The End of Happiness – A Book Review
“The End of Happiness” by Michael Roizen is a story that could have been written about any number of topics and themes. The author, though, chooses to focus on the theme of the journey to happiness. The book title refers to a quote by Albert Einstein, “I always wanted to live in a world where people are happy and free.” In The End of Happiness, Roizen explores various ways to interpret this quote to bring a different view to life.
The theme of the book as presented is that the journey to happiness is simply a journey, not a destination. It is a continual process that many individuals go through throughout their lives. No matter how happy or sad someone may be, they continue to grow and develop. It’s not as if the journey to the end of happiness is without obstacles or struggles.
