View Video

Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School Professor Arthur C. Brooks and Oprah Winfrey share in a conversation with Jeffrey Goldberg, editor-in-chief of the Atlantic, about the pair’s new book, Build the Life You Want: The Art and Science of Getting Happier. Harvard University President Claudine Gay and ProfessorTsedal Neeley, senior associate dean for faculty development and research, also make remarks. How can we mobilize our lives toward greater happiness? How do we translate ideas about happiness into action? How do we take control of our present and future? Winfrey and Brooks have each spent decades tackling big topics like how to find happiness and achieve self-actualization. In their fascinating collaborative book, they lay out their hard-earned wisdom in concrete steps with practical solutions for how to strengthen the four crucial pillars of happiness: family, friendship, work, and faith. In this intimate, powerful conversation, you’ll hear them discuss what they’ve learned about happiness, how to build your blueprint for a more fulfilling future, the adventure that awaits you in the process, personal stories that didn’t make it into the book, and more.
