief of coveting, the thief of consumption, and the thief of comfort. This is a thoughtful exploration of why we let each of these thieves in, how they steal our happiness from us, and what attitudes we can adopt and actions we can take to effectively lock them out.
