Happiness Is a Smokin' Gun is a practical guide for everyday life. We all want more happiness, but often go about getting it in the wrong way. The first half of the book is about tackling our current states of thought. This includes better problem-solving techniques, identifying and dealing with needless worrying, and finding better ways to deal with negative emotions. Through various examples and stories, readers will get a glimpse of how to better their thinking, which in turn will help change their current state of consciousness. The second part focuses on the things that make us happy. This comes down to: Passion/Success, Love, Solitude/Meditation, Sublimity, and knowledge. Each of these chapters comprises the reasons why we strive for these states of consciousness. As human beings, we are constantly working toward one of these avenues, as they make us feel alive and in love with the world. In the end, we see that it is only our current state of thought that stands in the way of our own happiness. It is our failure to let go of the past as well as our fears of the future that keeps us from embracing the happiness that is in the here and now.

"Happiness Is Not My Companion" The Life of General G. K. Warren David M. Jordan The valorous but troubled career of the Civil War general, best known for his quick action to defend Little Round Top and avert a Union defeat at Gettysburg. Gouverneur K. Warren, a brilliant student at West Point and a topographical engineer, earned early acclaim for his explorations of the Nebraska Territory and the Black Hills in the 1850s. With the start of the Civil War, Warren moved from teacher at West Point to lieutenant colonel of a New York regiment and was soon a rising star in the Army of the Potomac. His fast action at Little Round Top, bringing Federal troops to an undefended position before the Confederates could seize it, helped to save the Battle of Gettysburg. For his service at Bristoe Station and Mine Run, he was awarded command of the Fifth Corps for the 1864 Virginia campaign. Warren’s peculiarities of temperament and personality put a cloud over his service at the Wilderness and Spotsylvania and cost him the confidence of his superiors, Grant and Meade. He was summarily relieved of his command by Philip Sheridan after winning the Battle of Five Forks, just eight days before Appomattox. Warren continued as an engineer of distinction in the Army after the war, but he was determined to clear his name before a board of inquiry, which conducted an exhaustive investigation into the battle, Warren’s conduct, and Sheridan’s arbitrary action. However, the findings of the court vindicating Warren were not made public until shortly after his death. For this major biography of Gouverneur Warren, David M. Jordan utilizes Warren’s own voluminous collection of letters, papers, orders, and other items saved by his family, as well as the letters and writings of such contemporaries as his aide and brother-in-law Washington Roebling, Andrew Humphreys, Winfield Hancock, George Gordon Meade, and Ulysses S. Grant. Jordan presents a vivid account of the life and times of a complex military figure. David M. Jordan, a native of Philadelphia, a graduate of Princeton University, and a practicing attorney, has previously published biographies of New York political boss Roscoe Conkling, Union general Winfield Scott Hancock, and pitcher Hal Newhouser, as well as a history of the Philadelphia Athletics.
