We all want to be happy but what is happiness? Haim Shapira navigates the terrain of happiness, exploring and contemplating an eclectic range of theories and insights into the conflicts we face on our journey to creating our own happiness. What is your happiest moment? How can you know it? Do we waste time or does time waste us? Are questions about meaning truly meaningful? What’s really important? Drawing on literary and philosophical sources ranging from Alice in Wonderland and The Little Prince to Leo Tolstoy, King Solomon and Friedrich Nietzsche, Haim Shapira invites us to challenge our perspectives on happiness and provides us with alternative ways to appreciate what is important. As Haim concludes it is in the spaces between the possible paths that we might take that we are able to find a place of grace, and where the things that matter to us will light our way. The choice is ours.

The 99 will challenge you to think about the state of our world ­– socially, economically and environmentally and in fact will challenge you to rethink about so many aspects that you currently perceive as normal. In fact, it demonstrates that these three key factors are intimately connected. But much more than that. The 99 encourages readers to envision a better world and, through their own actions, help to bring about much-needed change. - Sharon Moore (editor of 99) The book presents one man’s philosophy on life, while at the same time exposing and analysing the dysfunction that has developed at many levels in modern western society. At its heart is a key understanding: that the way we live is based on a misguided belief that the earth has infinite resources there for our taking. Central to the book’s message is its analysis of our economic-growth-at-any-cost way of life and the dominance of mega-corporations, to the detriment of our health and well-being and that of the very earth, air and water we depend on. The insights the author gained while growing up in Greece enable him to clearly see the contrasts between that simpler way of life, not all that long ago, and the unnecessary complexity of today’s modern lifestyle, especially in cities, where most of us live. By touring through many aspects of our society, culture and governance the book encourages readers to think about the connections between our actions and decisions, their consequences, and the wider economic and governmental context in which our lives are embedded. After fourteen chapters of analysis and passionate argument, the penultimate chapter presents 99 choices, or perhaps challenges. In three sections – visionary, personal level solutions, and systemic rule-based changes – the 99 points aim to embolden people to take control of their lives, to be part of the change that must happen, for the future of our species and our planet.

End of October 1961, the so-called “Palace uprising” taking place at Ferrari leads to the dismissal by the Commendatore of eight elements that have formed the core of the team of Maranello, capable of contributing in a decisive way to the just conquered Formula One World Title in the same season. These include the designer Carlo Chiti and team manager Romolo Tavoni, who, along with most of the defectors, decide, thanks to the contribution of three wealthy businessmen of the time, Giorgio Billi, Giovanni Volpi di Misurata and Jaime Ortiz Patino, to create a new all-Italian team, the Automobili Turismo Sport Serenissima (ATS): 11 February 1962, the headquarters are fixed in via Altabella 17 in the Centre of Bologna. A few months later, in the presence of World Champion Juan Manuel Fangio, the first stone of a futuristic factory in Pontecchio Marconi in placed where will be built not only the car of Formula One, but also a road car Gran Turismo. This initiative gives rise to huge interest, for the quality and the characteristics of those who made up the team, and because many see in ATS the true antagonist of the “Prancing Horse”. In December the car Type 100 is presented in great style in the luxury emilian hotel, the Baglioni, whit yet another shot at effect: the pair of drivers hired, one who raced for Ferrari in the Championship just ended, the former world champion Phil Hill and Giancarlo Baghetti, the Italian rising star. This is the history of the Bologna racing team, through the words of veterans, documents of the time, and the numerous vintage photos, of his brief adventure in the 1963 season in Formula One and the ATS 2500, innovative car unveiled at the Geneva Motor Show that is able to take part in the 1964 Targa Florio.
