Most popular class in Harvard

A class on positive psychology, which basically is pop psychology. Like free therapy, twice a week, says one undergrad. Shahar, the teacher of this class, decided not to continue on the tenure track because publishing doesn’t make him happy. Kind of like when a guy likes a girl but can’t attract her, and then decides she is too snobby for him.

Some memorable quotes,
From a student:
“The work is about personal transformation and not a quantity of reading. It’s probably the one class that I feel I’m acheiving growth.”

From Shahar:
“What I’m calling for is nothing less than a happiness revolution.”
