"We now have a new study of an altogether superior kind by a father and son team of philosopher and economist... To make progress the authors break up happiness into three components: welfare, contentment and dignity... The most striking of the Kenny findings is how little welfare has to do with income either absolute or relative."(Samuel Brittan Financial Times)
"This is very much a worthwhile book. It usefully synthesizes literatures and arguments from philosophy and economics, and shows how they bear on moral and political deliberations about happiness."(Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews)
"It is a great intellectual pleasure... witty, profound but well understandable, the reader feels the moral and political commitment of the authors."(Helge Peukert Journal of Economic Issues, vol. 41, no. 3)
"While clearly written, it is pretty advanced in the technicality of its arguments. I would recommend it for a third-year course on ethics or practical theology... [L]eaves one with much to think about."(Revd Dr Sedgwick Church Times)
"A unique and valuable book on the meaning of happiness that, while interdisciplinary, preserves the strengths of the distinct disciplinary approaches it includes... The Kennys have done an admirable job of writing a plausible, well-argued, and accessible volume that should be of benefit to both academic and non-academic audiences."(Journal of Law, Philosophy and Culture)
