Product Details

Praise

“In this thought-provoking volume, Lyubomirsky… examines happiness and conventional notions about how it’s nurtured in relationships, at work, and in one’s own psyche…Lyubomirsky demonstrates that positively reframing life events can mine the best out of even the darkest situations. Provocative and fresh.”
Publishers Weekly

“Informative and engaging….The author examines how the ‘shoulds’ of happiness not only undermine well-being, but also make it hard for individuals to cope with the sometimes difficult realities of adulthood.”
Kirkus Reviews

“No matter what your personal world is like, The Myths of Happiness will change the way you approach your daily life. Lyubomirsky’s thorough research and practical solutions will not only add joy and contentment to your life, but will also allow you to take on issues that you may have been sweeping under the rug for too long.”
Woodbury Magazine

“In her new book, The Myths of Happiness, Dr. Lyubomirsky describes a slew of research-tested actions and words that can do wonders to keep love alive.”
—Jane Brody, New York Times
