Praise for Wellbeing

"The Guide’s major strengths are its breadth and depth with reviews of the literature, case studies, empirical findings, historical reflections, and future guidance. Scientists working on any subfield can now see how their work informs other fields and ideas for interdisciplinary projects."
(PsycCRITIQUES, March 2015)

"I would recommend this book for acquisition. Each volume has its own ISBN and there are volume indexes, rather than a master index, so specialist libraries could purchase individual volumes. The different volumes hang together well however, so I would recommend getting the set if possible. This set has arrived on the crest of a wave of academic and, to a lesser extent, public interest. Academic libraries catering for courses in psychology, health-related subjects, education, social policy or economics will all find useful material here." (Reference Reviews, 2014)

“This series could complement a variety of libraries, such as a home or personal library, office, or academic setting. Wellbeing is a global topic that influences each individual. This series is a valuable resource.” (American Reference Books Annual, 1 June 2014)
