The book highlights both the challenges and opportunities in the field of psychology and behavioral sciences, with an emphasis on identifying practical implications for professionals, educators and administrators, and researchers in Asia and Pacific regions. Societies in the said regions have experienced massive changes to their social system, changes that are endured by societies worldwide, such as those related to globalization, new technologies, and new norms regarding respect for individual diversity and well-being. Although the changes offer a wealth of new opportunities, they also act as potential sources of tension and apprehension. The book discusses the state-of-the-art topics, on critical issues, in various sub-fields of psychology and the behavioral sciences, such as Clinical Psychology, Child & Developmental Psychology, Industrial & Organizational Psychology, Experimental Psychology, Social Psychology, and Educational Psychology.

The financial Crash of 2008 was not just about government regulation or lack thereof; the low tide of the Crash also revealed just how vulnerable our societies are to those organizations which focus so much on their own self-serving goals, that they ignore the damage they can do outside their walls. To counter this, the authors ask whether there is a better way to run this capitalist system of ours, instead of being tempted to throw it out and replace it with something much worse. Their prescription is to create the high engagement work culture in our organizations through a greater balance between the urges of 'me' and the desires and needs of 'we'; a work culture which brings real benefits to all stakeholders, not just the few, and drives the performance of our organizations to new heights. This is not 'pie in the sky': it is being lived by those companies featured in detail in these pages, such as Whole Foods Market and BMW.

Social Happiness examines the achievements and potential of applied happiness scholarship in a variety of contexts and argues that progressive policies must explicitly consider happiness. Neil Thin expertly traces the rise of the theme of happiness in scholarship, policy, and moral discourse and then explores the practical implications for happiness studies in a range of social experiences, including relationship guidance, parenting, schooling, gender reform, work-life harmony, and rethinking old age.

A timeless summary of everything scientific research has proven you ever need to know to live your best life, The Serious Pursuit of Happiness is written as a potentially life-changing combination of 10% textbook, 80% happiness roadmap, and 10% action planner. Just 3 hours of reading time is all you need to invest to learn what you need to know to live the happiest and most fulfilling life possible! Here's why: Most people, when asked if they would like to be happy, reply along these lines: "Sure. Just tell me what to do!" And that's exactly what this book does. Rich in prescribed actions and rooted in comprehensive research - Miller's book is unparalleled in its ability to help the reader learn exactly what to do - and what not to do - to flourish and thrive - beginning now. Deliberately designed to be a prescriptive, one-stop happiness shop, this classic and timeless "how to" book is the ultimate self-help guide to well being - containing over 400 specific, practical, powerful, and proven strategies and actions that individuals can begin to easily implement on their own - immediately - to live happier, more rewarding, and more meaningful lives. The promise of Miller's book is that readers around the world can read one small, companion-sized book and learn literally everything that has been proven about specifically how people should think, how they should act, what kind of person they should be, and what exactly they should actually do to flourish and thrive to live as "happily ever after" as is possible. Intended to be both a "quick read" as well as a lifetime companion guidebook, this one compact-sized book is packed with the results from Miller's over 10 years of "researching the research." This in-depth process included a summarization of over 40 years of happiness research including hundreds of studies by leading psychologists the world over, the findings of the revolutionary and still-emerging new science of Positive Psychology, recent advances by biologists and neurologists, and the ancient wisdom of revered philosophers - all deftly synthesized down into six powerful and proven imperatives. Simply organized into a three phase "journey" to a happier life that is easy to understand and follow - The Serious Pursuit of Happiness is a 'must-read' for individuals IF they are serious about learning exactly what to do to invite and then keep happiness in their life. It not only lights the paths to follow by spelling out in detail the proven actions to add to their day-to-day life to flourish - it also highlights the myths and faulty thinking that are barriers to achieving lasting meaning, fulfillment, and joy - and need to be avoided. For companies and other organizations with enlightened leaders, Miller's book offers an opportunity to "do well by doing good" for their employees by giving them the gift of a potential lifetime of happiness - while also helping to enable them to perform at a higher level. Research has shown the following to be true: * Psychologically well employees consistently exhibit higher levels of engagement, performance, productivity, loyalty, and commitment. * Between 10% and 25% of job performance variance is correlated with overall well being. * Employees who are unhappy in life are unlikely to find job satisfaction at work. * Happier employees have reduced absenteeism, reduced "presenteeism," less stress, and reduced turnover while working with increased energy, creativity, innovation, and dedication. They display an increased ability to cope with life's realities and have an improved perspective on why they are working so hard - and why they should be if they aren't now. And they are healthier. Any and all companies and organizations who want to maximize their investment in human capital, attract and retain the best and the brightest, and remain competitive in the global world of today and tomorrow should consider making this book required reading for all stakeholders.
