O's Big Book of Happiness
Oxmoor House. 336 pages
$29.95. BigBookofHappiness.com
In this new collection from the pages of O, more than 75 warm, wise, and insightful contributors write about beating the blues, dropping the weight, kissing fear goodbye, turning your dreams into reality, and putting your best face forward (with a little help from the right haircut).

World-class writers, artists, entrepreneurs, and political leaders—such as Alice Sebold, David Sedaris, Elizabeth Swados, Richard Branson, and Barack Obama—open a window on the life lessons that have galvanized them and set them on the road to joy. Plus, regular columnists offer advice: Financial expert Suze Orman defuses the minefields of money management, and life coach Martha Beck clues you in on how to handle your most intractable critic—you!
