The Happiness Perspective explores happiness as it relates to adversity. During his physical therapy sessions, Farris Fakhoury, DPT noticed certain characteristics and common threads that his patients exhibited to help them in their recovery. He has wanted to share these lessons, hoping to help others going through life-changing injuries realize that happiness awaits - if they know where to look.

In his book, Fakhoury shares:

  • Personal stories (including his own)

  • Statistics about overcoming devastating injuries

  • Ways to unlock happiness, even in the darkest of times

  • And more...

Combining his four step guide with the three lessons his patients have taught him throughout his career, Fakhoury’s book is a unique road map to help support anyone looking to change their lives for the better. The Happiness Perspective is a ray of light in today’s too often gloomy reality.
