`Preventive stress management is lifesaving but the power of positive thought, word and action is life giving. Management can transform work life with the positive power of happiness. Cooper and Robertson organize the domain's best theory and research by the world's leading authors in a way to deliver positive results.' -- James (Jim) C. Quick, The University of Texas, Arlington, US `The significance of this book lies in how comprehensively it brings together the underlying theory and science of wellbeing. Its value is further enhanced by the internationally recognized scholars used to explore the management of wellbeing and happiness. This volume is immensely important to all of those wishing to advance their understanding of wellbeing and happiness at work and in doing so, enthusing them to use that understanding to contribute to improving the quality of working life.' -- Philip Dewe, Birkbeck, University of London, UK `The study of wellbeing and happiness at work is now one of the most interesting and important areas of research in business and management. This has been driven by three things. The rise of positive psychology; the interest of economists as well as psychologists and sociologists in this topic; and the increase in theoretical and methodological important chapters and papers. Cooper and Robertson have carefully and thoughtfully got together in one volume practically all of the major papers in this area. This collection has 31 chapters, categorized into 8 sections. It is up-to-date, multidisciplinary, and covers the whole area remarkably well. This will be a valuable resource for years to come.' -- Professor Adrian Furnham, University College London, UK
