Editorial Reviews

Review


"As a happiness researcher, I frequently get calls from major media outlets trying to cobble together stories about making travel more emotionally satisfying. Until now, I haven't been able to point them to a source that pulls together the diverse strands of research that are relevant to this topic. Jaime Kurtz is poised to provide just what everyone's been looking for. And with her research expertise, easygoing style, and natural sense of humor, Jaime will be the perfect tour guide!" --Elizabeth Dunn, Ph.D., co-author of Happy Money: The Science of Smarter Spending (Simon & Schuster, 2013) and Associate Professor of Psychology at the
University of British Columbia


"The Happy Traveler is a terrific book and Jaime Kurtz is the perfect person to write it. She is a highly respected researcher who made important discoveries about savoring, affective forecasting, and many other topics relevant to the book. Even better, she is a talented writer and story teller who will regale her readers with tales of traveling nightmares and traveling triumphs." --Timothy Wilson, Ph.D., author of Redirect (Back Bay Books, 2015) and Strangers to Ourselves and Professor of Psychology at the University of Virginia
