Happiness is one word that seems to have a million meanings. For one person it could mean health, for another it’s material success. What is the universal meaning of happiness? And how do we achieve it? Today, we have a three-part answer from an expert on happiness. Arthur Brooks teaches the course "Managing Happiness" at Harvard University. He wrote his latest book, Build the Life You Want: The Art and Science of Getting Happier, with an illustrious co-author– THE Oprah Winfrey.
