Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements

By Tom Rath and James K. Harter

Much of what we think will improve our wellbeing is either misguided or just plain wrong. Contrary to what many people believe, wellbeing isn't just about being happy, wealthy, successful or healthy. Focusing on any of these elements in isolation may drive us to frustration and a sense of failure.

Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements will provide you with a holistic view of what contributes to your wellbeing over a lifetime. The authors identify five elements that shape our lives: career, social, financial, physical and community wellbeing. Written in a conversational style by #1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Rath and bestselling author Jim Harter, Ph.D., this book is filled with fascinating research and novel ideas for boosting your wellbeing in each of these five areas.

By the time you finish reading this book, you should have a better understanding of what makes life worthwhile. This will enable you to enjoy each day and get more out of your life -- and boost the wellbeing of your friends, family members, colleagues, and others in your community.
