Coming to America: obsessed with happiness, but nobody's happy -- Personal journey? it's not all about you -- Happiness for sale: self-help America -- Workaholics -- "I don't care as long as he's happy": dispatches from the parenting happiness rat race -- God's plan of happiness -- I'm not a happy person, I just play one on facebook -- Positive psychology (or if you're not happy, it's your own fault, you lazy schmuck) -- Star-spangled happy.
In America the Anxious, Whippman embarks on an uproarious pilgrimage to explore the American happiness machine, tackling both the ridiculous and the sublime. Her search to discover what, if anything, actually does make us happy unveils a startlingly straightforward, rigorously-researched universal answer that requires no hot yoga and comes absolutely free of charge.
