Description

National Bestseller

The father of the new science of positive psychology and author of Authentic Happiness draws on more than twenty years of clinical research to demonstrate how optimism enchances the quality of life, and how anyone can learn to practice it. Offering many simple techniques, Dr. Seligman explains how to break an “I—give-up” habit, develop a more constructive explanatory style for interpreting your behavior, and experience the benefits of a more positive interior dialogue. These skills can help break up depression, boost your immune system, better develop your potential, and make you happier..

With generous additional advice on how to encourage optimistic behavior at school, at work and in children, Learned Optimism is both profound and practical–and valuable for every phase of life.

"Vaulted me out of my funk.... So, fellow moderate pessimists, go buy this book." —Marian Sandmaier, The New York Times Book Review

Customer Reviews

Has great thesis but filled with fluff

There's some great stuff in this book but you have to wade through hundreds of pages of useless fluff to get to it.

Where's the beef?

I had this book in print for a long time but never had time to sit and read it so I bought this audio version. Only then did I realize that it is NOT the same but only a small amount of the content that is in print. iTunes should have disclosed this plainly. On a positive note, it did whet my appetite to pick up my book in print.
