"Happiness is our natural state, for each of us and for humanity as a whole, argues John Izzo. But that happiness is being stolen by insidious mental patterns that he depicts as thieves: the thief of control, the thief of conceit, the thief of coveting, the thief of consumption, and the thief of comfort. He discovered these thieves as he sought the true source of happiness during a year-long sabbatical, walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain and living in the Andes of Peru. This book describes the disguises these thieves wear, the tools they use to break into our hearts, and how to lock them out once and for all. Izzo shows how these same thieves of personal happiness are destroying society as well."--

The book is good and could lead you to a productive reflection on what could spoil your happiness. I liked in particular the inclusion of happiness thieves for the society as a whole. The author here, could have been bolder and avoid being "politically correct". This is the major drawback of this book. The forward part, at a certain point was about to make me abort reading the whole book. I believe it will be much better without it!
