The best revenge is a life well lived. This is the essence of a new book exploring human memory and emotion. Pollyanna's Revenge: How Memory and Emotion Foster Happiness explores people's ability to stay strong in the face of adversity, to bounce back after failure, and to thrive in even the most dire of circumstances. This new book combines empirical evidence gathered from around the world and little known narratives from places and people that exemplify the best and worst of the life experience. The reader will visit the fictional town of Mayberry, setting of the Andy Griffith Show; meet a convicted murderer who has asked God to forgive his sins; hear the tale of a bully that terrorized a midwestern town for a decade; and get to know a real life Pollyanna who is making the best of life in spite of significant health and emotional setbacks. Along the way, this book provides evidence that shows that positive emotions and events outnumber and outlast negative emotions and events. Summarizing almost 20 years of research in autobiographical memory, this book describes a phenomenon known as 'the fading affect bias', which is the tendency for negative emotions to fade faster than positive emotions. Pollyanna's Revenge is a book for readers interested in positive psychology, who want to better understand how the processes of the mind help most people to lead a happier life.
