What are readers saying?
“I have spent so so much money, time, and tears on so many courses over the past 25 years. Don’t get me wrong, I am sure they all planted seeds, but what this eBook does is like no author I have seen do before. Kyle’s dark night of the soul must have been legendary to dig this deep for this long. This is what you get just from this one book with all the hyperlinks to other book summaries he provides, come on!!” — Chris D.
“Your happiness eBook is a wonderful contribution to knowledge and human well-being. I pursued some of the links and felt uplifted and informed by videos and research. Your distinctions regarding happiness 101, 201, 301 are very helpful and intelligent. A hierarchy of sorts. Your eBook shows such diligence, dedication, and skills! I am very impressed and happy with what you have created. A gift!” — Dr. Susanne Cook-Greuter, creator of Ego Development Theory
“So so impressed with what you are doing and the pounding of power quotes … I am just chewing, spitting it out, and chewing it again. I have read a lot of the books that you have summarized, but the book you wrote is just so raw and well-lived … What a gift you are giving. May it selfishly rock my world. Much love.” — Chris D.
“A reminder of what it takes to be happy. The Hierarchy of Happiness is a great visual aid but make some time to read the whole piece. A lot of thought has gone into this … The infographic alone is a powerful reminder of what matters.” — Carl P.

The Hierarchy of Happiness eBook Introduction
“To be happy.”
This seems to be the go-to answer for one of humanity’s universal questions: “What is your goal in life?”
Consciously or not, directly or indirectly, in the short or the long term, whatever we do, whatever we hope, whatever we dream—somehow, is related to a deep, profound desire for well-being or happiness.— Matthieu Ricard, Biochemist turned Buddhist monk who is often described as world’s happiest person
In an attempt to answer this question, many humans throughout history have developed formulas for happiness. If we could just get a few things to align, then we would be happy.
But, does happiness really need a formula or to be a future goal?
Can you simply be happy now? Right now?
And, at a deeper level, should happiness even be the goal?
While researching other topics over the last few years, I’ve been tucking away a vast variety of perspectives on happiness. With well over 100 viewpoints in total, this eBook is a synthesis of my notes and thinking on happiness to date. It’s intended to expand your mind on what it truly means to be happy—so you can ultimately define happiness for yourself.
The 100+ thoughts are grouped into 12 themes (chapters) and a “hierarchy of happiness.”
The hierarchy of happiness is intended to function the same way as Maslow’s hierarchy of needs. You can flow back and forth between stages at various times in your life—between external factors for happiness, psychological factors, and spiritual factors.
Although the quest is universal, each of our paths are individual. There’s no single right answer for how to be happy. If something resonates with you—regardless of chapter or where I’ve placed it in the hierarchy—follow it.
Only you can live your truth.
The struggle is great, the task divine—to gain mastery, freedom, happiness, and tranquility.— Epictetus
