Sick of people telling you to be happy? Does compulsory optimism make you want to scream? If so, Jeremy Adam Smith is on your wavelength. But as a writer and editor for UC Berkeley's Greater Good Science Center, he also knows about a lot of research that can improve your life, if you're willing to give positive thinking a chance. He'll explain the science of happiness -- minus all the happy talk. The Greater Good Science Center studies the psychology, sociology and neuroscience of well-being, and teaches skills that foster a thriving, resilient and compassionate society. The center's free online magazine, Greater Good, can be accessed at: http://greatergood.berkeley.edu/.
