Life has unbounded possibilities and jubilation comes in many sizes and guises. Happiness is all about attitude, attitude of finding joy in small things and small wonders of nature. Some of the biggest sources of happiness like watching the sea, falling in love, holding a baby in your arms and so on come absolutely free.

There is a huge difference between having an interest and having a commitment. If you are committed to bring or add to the joy in your life, this book is for you.

As recession and economic turmoil all over the world is forcing us to reflect, we need to rethink whether we are giving too much importance to money and material as primary sources of joy. The 7 Joys of Life is a glimpse into the holistic world of 'Joy' and discusses seven major sources of joy. The eighth joy or the joy of giving has been discussed in epilogue because only after creating joy in our lives, we can spread the joy around. This book is supposed to be a bundle of joy but discusses in brief the barriers to joy besides the sources of job.

This work has been enriched by the contributions of 19 authors from different walks of life, residing in 6 countries across 4 continents.
