The voyage of life: Thomas Cole's journey -- and mine -- What makes us happy (and doesn't): the strange illogic of life satisfaction -- A timely discovery: how unsuspecting economists (and apes) found the happiness curve -- The shape of the river: time, happiness, and the curve of the U -- The expectations trap: midlife malaise is often about nothing -- The paradox of aging: why getting old makes you happier -- Crossing toward wisdom: the happiness curve has a purpose, and it's social -- Helping ourselves: how to get through the U -- Helping each other: bringing midlife out of the closet -- Epilogue: Gratitude.
Draws on cutting-edge scientific studies to discuss the U-shaped trajectory of happiness, which declines from the optimism of youth before surging upward again after age fifty, and offers ways to endure the slump during midlife.
