Secrets of Happy Families: Wisdom from Empirical study runs counter to traditional wisdom

For his new book, The Secrets of Happy Families, Bruce Feiler used his experience as an investigative reporter to discover new techniques and ideas to make contemporary family life more functional, more meaningful and more fun. Rather than turning to traditional experts, he interviewed creative thinkers from the fields of business, sports, technology, television and the military and much of what he found countered age old-wisdom about what it takes to have a fulfilling family life. Guest host Maiken Scott talks with Feiler in this hour of Radio times about some of the ideas that are changing American family life, what happy families do right, and what the rest of us can learn from them.
