In Pursuit of Happiness

Great Experiments
People search for happiness in their own ways. Below are the memoirs of two people who after a year of intensive and creative searching, found it.

The Happiness Project by Gretchen Rubin is the story of Rubin's quest for self-improvement. Though not at all unhappy, the author dedicated a year to working at life changes. Her story may strike an inspirational nerve and encourage readers to formulate their own self-improvement programs.

In Robyn Okrant's Living Oprah : My One-Year Experiment to Walk the Walk of the Queen of Talk, the author describes a 12 month adventure following Oprah Winfrey's advice. What happened -- how and why Okrant's year went the way it did -- is the basis for this unusual book.
