This is more or less a composite of Pollock's popular Sunday night radio talks. He uses the Carnegie technique to determine what happiness is and how to find it. He takes a homely truth and develops it with anecdotes and personal experience of famous people. Friendship, the home, love, kindness, work, success, culture, nature, good health, the values of liberty and independence. Pretty sappy stuff, with a streak of Pollyanna in the make-up.
