    Who should attend: All Federal Government or DoD employees who are interested in learning more from speakers of DAU's Flagship event of the summer. 

    Topic: Chris Yeh discusses The Happiness Hypothesis by Jonathan Haidt. 

    Event Description: You heard Chris Yeh talk at DAU’s Flagship event of the summer in 2023. Now’s your chance to continue the conversation about one of his professional development books. Come join us to learn how this book has impacted Chris' work and what he hopes you take from it.  Make some time on Fridays this summer to lean into Leadership and get inspired! 

    About the book:  The Happiness Hypothesis is a book about ten Great Ideas. Each chapter is an attempt to savor one idea that has been discovered by several of the world's civilizations—to question it in light of what we now know from scientific research, and to extract from it the lessons that still apply to our modern lives and illuminate the causes of human flourishing. Award-winning psychologist Jonathan Haidt shows how a deeper understanding of the world's philosophical wisdom and its enduring maxims—like "do unto others as you would have others do unto you," or "what doesn't kill you makes you stronger"—can enrich and transform our lives.

    Disclaimer:  DAU does not endorse any of the books included in our Book TALKx series. Instead, past and current Flagship Event speakers choose books based on their own personal preferences.  There is no requirement to buy or read these books to have a great conversation about them!
