During the presentation, Dr. Rekha Shetty said that with this book, her aim is to create an epidemic of happiness in the corporate world. She initially wrote this book 7 years ago as a management guide but later changed the format to a story. Her next book is expected to come out in January 2012.

About ‘The Happiness Quotient’ - The Indian tradition shows us that positive, radiant happiness is our birthright, and the programme outlined in this book illustrates how to achieve it for ourselves. The Happiness quotient (HQ) is a concept that measures approximately, the measure of happiness each person has achieved in his life. This book provides a blueprint to increase one’s HQ. It starts by describing the creation of a positive mindspace, one that nurtures the positive emotions that increase happiness. It also discusses the impact of negative fields and how to avoid them.

Anti-happiness traps, too, find a special place in this book. They require special identification as they can be very misleading, like a comfortable golden cage full of fruit, must seem to a free-flying parrot. Whatever the external circumstances may be, the individual is responsible for his inner state. Events are not under our control, but our perceptions and reactions to them are.

This book is an investment in Life’s greatest prize – Happiness.
