Nota de la solapa:

In "The Progress Paradox, 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.
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, "The Progress Paradox will change the way you think about your place in the world-and about our collective ability to make it better.

Críticas:

""The Progress Paradox raises some provocative questions. . . . This is a book meant to challenge left and right-keep both sides off balance. . . . A welcome antidote to the demagoguery prevalent in political discussion today."
"-Los Angeles Times
"Well-constructed, civic-minded . . . full of compelling statistics and anecdotes . . . a convincing case for good cheer."
"-The New York Times Book Review
"Lively . . . combines a vast amount of scholarly research and reporting to generate a thoughtful, sustained argument."
"-BusinessWeek
"Utterly engaging . . . There are surprises all through it, and some startling refutations of conventional wisdoms."
-Baltimore "Sun
"With the lively wit and contrarian insight that is a regular feature of his articles in "The "New Republic . . . Mr. Easterbrook offers a bracing reminder of what is too often forgotten but difficult to deny: In the West in the past fifty years, life has gotten steadily better."
"-The Wall Street Journal
"Excellent."
-The Economist

Fascinating. . . may well be this fall's version of "The Tipping Point."
-"Seattle "Post-Intelligencer
