Product description


"Kudos to James Maddux for assembling this state-of-the-art recap of the intrapersonal and interpersonal sources of human flourishing. From neuroscience to culture to relationships to meaning and spirituality, this readable book is a definitive summary of research on the roots of well-being." -David G. Myers, Hope College, USA

"This excellent volume gives a much-needed overview of the rapidly growing field of subjective well-being. Its scholarly summaries bring readers up-to-date on many of the most important topics regarding happiness and life satisfaction, from perennial topics such as gratitude, humility, and forgiveness to emerging topics such as media and sexual orientation." – Edward F. Diener, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA

"For scholars and practitioners interested in well-being and its promotion, this is the definitive volume. Comprehensive in coverage, with chapters by the leading experts, it will be the milestone in the field for years to come." – Stephen Joseph, University of Nottingham, UK

Full content visible, double tap to read brief content.

My major scholarly interest is the interface of social, clinical, and health psychology, which is concerned with the ways that theory and research from social psychology can help us understand psychological adjustment, psychological disorders, and health-related behavior. My professional mission is to enhance well-being around the world through the promotion of psychological science.

I earned my Ph.D in clinical psychology (with a minor in social psychology) from the University of Alabama in 1981. I am the former director of the clinical doctoral program at George Mason and former editor of the Journal of Social and Clinical Psychology.
