"Smith, an author, developer, and trainer, Jones, and Reid, a secondary teacher, explain how positivity leads to successful outcomes in schools, rather than being a result of them. They propose a happiness model, discuss theories of happiness, and detail techniques for making classrooms, schools, and individuals happier. They also examine the importance of social networks, the relationship of affluence to happiness, how childhood today is different, the benefits of happiness and what research reveals, and the importance of positive relationships and classroom climate." -Eithne O'Leyne, BOOK NEWS, Inc.

'You would expect something exceptional from these three practitioners and the book doesn't disappoint. You won't be able to put it down. It will make you smile, and more importantly, it will make your school smile too and increase the likelihood of countless pupils having happier and more fulfilled lives. Buy this for your staff library and read it yourself during the school holiday. If you do I guarantee you'll enjoy next term better and your school will be a happier place. And when you read this, you'll be convinced there could be no more worthwhile goal than this.'

Tim Brighouse, Commissioner for London Schools and visiting Professor at the Institute of Education at London University, UK
"A brave and timely book. Brave because it enters territory that historically we have tended to avoid... Timely because more than ever before there is a growing consensus that happiness and well-being are the issues that educators and all those concerned with children's services should be focussing on. This book models its message - it is affirmative, optimistic and focused on change and growth."

John West-Burnham, writer, teacher and consultant in education leadership, and Professor of Educational Leadership at St Mary's University College, Twickenham, UK
