"One of the strongest features is that chapters [are] written by the people who have done the research. I am familiar with the work of all of them, and it's a stellar group." - James E. Maddux, George Mason University Health, Happiness, and Well-Being provides readers with a panoramic view of what the best psychological science has to offer regarding how to attain physical health and optimum psychological functioning.

Packed with examples drawn from the media and scientific journals, the authors discuss why accurate, up-to-date, and valid health information is vital to achieving the good life.
