"Interest in the phenomenon of happiness, and why it matters in the workplace, has never been higher. This book, by a researcher who has been one of the more prominent contributors to this area for nearly four decades, provides a comprehensive appraisal of the current state of thinking regarding the causes, and consequences, of happiness at work." - Timothy A. Judge, University of Florida, Department of Management, USA "Peter Warr has contributed to this area like none other. He presents a very useful and highly readable synopsis of research into emotions, satisfaction, and well-being at work. I highly recommend this book." - Michael Frese, University of Giessen and London Business School, UK "Peter Warr! has produced a formidable book that must be reckoned with for the next 10 to 20 years of research, theory, and practice...
