Editorial Reviews

Review

`An impressive testimony to (Argyle's) enthusiasm, energy, eclecticism and grasp of the subject.' - Times Higher Education Supplement

"This new edition is an excellent updated synthesis of the research in what has been a very successful area of advance in social psychology, due in no small measure to Michael Argyle’s own work in the field." – W. Peter Robinson, Professor of Social Psychology, University of Bristol.

"This book is bigger and better than the first edition. The author has definitely kept up with progress in the field and has summarised it well." – Adrian Furnham, Professor of Psychology, University College London.

"Michael Argyle’s book gives an excellent broad overview of the scientific field of subjective well-being – the study of happiness, life satisfaction, and positive affect. Readers will discover many interesting, and even exciting, new facts about happiness. At the same time, this is not a difficult read… Argyle has done an outstanding job of introducing readers to an exciting new scientific field in the study of human behaviour." – Ed Diener, Professor of Psychology, University of Illinois.

This book was written in style and order to talk both to beginners in psychological studies and more advanced analysts. It is a source for basic classifications as well as useful references to selected scientific litterature. Planners of related psycho-social experiments might get extra benefit if looking at it before starting.
