I love Oliver Burkeman's This Column Will Change Your Life slot in The Guardian's Saturday magazine - it's a fresh, original, practical and elegantly argued take on social psychology, self-help culture, productivity and the science of happiness that aims to debunk the mumbo-jumbo rather than perpetuate it. This book is a collection of some of those codology-free columns. The upside-down subtitle says it all: "How to Become Slightly Happier and Get a Bit More Done." No rash claims, then.
