In “The Giving Way to Happiness: The Life-Changing Power of Giving,” author Jenny Santi shares how the act of giving actually improves our own lives, as well as helps people in need. Whether we give in the form of money, expertise, time or love, giving can help people from all walks of life find purpose and joy. Drawing on the wisdom of past and present, as well as scientific research, Santi makes a case that the key to happiness lies in helping those around us.
The book uses real world examples from actress Goldie Hawn, Nobel Peace Prize winner Muhammad Yunus, Teach for America founder Wendy Kopp, philanthropist Richard Rockefeller, environmentalist Philippe Cousteau and many others.
Santi turns conventional wisdom about what it takes to be happy upside down and reveals the surprising reasons that have led so many people to live lives full of meaning, purpose and happiness.
“The Giving Way to Happiness” is available on www.800ceoread.com for $20.76.
