In 2001 Mo Gawdat realized that despite his incredible success, he was desperately unhappy. A lifelong learner, he attacked the problem as an engineer would: examining all the provable facts and scrupulously applying logic. Eventually, his countless hours of research and science proved successful, and he discovered the equation for permanent happiness. Thirteen years later, Mo's algorithm would be put to the ultimate test. After the sudden death of his son, Ali, Mo and his family turned to his equation--and it saved them from despair. In dealing with horrible loss, Mo found his mission: he would share his equation with the world and help as many people as possible become happier. Mo questions some of the most fundamental aspects of our existence, shares the underlying reasons for suffering, and plots out a step-by-step process for achieving lifelong happiness and enduring contentment. He shows us how to view life through a clear lens, teaching how to dispel the illusions that cloud our thinking, overcome the brain's blind spots, and embrace five ultimate truths.

I found this a much better book on how to be happy: Being Happy: Part 1 by David Tuffley. It doesn’t rely on an unconvincing argument for Intelligent Design.

Spoiler alert: Ends up being religious based nonsense. There are many far better books available on the philosophy of happiness.
