How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life : An Unexpected Guide to Human Nature and Happiness Paperback



"A fun, fascinating, and original book that will challenge you to become a better version of yourself." (Daniel H.

Pink, author of Drive). What does it take to be truly happy? Should we pursue fame and fortune or the respect of our friends and family?

How can we make the world a better place? Two hundred and fifty years ago, Adam Smith addressed these fundamental questions in his life-long project, The Theory of Modern Sentiments.

Dwarfed by the success of Smith's masterpiece The Wealth of Nations, The Theory of Modern Sentiments has been virtually forgotten.

But when Russ Roberts finally picked up the epic tome, he realized he'd stumbled upon the greatest self-help book that almost no one has read.

In How Adam Smith Can Change Your Life, Roberts reinvigorates the neglected classic to unearth a treasure trove of timeless, practical wisdom that cuts to the core of what it means to be human.

It will challenge you to think about the way you treat others, the decisions you make in pursuit of happiness, and your place in the world.
