In this updated edition of The Happiness Handbook Dr Sharp introduces his latest and most powerful happiness tool: the CHOOSE Model. This distinctive new approach incorporates findings from the last few decades of positive psychology research and presents them in a way that is both practical and memorable. Timothy Sharp says: “There’s no doubt that happiness is something you choose – and this new model will help you make more decisions that will lead to more happiness.”
