Chuck Latovich
Boston
My name is Chuck Latovich, and I follow the happiness beat. By writing about material and research on happiness, I hope to help people understand some of the factors that lead to fuller lives. It's a complex subject, and I don't promise easy answers, but you'll find plenty to interest you here, and maybe some information that you can adapt and use as you try to get the most out of being alive.
Interests: Positive psychology, electronic gadgets, movies, cats, diversity, all things French, good food and wine, Boston, literature, FiestaWare.
