Psychologists are newly fascinated with human nature's positive side. Now,three prominent psychologists, Howard Gardner, Ph.D., of Harvard, Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Ph.D., of Claremont Graduate School, and William Damon, Ph.D., of Stanford, report on their study of "good work." They interviewed prominent journalists and genetics researchers to better understand how people manage to do good work -- of high quality and benefit -- despite contrary societal pressures. It's not an easy read, but readers may find the good news about good work refreshing.
