As a result of the research done by Baucells and co-author Rakesh Sarin, it has been demonstrated that through planning and acting on the 6 laws of happiness, as well as making a choice to live a happy life, happiness becomes a controllable possibility rather than an unattainable goal in our consumer-oriented society. The authors are both engineers, and put their information into understandable action steps. They are from different cultures, on opposite sides of the world, and have discovered their way of “engineering happiness” works in a variety of cultures.
