Flourish (Paperback) – Martin E.P. Seligman – 9781857885699.

Martin Seligman’s most recent book (2012). The sequel to Authentic Happiness.

“Martin Seligman is the inventor of positive psychology and a major figure in the well-being movement. This makes him a significant figure in world culture… this is important… Full of fascinating detail of how this extraordinary venture is developing” Richard Layard, for Observer “I was immediately charmed… Seligman’s intentions are admirable and exciting. He is consumed by his mission, which is to take psychology on from its traditional role in alleviating misery, and broaden it into positive psychology — the entirely different art of teaching us how to be wiser, stronger, more generous to others, more self-disciplined, and more capable of dealing with difficulty and rejection… The book is full of nuggets about why positive approaches work.” Jenni Russell for The Sunday Times
