Description

Health, Happiness, and Well-Being provides readers with a panoramic view of what the best psychological science has to offer regarding how to attain physical health and optimum psychological functioning. Students, faculty, general readers, and professionals can rely on the expertise of leading scholars to assist them in evaluating claims and appreciating the influence of popular yet unsubstantiated beliefs in shaping opinions about behavioral health and psychological well-being. Packed with examples drawn from the media and scientific journals, the authors discuss why accurate, up-to-date, and valid health information is vital to achieving the good life.

"One of the strongest features is that chapters [are] written by the people who have done the research. I am familiar with the work of all of them, and it's a stellar group." -- James E. Maddux, George Mason University

The shipping was just superior

The shipping was just superior; not even one of the books was in contact with the shipping box -anywhere-, not even a corner or the bottom, so all the books arrived in perfect condition. The international shipping took around 2 weeks, so pretty great too.
