New Book Identifies the Critical Elements Needed to be Fabulously Happy

Author aims to make every generation happier than the last

MERRITT ISLAND, FLA. JULY 04, 2022 – In “An Engineer’s Guide to Happiness,” author and engineer David Andrew shares the critical elements to achieving happiness and an amazing life. Andrew applied engineering principles to “happiness.” He thought if he was going to try to be an expert at something isn’t striving to be an expert in “happiness” a laudable goal? Andrew provides an in-depth analysis of each critical element and a roadmap that encourages readers to further examine their own lives.

Andrew has been an inspirational speaker for over 15 years and applied engineering principles to the concept of happiness. Building a bridge is complex, but Andrew teaches that “happiness” is much more complex than a bridge. When building a bridge, an engineer will model and test the bridge to find its weakest links. Then an engineer with eliminate those weakest links to make the bridge that much stronger. What are the weakest links to happiness?

Rather than approaching the topic of happiness subjectively, Andrew approaches it objectively. The book acts as a comprehensive guide including many examples and analogies. Andrew provides an in-depth analysis of each element that is critical to our happiness and a roadmap that encourages readers to apply specific techniques in their own lives.

Instead of spending time trying to figure out what the root of unhappiness is, Andrew encourages readers to be forward-focused. He says that “life is in front of us, not behind us.”

“I feel incredibly fortunate and happy with my life,” Andrew said “not because I have had an easy life. That is far from the truth. As an engineer, I have searched for deeper knowledge to define happiness, and that is how I have succeeded in that aspect of my life.”
