(Ser feliz es fácil) BEING HAPPY IS EASY, IF YOU KNOW HOW TO  
Feb. 27, 2014
Author:  Clemente García Novella
Category:  International rights: Non-fiction
Description:  Can you teach yourself to be happy? Yes, if you know how to.

SER FELIZ ES FÁCIL offers a balanced, educated, direct and rational approach to being happy. Is happiness something we can learn? Clemente explains this in an easy and simple way, and in four clear steps: our physical base, the material and emotional things that surround us, what to STOP doing and, finally, what to START doing. It explores emotions such as guilt, victimism, fear, anger, anxiety or sadness, and talks about how we can influence our wellbeing, and how we can master and control our own wellbeing.

Rights available:  All languages except Spanish, Portuguese (Portugal) and Catalan.
Rights already sold:  Spanish (Ediciones B), Portuguese (Objetiva) and Catalan (Bromera)
