Summary
"In this book the authors present scientific evidence revealing that happiness is not overrated, and is good for people's health, social relationships, job success, longevity, and altruism. They advocate an optimal level of happiness in which people do not seek euphoria, but pursue life satisfaction, meaning, and frequent positive emotions, with recognition that some negative emotions are an integral part of a happy life." "The authors describe why happiness alone is not enough; people need to be happy for the right reasons. They describe the new concept of Psychological Wealth, which extends beyond material riches, and beyond popular concepts like emotional intelligence and social capital. The book describes the authors' data collection around the globe that shows that people are not necessarily "born" happy, but can and do change their levels of happiness." "The authors provide a model for a happy approach to life, based on Attention, Interpretation, and Memory (AIM). Diener and Biswas-Diener suggest that happiness is about away of traveling, learning to react in positive ways to the world, rather than simply being a destination or set of circumstances."--BOOK JACKET
