Happiness today is not just a possibility or an option but a requirement and a duty. To fail to be happy is to fail utterly. Happiness has become a religion--one whose smiley-faced god looks down in rebuke upon everyone who hasn't yet attained the blessed state of perpetual euphoria. How has a liberating principle of the Enlightenment--the right to pursue happiness--become the unavoidable and burdensome responsibility to be happy? How did we become unhappy about not being happy--and what might we do to escape this predicament? In Perpetual Euphoria, Pascal Bruckner takes up these questions with all his unconventional wit, force, and brilliance, arguing that we might be happier if we simply abandoned our mad pursuit of happiness. Gripped by the twin illusions that we are responsible for being happy or unhappy and that happiness can be produced by effort, many of us are now martyring ourselves--sacrificing our time, fortunes, health, and peace of mind--in the hope of entering an earthly paradise. Much better, Bruckner argues, would be to accept that happiness is an unbidden and fragile gift that arrives only by grace and luck. A stimulating and entertaining meditation on the unhappiness at the heart of the modern cult of happiness, Perpetual Euphoria is a book for everyone who has ever bristled at the command to "be happy."

Yahwehche is a prophet and the brother of Jesus Christ, who comes to poverty-stricken Haiti with a message of peace and redemption for all mankind. He quickly gathers a devoted following as he ministers to the poor and heals the sick. But just as rapidly, he attracts the censorious attention of the ruthlessly faithless, who persecute and torture Yahwehche when they cannot use his gifts to fuel their own ambitions. Yet Yahwehche, the celestially-radiant being who can withstand every degradation imposed by man, is unable to resist the charms of the seductive prostitute Maria Magdalena. After enduring torture at the hands of the powerful in both Haiti and the Dominican Republic and surviving a howling hurricane, he goes with Maria to a secluded village for physical recuperation and spiritual renewal. But instead, he is intoxicated by their carnal relationship, which causes him to forget the promises made to his disciples and abandon his heavenly mission. Euphoria is a mesmerizing contemporary parable written in luminous prose that depicts a would-be savior's fall from grace. Author Luis Reynoso evokes the inland setting of his story in a way that captures the cultural diversity, political cynicism and hopeful spirit of the people.

By practicing Relational Management, as described in this book, organizations of all types will become "small", entrepreneurial, flexible and creative. They will tap their abundant social energy to build substantial economic and social value. And, they may even experience "Business Euphoria".
