The Search for Fulfillment: Revolutionary New Research That Reveals the Secret to Long-term Happiness

Susan Krauss Whitbourne, Author . Ballantine $25 (210p) ISBN 978-0-345-49999-8

Whitbourne, a professor of psychology at UMass-Amherst, has put her entire life's work in the pages of her new study, a full 40 years' worth of research, focused on a single group of human subjects. The data Whitbourne has gathered in this “28-UP-style” journey are distilled into an enlightening compass to guide readers through the various possible “pathways,” as she calls them, to happiness and to making the changes necessary for a meaningful life. Whitbourne deserves commendation for both the hopeful message she delivers and the elegant prose with which she conveys her complex research. (Jan.)
