A leading social psychologist examines why popularity matters so profoundly in our lives - and how to become genuinely popular. But it is not always the most conventionally popular people who are happier. There is, in fact, more than one type of popularity, and many of us may be still wishing for the wrong one. More than childhood intellect, family background, or prior psychological symptoms, psychology has begun to discover that it's our genuine popularity as likable people in our early years that predicts how happy we grow up to be. The final section of the book will offer strategies for achieving the healthy type of popularity, not only for yourself, but also for your children.
