A revolutionary new way to cultivate lasting love—based on the Scientific American Mind cover story, “The Happy Couple.”

Positive psychology experts and husband-and-wife team Suzann Pileggi Pawelski and James Pawelski reveal for the first time how to apply the principles of positive psychology to create and enjoy healthy, successful, and satisfying relationships that last.
