Publication day


I'm extremely happy – in a suitably understated way, of course – that today marks the official publication of my book The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking. The video above is a splendid little animation about it, made by the talented people at Scriberia; you can also read the extract published in the Guardian at the weekend, 'Happiness is a Glass Half Empty', and/or come to one of my events. Or even, you know, buy the book...

Oliver Burkeman I'm a writer for The Guardian based in Brooklyn, New York. My new book The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking explores the upsides of negativity, uncertainty, failure and imperfection. Each week in This Column Will Change Your Life I write about social psychology, self-help culture, productivity and the science of happiness, and make unprovoked attacks on The Secret.

I also blog about things for Guardian US and write a monthly column for Psychologies magazine. Hello.
