" a passionate, provocative book"

...many surprising insights in a book so littered with them that it sometimes makes you gasp... Happy Ever After is a passionate, provocative book. It isn’t just a self-help book. It is a manifesto for a better society, but not the one of mainstream political dreams. Dolan wants a world where people don’t chase rainbows, but what they can realistically get. He wants people to boast about their good deeds, because that will encourage other people to do more. He wants people to judge less and have more fun. It’s a pragmatic view of life, and quite a utilitarian one.
