Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Positivity is literally the feel-good book of the year, providing a scientifically sound prescription for joy, health, and creativity. Read one to two chapters daily as needed or until grumpiness subsides. Daniel Gilbert, professor of psychology, Harvard University, and author of Stumbling on Happiness
Written by one of the most influential contributors to this new perspective in science, Positivity provides a wonderful synthesis of what positive psychology has accomplished in the first decade of its existence. It is full of deep insights about human behavior as well as useful suggestions for how to apply them in everyday life. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Ph.D., author of Flow
