The Way to Happiness is a 1980 booklet written by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard listing 21 moral precepts, and distributed by The Way to Happiness Foundation International, a Scientology-related non-profit organization founded in 1984.
Translated into 70 languages (a Guinness world record in authorship for Hubbard), the booklet is used as part of Scientology's Criminon rehabilitation program and is promoted by Scientology celebrities. The unsolicited distribution of personalised copies of the booklet to schools and mayors' offices has caused controversy, and while it is promoted as secular in nature, critics have stated that it includes ideas that are specific to Scientology, and is used as a recruiting tool.

Famous quotes containing the word happiness:
“Your children dont have equal talents now and they wont have equal opportunities later in life. You may be able to divide resources equally in childhood, but your best efforts wont succeed in shielding them from personal or physical crises. . . . Your heart will be broken a thousand times if you really expect to equalize your childrens happiness by striving to love them equally.”
—Marianne E. Neifert (20th century)
