Learned Optimism: how to change your mind and your life by Martin Seligman


Martin Seligman is the leading authority on positive psychology. Most of our activities we use to help develop optimism have their origins in positive psychology because you really can learn optimism!

Known as the father of the science of positive psychology, Martin E.P. Seligman draws on more than twenty years of clinical research to demonstrate how optimism enhances 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 behaviour, 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.
