Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

Becoming A Happier Man: A Man's Guide To Living A Full And Meaningful Life describes in words and provocative images the ingredients needed to live a satisfying life. Dr. Ed Adams, a professional artist and psychologist, condenses his years of encouraging emotional health in men into a book that informs the heart, mind, and imagination about the key elements needed to become happier.

This book is for a man who wants to build and maintain joy in his life and for women who support and inspire men to live big and deeper lives.


All men want to live happy lives and Becoming a Happier Man is an invitation to do exactly that. With encouragement and awareness, men often break trough the unwritten and silly rules that culture imposes—and that we accept—to define ourselves as “real men. In reality, our ability to live meaningful and more satisfying lives increases the more we experience and express the best of our humanity. Becoming a Happier Man highlights essential perspectives of living a happier life that remain constant no matter how old we are, or whatever our background, education, career, race, sexual orientation, health, or bank account might seem to say about us. I’ve created this book to share what I’ve discovered from my own journey and from working with hundreds of men and facilitating over a thousand men’s groups over the past 30 years. Each page and image offers a meditation that with thoughtful reflection and positive intention will nurture a more savory taste of life. The words and images throughout this book describe what it takes for men to live “bigger lives” filled with meaning, connection, compassion and happiness. Consider the words and images as sparks able to ignite your own imagination and shed light upon your path toward Becoming a Happier Man.
