This volume, edited by June Gruber and Judith T. Moskowitz, draws together an impressive lineup of scientists who have articulated a diverse set of perspectives on The Light and Dark Sides of Positive Emotion. It is not only the largest collection of leading edge research on pleasant affective states to date, but also the most nuanced. In calling out both the light and dark sides of those emotions infused with pleasantness, this collection of work challenges us to appreciate positive emotions with greater attunement to context, balance, boundary conditions, and complexity. Beyond exploring the light and darks sides, then, a full science of positive emotions will eventually need also to address the invisible and amalgamated sides of pleasant affective states as well. The present volume represents a vital and impressive step in this direction.
