How positive psychology makes people happier

NSP Featured Book

Book | Learned Optimism & Flourish

As director of the Penn Positive Psychology Center, Martin Seligman pioneered the study of positive thinking.

His seminal book Learned Optimism, demonstrates how positive thinking can change your life. The studies and examples in this book remain relevant for leaders today. In his most recent work, Flourish, Seligman evolves his take on optimism into what he calls “well-being”—a multilayered goal that includes overcoming challenges.

Grounded in rigorous science including statistical tests, validated questionnaires, thoroughly researched exercises, and large, representative samples, this book provides evidence that positive psychology actually makes people happier. In contrast to pop psychology and the bulk of self-improvement, Martin's writing is credible and believable because of the underlying science.
