Professor Jan-Emmanuel De Neve (Oxford) and Lord Professor Richard Layard (LSE) discuss the launch of their new textbook, Wellbeing: Science and Policy, at a special event held at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Wellbeing: Science and Policy seeks to provide not only a grounding in the ever-expanding field of wellbeing science, but also practical advice for researchers, policymakers and practitioners alike.

Its findings are profoundly relevant to all social sciences, including psychology, economics, politics, behavioural science and sociology. Illustrations are provided by visual artist David Shrigley.

“The best book I have read in a long time – a fount of knowledge and an inspiring call to action.” – Daniel Kahneman, Nobel Prize winner
