Seven must-read books on happiness

In 2011 at Brain Pickings, Maria Popova came up with seven must-read books on the art & science of happiness, including:
Stumbling On Happiness by Daniel Gilbert

Nearly four years ago, Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert published Stumbling On Happiness. To this day, it remains the best-researched yet captivatingly digestible book on the art and science of happiness, exposing with equal parts wit and scientific rigor the many misconceptions we have about happiness, the tricks our minds play on us in its pursuit and how the limitations of our imagination get in the way of the grand quest.
Read about another book on Popova's list.
