What brings us real and lasting happiness?
Although just about every marketing firm, self-help guru, and man on the street has an answer, very few, if any, understand true happiness. It doesn’t come from power, pleasure, popularity, or possessions. So what is happiness and how do we find it?
In How to Be Happy, author Matt Fradd relies on the help of St. Thomas Aquinas to show what will—and what won’t—bring us happiness in this life.
By making the thought of Aquinas utterly accessible for today, How to Be Happy is an invaluable guide to a good life.
Matt Fradd is the creator and host of the Pints With Aquinas podcast. He is the author and coauthor of several books including, Does God Exist? A Socratic Dialogue on the Five Ways of Thomas Aquinas. Matt earned his undergraduate and graduate degrees in philosophy from Holy Apostles College & Seminary which also awarded him an honorary doctorate. He lives in Steubenville, Ohio, with his wife Cameron and their four kids.

“People, in general, no longer see the path of faith and virtue as the path to happiness. People are also more miserable than ever. Matt Fradd brings the wisdom of Aquinas to life like no one else. And in a world losing its way in the quest for fulfillment, we need that wisdom now, more than ever. This is a must read, and a must share.”
