The Happiness Curve: Why Life Gets Better After 50
Drawing on cutting-edge research, award-winning journalist Jonathan Rauch answers all these questions. He shows that from our 20s into our 40s, happiness follows a U-shaped trajectory, a â€śhappiness curve,â€ť declining from the optimism of youth into whatâ€™s often a long, low slump in middle age, before starting to rise again in our 50s. Full of insights and data and featuring many ways to endure the slump and avoid its perils and traps, The Happiness Curve doesnâ€™t just show you the dark forest of midlife, it helps you find a path through the trees. It also demonstrates how we canâ€”and why we mustâ€”do more to help each other through the woods. Midlife is a journey we mustnâ€™t walk alone.
