    Turning decades of self-help advice on its head, Oliver Burkeman explains why positive thinking serves only to make us more miserable, and why 'getting motivated' can exacerbate procrastination. Comparing the personal philosophies of dozens of 'happy' people—philosophers, experimental psychologists, Buddhists, New Age dreamers & hard-headed business consultants—Burkeman uncovers some common ground. They all believe that there is an alternative 'negative path' to happiness & success that involves coming face-to-face with, even embracing, precisely the things we spend our lives trying to avoid. Burkeman concludes that in our personal lives and the world at large, it's our constant efforts to eliminate the negative—uncertainty, unhappiness, failure—that cause us to feel so anxious, insecure and unhappy.
