"Wise counsel from one of America's most respected psychiatrists." -Irvin Yalom, author of Staring at the Sun and When Nietzsche Wept, Emeritus Professor of Psychiatry, Stanford University For many, getting in touch with that elusive thing called "happiness" is rarely simple—and achieving any kind of lasting happiness can feel like an insur­mountable challenge. Perhaps what we need is an education on the subject . . . A Course in Happiness. In this book, Mardi Horowitz draws on more than forty years of experience as a practicing psychiatrist to provide readers with just this. According to Dr. Horowitz, happiness is essentially a by-product of self-knowledge; in order to be happy, we need to understand who we truly are. In A Course in Happiness, he details a deeply rewarding course in mastering the three levels of self-understanding that underlie happiness: Integration: the ability to assemble all the pieces of one's self into a whole, complete, understood, and respected "me." Intimacy: the capacity to remain closely connected to the warmth of relationships with family, friends, colleagues, and others in a social community. Integrity: the insight to know which of one's values are most dear and which are lower in priority—and then to be true to what is the most important, even in the midst of conflict. A Course in Happiness offers a road map for achieving genuine and lasting contentment.

This book will teach you how to use Swift to apply functional programming techniques to your iOS or OS X projects. These techniques complement object-oriented programming that most Objective-C developers will already be familiar with, providing you with a valuable new tool in your developer's toolbox. We will start by taking a look at Swift's new language features, such as higher-order functions, generics, optionals, enumerations, and pattern matching. Mastering these new features will enable you to write functional code effectively. After that, we will provide several examples of how to use functional programming patterns to solve real-world problems. These examples include a compositional and type-safe API around Core Image, a library for diagrams built on Core Graphics, and a small spreadsheet application built from scratch.
