Everyone wants to be happy! Larry's books are full of helpful advice. For example, "Happiness comes, happiness goes: let it come, let it go!" This refers to the idea that suffering is unavoidable in life. We all experience losses and threats of various kinds, but there are healthy ways and less healthy ways of dealing with this. Larry shows how to minimize the pain and distress, and... better... how to grow as a person through the experience. In fact, he says, we can only grow through the experience of adversity.
