In 2008, based on the movie Living Luminaries, was published the book “Living Luminaries: On the Serious Business of Happiness”. Here is a little information about this book:
“From the makers of the feature film The Serious Business Of Happiness, the Living Luminaries is a distillation of the insight, wisdom, and personal experience of 14 extraordinary men and women who have spent years of study and contemplation in order to solve what might be described as the riddle of riddles, the one about happiness. Living Luminaries is an introduction to these unique individuals and to their advise about how to be happy.
The book will roughly follow the form of the movies and will address the central problem of being alive which is how to optimize our lives so as to get the most out of our moments.
This is also called happiness and, of course, it is not as straight forward as it would seem. Most human beings are demonstrably not so good at the art of being happy. The purpose of this book, and the related feature documentaries is to lay out a map of the territory of Happiness. Then each individual will have to plot his and her own unique way through the terrain but perhaps they will be comforted to learn through the reading of this little book or the watching of the movies that there are indeed guides available for the journey.”
Some of the quotes from Living Luminaries: On the Serious Business of Happiness documentary:

- Your mind is like a wild horse that takes you wherever it wants to take you.” – Don Miguel Ruiz.
- Tend to your garden every day because if there is a bad seed that gets put into your mind and you believe it, you believe that lie, that lie will begin to grow. As soon as you are able to stop that weed and not feed it, those lies will diminish and go away.” – Don Miguel’s son.
