Summary

From the New York Times best-selling psychologist who taught us how to be happier, an intimate keepsake collection of wisdoms he learned from a most unlikely source.  

Even a New York Times best-selling happiness expert can need advice! 

In his trailblazing Harvard courses, internationally best-selling books, and lectures and videos, positive psychologist Tal Ben-Shahar has shared his essential, scientifically backed tools for finding fulfillment the world over. But even the happiness expert needs a boost from time to time! 

Tal found his not in a guru or fellow psychologist but rather in his longtime neighbourhood barber, Avi - a man with a gift for making his clients look and feel great, with wisdom beyond his years.  

Tal's visits to Avi soon grew into a friendship deeper than most. Between snips, the two men talked about everything from family and starting a business to the meaning of life and the power of music. Two years of their revelatory barbershop talk have been distilled into these gems of inspiration - perfect to give, receive, and share, even between haircuts.

Critic reviews

"A charming read to remind you that wisdom about happiness is often right around the corner." (Adam Grant, New York Times best-selling author of Give and Take and Originals, and coauthor of Option B with Sheryl Sandberg)   

"When a happiness expert like Ben-Shahar turns to someone else for advice, you know the advice has got to be good. Short Cuts to Happiness offers accessible, universal wisdom that puts a life of meaning and fulfilment within reach and sets a very high bar for my next trip to the barber!" (Colin Beavan, author of No Impact Man and How to Be Alive)
