Reviews

Making Hope Happen instantly draws you in. With intriguing stories and important insights on every page, this book not only illustrates the power of hope, but the simple steps we can all take to get more of it in our lives.--Sian Beilock, author of Choke: What The Secrets Of The Brain Reveal About Getting It Right When You Have To
A clear and powerful introduction to the scientific study of hope by the leading researcher on this vital topic, Making Hope Happen is full of useful strategies for getting our future under control. A pleasure to read, and a treasure to save for those bleak days when defeat stares us in the face.--Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience
Finally, a book that shines a light on one of the most powerful, and most misunderstood, emotional forces in our lives. Making Hope Happen is a smart and incisive look at the scientific and practical aspects of building visions of the future we can believe in and work toward.--Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind
Lopez explores the one emotion--hope--that divides our society into two camps: those of us who believe everyone has it; or, those who believe everyone else has it. Either way, we all want more of it--without even understanding what hope is and how to use it. The first step? Articulating the difference between optimism (a rosy attitude with which some are born) and hope (an ability to see that the future can be better and that you have a role in creating it). Hope is made, not handed down, he writes, and it can be learned even by pessimists.--Dan Buettner, National Geographic Fellow & author of The Blue Zones: Lessons for Living Longer from the People Who've Lived the Longest "O: The Oprah Magazine"
