There is more to life than searching for happiness, says Emily Esfahani Smith, TED favorite and author of the book The Power of Meaning. A positive psychology instructor and an editor at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution, Smith finds that pursuing meaning in life is ultimately more fulfilling than chasing happiness. Drawing on psychology, philosophy and literature, she points the way toward a richer life.

“The search for meaning just got a little easier, and a little more fun.” – Darrin M. McMahon, author of Happiness: A History
