Sonja Lyubomirsky is a professor in the Department of Psychology at the University of California, Riverside and author of The How of Happiness, a book of strategies backed by scientific research that can be used to increase happiness.

The premise of The How of Happiness is (1) that happiness is worth striving for, and (2) that 50 percent of a given human’s happiness level is genetically determined (based on twin studies),10 percent is affected by life circumstances and situation, and a remaining 40 percent of happiness is subject to self control
