Gretchen Rubin graduated from Yale Law School and was clerking for a Supreme Court Justice when she realized that she wanted to be a writer. She has written bestsellers about JFK, Winston Churchill and one entitled “Power Money Fame Sex.” But Rubin’s most acclaimed book is called The Happiness Project with the subtitle “Or Why I Spent a Year Trying to Sing in the Morning, Clean My Closets, Fight Right, Read Aristotle, and Generally Have More Fun”. In this book and her blog of the same name, Rubin details her year spent chasing the meaning of happiness and discusses the laws of happiness and what she calls “Four Splendid Truths.” For more details on Gretchen Rubin and The Happiness Project check out the UC San Diego Extension blog  and UCTV clips of her talk at last year’s Atlantic Meets Pacific.
