Australian-born writer Andrew Matthews has an international reputation for his books which examine subjects including: prosperity, enjoying work, getting along with other people and finding peace of mind. Mathews has argued that one of the keys to wealth creation is creativity.

And he quotes the great American president Thomas Jefferson, who once said: 'The glow of one warm thought is to me worth more than money'. Mathews will host a talk at the Central Library in Causeway Bay. The talk, 'How Happy People Think, What Successful People Do', will be held on Saturday at 3pm at the Hong Kong Central Library's Lecture Theatre. It is organised by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department.
