Achieving True Happiness

How We Can Find It and How We Can Keep It

We can learn how to achieve true happiness!

Michaela Brohm-Badry lives in a watermill in the wilderness together with her dogs. She was a successful professor for Learning and Didactics – until she barely survived a ruptured aneurism in her head. Motivated by this existential experience, she sets out to search for true happiness in life. Because, according to neuropsychology, happiness is an ability all of us can master.

In her book, Michaela Brohm-Badry skillfully weaves together her personal story with findings on individual self-fulfillment and Positive Psychology. Thereby, she achieves a unique effect that draws the readers’ attention and gives them advice, in the best sense of the word, for their own search for what’s truly important in life. Michaela Brohm-Badry shows that you can learn happiness – like swimming or playing an instrument – and that this involves the full development of our talents and abilities. People who achieve this state live healthier, are more satisfied with their relationships and occupations and are therefore more successful both professionally and privately.
