Product Details


“This book presses pause on the dazzling contingent brightness of the present, and allows the reflections of the evening to gather and turn towards a new day.”
Manchester Review of Books

Praise for The Happiness Industry by William Davies

“Deeply researched and pithily argued, Davies’s work is a welcome corrective to the glut of semi-scientific happiness books that have become so popular in business and management circles, and which rarely, if ever, acknowledge the larger ideological goals of workplace well-being.”
– New York Magazine

“As Davies implies in this readable, disturbing book, being depressed by the human condition will no longer be socially acceptable, or even an option. The state or big business will soon see to it!”
– Independent

“Rich, lucid and arresting.”
– John Gray, Literary Review

“A fascinating book.”
– Philip Mirowski, author of Never Let a Serious Crisis Go to Waste (in praise of The Limits of Neoliberalism)

“An eye-opening, head-spinning, and mind-expanding book.”
– Ha-Joon Chang, University of Cambridge, author of 23 Things They Don’t Tell You about Capitalism

“A brilliant, and sometimes eerie, dissection of our times.”
– Vice

“Skillfully written intellectual entertainment—prime fodder for postmodern psychologists and New-Age thinkers alike.”
– Kirkus
