Publisher Review

An outstanding book. It combines the longest and richest study of human lives anywhere with two remarkable authors of extraordinary breadth -- Sir Richard Layard, Professor of Economics, LSE and author of Can We Be Happier? This is the book we've been waiting for. With grace, humor, and scientific rigor, The Good Life challenges our most stubborn assumptions, and proves that the kind of thriving, happy life we all hope for may have been hiding in plain sight all along. It couldn't have come at a better time -- Guy Raz In the time of 'social distancing' and a 'loneliness epidemic' understanding the importance of what makes a good life is paramount now more than ever. Both informative and practical, this book is a must read -- Julianne Holt-Lunstad, Fellow of The Society of Experimental Social Psychology This is the most significant account of one of the most important studies in mental health, conducted and presented by the best clinician scientists in the field ... this book offers unparalleled insight into our nature as people -- Peter Fonagy, Professor of Psychoanalysis and Developmental Science, UCL Accessible, interesting and grounded in research - it is bound to make a difference in the lives of millions -- Tal ben Shahar
