Some Praise for Thrive

“A must-read for living happier!”
- Dr. Oz

“Thrive is based solidly on scientific findings. It distills the complex research and brings it to life. Much of what you learn from this wonderful book can be used to improve your own happiness.”
- Ed Diener, Professor of Psychology Claremont Graduate University and co-author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience.

“Dan Buettner has hit this one out the ballpark. In fact, reading Thrive had the effect of asking myself whether it was worth devoting any more time to the arduous study of well-being. I would like to add the book to our class reading list, but again I am afraid of signaling to our PhD students that they need not bother learn statistics and survey methods…THRIVE is really subversive!”
- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Professor of Psychology Claremont Graduate University and co-author of Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience.

“A gifted writer, consummate storyteller, and astute observer, Dan Buettner visits the world’s happiest places and brings back innumerable seeds of wisdom that we can apply to increase the happiness quotient in our own lives.”
- Sonja Lyubomirsky,Professor of Psychology Claremont Graduate University and author The How of Happiness.

“Dan Buettner elegantly shares insights in how to live a happy and fulfilling life that will ultimately create world well-being.”
- Deepak Chopra
