    Review quote
    "Finally we have a self-help book from a reputable scientist whose advice is based on the best experimental data... "The How of Happiness "is smart, fun, and interesting--and unlike almost every other book on the same shelf, it also happens to be true." -Daniel Gilbert, Harvard University professor of psychology and author of "Stumbling on Happiness" "A guide to sustaining your newfound contentment." --"Psychology Today" "Lyubomirsky's central point is clear: a significant portion of what is called happiness . . . is up for grabs. Taking some pages out of the positive psychology playbook, she coaches readers on how to snag it." -"The New York Review of Books" "Is lasting happiness attainable or a pipe dream? For the last eighteen years, University of California-Riverside professor of psychology Sonja Lyubomirsky has studied this question, and what she reports might even sway pessimists." -"U.S. News & World Report" "The right place to look for science-based advice on how to become happier." -Martin Seligman, author of "Learned Optimism"
