The Progress Paradox

How Life Gets Better While People Feel Worse
  • By Gregg Easterbrook
In @lt;i@gt;The Progress Paradox@lt;/i@gt;, Gregg Easterbrook draws upon three decades of wide-ranging research and thinking to make the persuasive assertion that almost all aspects of Western life have vastly improved in the past century-and yet today, most men and women feel less happy than in previous generations.@lt;br@gt;@lt;br@gt;Detailing the emerging science of "positive psychology," which seeks to understand what causes a person's sense of well-being, Easterbrook offers an alternative to our culture of crisis and complaint. He makes a compelling case that optimism, gratitude, and acts of forgiveness not only make modern life more fulfilling but are actually in our self-interest. An affirming and constructive way of seeing life anew, @lt;i@gt;The Progress Paradox@lt;/i@gt; will change the way you think about your place in the world-and about our collective ability to make it better.
