Meet the Author

ROBERT BISWAS-DIENER, MS, holds a master's degree in clinical psychology from Pacific University and, in 2005, founded Meridian Life Coaching, LLC, to provide life coaching services to a wide range of academics and professionals. He is known as the "Indiana Jones of positive psychology," with his studies taking him to such far-flung destinations as Greenland, Spain, Kenya, Israel, and India, where he has worked with remote groups of people traditionally overlooked by researchers. He is the coauthor, with Ben Dean, of Positive Psychology Coaching: Putting the Science of Happiness to Work for Your Clients (published by Wiley) and, with his father, Ed Diener, of Happiness: Unlocking the Mysteries of Psychological Wealth, (published by Wiley-Blackwell).
