happy together

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. Combining their deep knowledge in this field with extensive scientific research, real-life examples, advice from relationship scientists, and fun exercises and quizzes for couples, they identify four key areas that are crucial for building and sustaining love over the long run: passion, positive emotions, savoring, and strengths.

Inspiring, encouraging and accessible, Happy Together is an essential roadmap to rewarding, long-lasting romance for any couple, whether they're looking to start off a relationship on the right foot, weather difficult times, reignite passion, or transform a good marriage into a great one.
