Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

Meet Ron Gutman, a man who wields a nearly mercenary zeal for the human smile. His treatise on the myriad benefits of smiling begins in rural Zimbabwe, but it reaches across the globe, through several branches of science, into a motley trove of peer-reviewed literature, and--frankly--from ear to ear. Along the way, Gutman addresses a grin-inducing gauntlet of whimsical questions. Did you know that we can detect smiles at double the distance from which we can distinguish other facial expressions? Why do emoticons smile differently in English than they do in Japanese? What does the Gross National Happiness (GHP) index actually measure? And what's on your Dandelion List? The fun goes on. A single smile can pack the dopamine load of 2,000 chocolate bars, or the visceral head-rush of winning $25,000! (And we're letting our children do this 400 times a day?!) Smiling can even make your next skydive statistically safer. Cynics, consider yourselves warned. --Jason Kirk
