What Makes Us Happy? An Interview at NPR

June 2, 2009

A lengthy and fascinating interview at NPR with the author of a cover story from the most recent Atlantic Monthly:

Journalist Joshua Wolf Shenk gained access to one of the most comprehensive studies conducted to find the formula for happiness. “What Makes Us Happy?” is his essay in the June issue of The Atlantic. Shenk, along with Todd Kashdan, professor of psychology and author of Curious: Discover the Missing Ingredient to a Fulfilling Life, explore what makes us happy.

I covered this piece, and the questions and answers it raised, in an eight part post beginning here.
