He will speak on his latest book, “The Secret of Happy Families: Improve Your Mornings, Rethink Family Dinner, Fight Smarter, Go Out and Play, and Much More,” which combines cutting-edge science with novel techniques that leading figures in business, sports, technology and the military use with their own families. Smart, funny, and fresh, this book will forever change how your family lives every day.

When Feiler found himself squeezed between caring for aging parents and raising children, he set out on a three-year journey to find the best ideas and solutions to make all his loved ones happier. But instead of the usual psychologists and family “experts,” 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.

The event – a “Page from the Book Festival” engagement – will be held at the MJCCA’s Zaban Park facility on Tilly Mill Road. Tickets are available online at atlantajcc.org or by calling the MJCCA Box Office at (678) 812-4005.
