Editorial Reviews

Review

...this volume marks an important step...

(Neil Levy Metapsychology)

This outstanding collection provides diverse insights into the nature of well-being and the workings of culture, and examines the complex ways in which they may relate to one another. Written by a distinguished group of researchers, this book should be of great interest to psychologists, sociologists, anthropologists, political scientists, and anyone interested in how people conceive of 'the good life.'

(Ziva Kunda, Department of Psychology, University of Waterloo)

How does culture shape what it is like to be inside our heads? How can psychologists hope to measure and compare the way people feel about themselves in different cultures? This book summarizes cutting-edge research on these and other fascinating questions about culture and subjective well-being. I am sure that this book will assume a prominent place on my shelf and that I will refer to it often.

(Timothy D. Wilson, Department of Psychology, University of Virginia)

Diener and Suh have compiled an extraordinary handbook on understanding subjective well-being across cultures. This volume will become an invaluable resource for researchers in this field and is likely to shape the direction of the field in the future.

(Susan K. Nolen-Hoeksema, Department of Psychology, University of Michigan)

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This was sold to me as a Kindle. Yet I cannot load it on my Kindle 2 and I cannot see it on my PC account. It was only delivered to my smart phone but it is almost impossible to read and there are no tools available to adjust the very tiny font or even to move to different locations. With all of your experience producing Kindle books why was this one so terrible. Since I need this book in my research I hve purchased a hard copy. Please refund my Kindle copy -- it is worthless.

Format: Hardcover
Ý think subjective well-being is the most important problem of individuals and societies. Nowadays, people are more expressive for shaping their own life. Besides these improvement, cultures are interacting themselves and the definete features of some cultures become the common elements of whole societies. For example outonomy in individualistic societies is found as a important value of social life by collectivistic societies. Similarly the social support and relatedness in collectivistic societies are being given high priorities by individualistic societies. As a result Ý found this book is very valuable for academicians and people.
