Best-selling author and New York Times family columnist Bruce Feiler found himself squeezed between aging parents and rising children. He set out on a three-year journey to find the smartest ideas, cutting-edge research, and novel solutions to make his family happier.
He sought out the most creative minds from Silicon Valley to the country's top negotiators, from the set of Modern Family to the Green Berets and asked what team-building exercises and problem-solving techniques they use with their families. Feiler then tested these ideas with his own wife and kids.
The result is The Secrets of Happy Families, an original look at how families can draw closer together, complete with 200 best practices.
Feiler is the author of Walking the Bible, The Council of Dads, Abraham, Where God Was Born, and America's Prophet. In conversation with David Gregory, host of NBC's "Meet the Press" and fellow dad of twins
