Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Sonja Lyubomirsky is a professor of psychology at the University of California, Riverside, and an award-winning researcher. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Review

“Finally we have a self-help book from a reputable scientist whose advice is based on the best experimental data.”
—Daniel Gilbert, author of Stumbling on Happiness

“Is lasting happiness attainable or a pipe dream? For the last eighteen years, University of California—Riverside professor of psychology Sonja Lyubomirsky has studied this question, and what she reports might even sway pessimists.”
U.S. News & World Report

“Lyubomirsky’s central point is clear: a significant portion of what is called happiness . . . is up for grabs. Taking some pages out of the positive psychology playbook, she coaches readers on how to snag it.”
The New York Review of Books

“The right place to look for science-based advice on how to become happier.”
—Martin Seligman, author of Learned Optimism --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
