    Dr. Robert Biswas-Diener is known as the "Indiana Jones of positive psychology," becuase his studies on strengths and happiness have taken him to such far-flung destinations as Greenland, Spain, Kenya, Israel, and India. He is the coauthor, with Ben Dean, of Positive Psychology Coaching: Putting the Science of Happiness to Work for Your Clients (published by Wiley) and, with his father, Ed Diener, of Happiness: Unlocking the Mysteries of Psychological Wealth , (published by Wiley-Blackwell). In 2005 Dr. Biswas-Diener founded Positive Psychology Services, LLC, a training and coaching consultancy. He and his colleagues train thousands of professionals in approximately 15 countries annually.
