F*ck Happiness

Ariel Gore wanted to see if science could help her be happier. And the more she read, the more she realized that the psychology of happiness is full of studies by, for, and about straight cis white men. She set out to find out why her own experience as a woman and mother isn’t reflected in the research, and how we can do it better. The resulting book is fascinating, lyrical, and profoundly affecting.
