Local Author Says Long-Term Happiness Can Be Won

Umass Amherst psychology professor Susan Krauss Whitbourne’s new book is “The Search for Fulfillment: Revolutionary New Research that Reveals the Secret to Long-Term Happiness.” It follows the lives of study subjects over the course of forty years. She says the research shows that something more than fleeting happiness is within reach. Whitbourne told WFCR’s Susan Kaplan the biggest surprise came from the people who had faced some of the worst life circumstances.
