Their extensive body of work speaks to individuals from all lifestyles and professions.”

“Errol and Marjorie have opened a discussion on a subject we all think about from time to time but resist serious contemplation. As society continues to repackage and sell a universal notion of happiness with success, we drift farther away from truths. The Happiness Index is a catalyst for pause as it brings us back to universal truths and forces us to think about the concrete elements around us that actually bring happiness. It is a pleasant, easy to read, intellectual work, with anecdotes, cadence and rhythm all combined to bring the reader joy.”

― Caline Derota Carter, Author
