Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300091060, Paperback)

Why in prosperous market democracies today do so many people regard themselves as unhappy? Robert Lane draws on extensive research in many fields to show that the main sources of well-being in advanced economies are friendships and a good family life; income has little to do with happiness once a person rises above the poverty level. Lane urges us to alter priorities and emphasise companionship over higher income.
