Mo Gawdat befasst sich schon seit Jahren mit dem Thema Glück und was dieses ausmacht. Als Entwickler und Leiter in Googles Denkfabrik, Google[X], geht er das Problem eben wie ein solcher an: Er prüft alle prüfbaren Fakten und sucht die Logik dahinter. Nach unzähligen Stunden, Büchern und Interviews konnte er tatsächlich eine Gleichung für dauerhaftes Glücklichsein aufstellen. 13 Jahre später kam der härteste Test für Gawdats Glücksalgorithmus – sein Sohn starb völlig unerwartet mit 21 Jahren. Doch die Gleichung ging auf und verhinderte, dass er und seine Familie in völlige Verzweiflung abglitten. Nach der weitestmöglichen Verarbeitung dieses Verlustes fand Mo Gawdat seine Mission: die Verbreitung der Formel, die ihm geholfen hat, sein Leid zu überwinden. Seine Formel hilft heute jedem, wieder klarer zu sehen, die richtigen Prioritäten zu setzen und so zufriedener in die Zukunft zu starten – ob privat oder im Beruf. Die Formel für Glück beantwortet somit eine der häufigsten Fragen: Was kann ich tun, um glücklicher zu werden?
