For anyone exhausted or disillusioned by the perpetual pursuit of personal happiness, here is the antidote: a book about the pursuit of meaning, a better route to a fulfilling life. Drawing on the latest cognitive science research, as well as insights from literature and philosophy and her own prodigious reporting, Smith shows that by developing a "meaning mindset," we can all achieve a deeper satisfaction. Smith spells out the four pillars of the meaning mindset: cultivating connections to others, working toward our life's purpose, telling stories about our place in the world, and finding transcendence.

A highly recommended read about how to add, look for, or create meaning in your own life. The examples range from the spiritual all the way to the scientific. Although officially a "self-help" book, this can also be read as a work of modern philosophy on how to live the good life.
