Get Happy!!

Jackson Lears, at The Nation, reviews several recent books on how to achieve happiness.
"The worldview of the happiness manuals, like that in other self-help literature, epitomizes 'the triumph of the therapeutic' described some decades ago by the sociologist Philip Rieff: the creation of a world where all overarching structures of meaning have collapsed, and there is 'nothing at stake beyond a manipulatable sense of well-being.'"
