Happy Money: The Science of Smarter Spending, was recently released by Simon & Schuster. Coauthor Liz Dunn is not only brilliant, but also a shark attack survivor and new mom.

The book provides five research-based principles designed to help people use their money in happier ways, whether they have a little or a lot of it. It’s packed with recent research and examples of the principles in action at companies from Google to Charmin, and ends with a discussion of how governments can encourage happier spending, too.  Along the way, you’ll learn:
  • why you would be just as happy driving a Ford Escort as a BMW
  • why most residents of London have never visited Big Ben
  • why commercials make TV better
  • why you should be giving more money to charity
