About the Author:

Dan Baker, PHD, is a medical psychologist dedicated to the study of human behavior within an organizational setting.

He is also the best-selling author of What Happy People Know and What Happy Companies Know.

Cathy Greenberg, PhD, has held leadership positions at two of the world's most recognized consulting firms, CSC's Global Organizational Change Practice and the Accenture Institute for Strategic Change. She has traveled the globe through her work as an organizational consultant and executive coach. She is the coauthor of What Happy Companies Know.

From Publishers Weekly:

Happiness is in many ways gender specific, says Baker (What Happy People Know), because women's brains are wired to allow them to feel more, and more frequent, positive feelings than men. Baker, founding director of Canyon Ranch's Life Enhancement program, and Greenberg (What Happy Companies Know) draw on positive psychology to show women how to find happiness. Negative traps prevent women from achieving happiness, they say. These traps are easily recognizable: perfectionism, thinking you'll never be happy without a lot of money or a man, focusing on work as opposed to relationships. Happy women, on the other hand, have a sense of personal responsibility, the ability to find opportunity in adversity, a sense of purpose and courage. Writer Yalof helps make all this accessible, but many of these ideas are truisms, and the authors sometimes characterize women with facile generalizations, for example: Most women don't know themselves well enough to determine what their special qualities are. Still, women who find themselves in one of the negative traps may find help here in learning how to look on the bright side. (July)
