Review of Diener's et al's Well-being for public policy by Paul F. Ross

Diener, Lucas, Schimmack, and Helliwell make a stout and effective plea for indices of subjective well-being that inform leaders and thinkers about societal and psychological outcomes well beyond the social indicators in common use such as per capita GDP, suicide rate, divorce rate, years of schooling, unemployment rate, infant mortality, crime rate, and the like. The authors wish to be heard in government and business, places where the likely effective advocates for gathering and using indicators of well-being may be found. The book is an exciting read and one this reader hopes changes guidelines for public policymaking. But the book also is strangely deficient in communication of the action-compelling kind with its audiences about what is already known, careful reporting about its methodologies, and awareness
