13 Amazing Books to Devour

By Todd B. Kashdan Ph.D.

Each year I list my favorite books of the year. I felt the need to deviate from the mainstream media tradition of listing the notable books published within the year.

The secret of happiness is a concern of growing importance in the modern era, as increased financial security has given many the time to focus on self-growth.
