about the book

Offering more than psychological sound bites, Pursuing the Good Life shows you how to explore a new path by developing a plan that fulfills the need for love and belonging, empowerment, fun and enjoyment, freedom and independence, and higher states of good health and wellness. Britzman addresses how to:


  • Live well

  • Gain integrity with relationships

  • Find meaningful work

  • Experience a sense of purpose 


In this self-improvement book, Britzman provides an opportunity to self-evaluate and help you seize opportunities to make choices that are more life-enriching, leading to a better present and future. Pursuing the good life entails clarifying your hopes and dreams, finding an optimal direction that moves you closer to what you want, self-evaluating the consequences of your choices, and consistently developing a plan that is need-fulfilling.
