Happiness lies within us—but we could all use a little help finding it. In a refreshing new voice, The Fool's Guide to Actual Happiness shows us how to feel and be better—without having to be perfect.

Let's face it: we all have a motivating drive to become "better." What we have and who we are never seem to be good enough. This feeling that something is wrong or needs to be fixed causes us to continuously run around, chasing after what we feel will finally fulfill us. But what if these very conditions that we are constantly trying to escape from could be used as a way to awaken ourselves—to connect with the peace already within us?

A Fool’s Guide to Actual Happiness offers a realistic roadmap for working towards inner peace without needing to be someone you’re not. With humor and refreshing simplicity, Van Buren shows how everything life throws at you, good or bad, can be used as a means to cultivate compassion, wisdom, and loving-kindness. This book allows readers to explore who they are—warts and all—and gives them tools to love and accept what they find.

Reviews:

“This dude really gets it! The Buddha believed in happiness for everyone, and Van Buren gets you there in this concise and simple book that’s just loaded with wisdom.”
— Gerry Stribling, author of Buddhism for Dudes

“For anyone who wants to explore Buddhist meditation, this book opens the door. Mark makes the practice accessible, clear, and easy to incorporate in the rest of your life.”


— Lodro Rinzler, author of The Buddha Walks into a Bar
