About the Author:

Robert Biswas-Diener is widely known as the "Indiana Jones of Positive Psychology" because his scientific pursuit of the emotional good life has led him to such far flung places as India, Greenland, Israel, Kenya, and Spain. He sits on the editorial boards of the Journal of Positive Psychology and the Journal of Happiness Studies.

Robert is CAPP's Programme Director for Education and Learning. He is also part-time instructor of psychology at Portland State University (USA). Robert is the author of the books, Positive Psychology Coaching: Putting the science of happiness to work for your clients (Wiley, 2007), and Happiness: Unlocking the mysteries of psychological wealth (Blackwell, 2008).

Review:

From the reviews:

“This volume demonstrates how the emphasis of positive psychology can and should be shifted from the individual to the group level. ... Biswas-Diener ... and the other contributors introduce the reader to cutting-edge thinking about public policy and interventions designed to impact individuals who find themselves in a wide variety of social contexts. ... Rarely does one find a volume of this genre to be as enthralling and thought provoking as this one. Summing up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates through faculty and professionals.” (R. B. Stewart Jr., Choice, Vol. 49 (5), January, 2012)
