The Humanist Approach to Happiness
The Humanist Approach to Happiness: Practical Wisdom

This book is not so much a philosophy book as it is a handbook for life. It is a book about the pragmatic reasons why being a good person has benefits here and now.

This book will help you talk to your tweens and teens about why ethics are important and how to integrate ethics into their decision making.

This book is meant to be discussed. 

By sharing her pragmatic Humanist approach to living life fully and intentionally, Jennifer has transformed the lives of those who have been touched by her writing. By encouraing people to be the best, most ethical humans they can be, she consistently challenges people to think about and question, who they are, what they are and more importantly, how they want to be.

Whether the topic is bullying, choosing friends, being financially responsible or simply why not to cheat, she makes difficult topics seem easy. Her advice is so practical it will leave you thinking, "why didn't I think of that?"


Excerpt

People often treat responsibility as if it is a bad word. Something we should avoid if we want to be happy. Just the opposite is true. Freedom, and therefore happiness, can only be achieved through responsibility. When you accept responsibility for your life, you gain control over it in a way that is unparalleled. No longer a victim of fate, you can do something to improve your life and the lives of those around you.



Professional Reviews

Incredible!
Wow! What an incredible job! It is filled with a tremendous amount of wonderfully practical advice (or wisdom as you say) and is a marvelous illustration of Applied Humanism.
Bob Bhaerman - Director, Kochhar Humanist Education Center


Common Sense Gem
In her explorations of universal themes such as embracing your inner dork and grounding your decisions in reality, Hancock manages to remind the reader of a few common sense gems that really will help any person lead a happier life. I recommend, not only that you read this book, but that you give it to someone who is struggling in their pursuit of life’s great goal – happiness.
Kyle Tissue - Tuesday Afternoon


Intelligent, Unpretentious
Jen never tries to speak universally. She speaks for herself, clearly and informally, thinking out loud about decision making, simplicity, honesty, body ethics, sex, vibrators, relationships, addiction, self-image, pooping, death, and more. Her own thoughts are salted with quotes from Bertrand Russell to Britney Spears, including some keepers I hadn’t seen before. The net effect is a conversation about everything with an intelligent, unpretentious friend.

Dale McGowan - Parenting Beyond Belief
