From the Back Cover:

"Impressive . . . An excellent job of recounting the collective findings of much of this new science."
The Wall Street Journal

"His lively new book . . . will not make conventional economists happy, but it should cause all of us to reflect more deeply on what really makes life worth living."
—Robert D. Putnam, author of Bowling Alone
