As another reviewer stated, the secondary title is a bit misleading (to put it mildly). You probably won't find your way to happiness watching this (though I'd be happy for anyone who actually does). This is a collection of snippets about how Yalom sees life and what he has to say about our journey/stay on this planet.
It's actually fundamental and anyone who thought about things might have come up with most of his thoughts anyway. But it's a nice touch and might be a good way to learn about Yalom (someone I hadn't heard of before myself). To get real help though, you should be visiting an expert, someone who can guide you personally to your happiness or at least help you cope with things/issues/problems. It's a short documentary and it might be worth a watch ... it's up to you
