In his viral TED Talk, which has garnered over 40 million views, Professor Waldinger shared some of the insights he's gained from this long-term study, and in his new book, The Good Life: Lessons from the World’s Longest Scientific Study of Happiness, he goes even deeper into the factors that contribute to a fulfilling life.
