From the bestselling author of Learned Optimism and Authentic Happiness comes �a relentlessly optimistic guidebook on finding and securing individual happiness� (Kirkus Reviews).With this unprecedented promise internationally esteemed psychologist Martin Seligman begins Flourish his first book in ten years�and the first to present his dynamic new concept of what well-being really is. Traditionally the goal of psychology has been to relieve human suffering but the goal of the Positive Psychology movement which Dr. Seligman has led for fifteen years is different�it�s about actually raising the bar for the human condition. Flourish builds on Dr. Seligman�s game-changing work on optimism motivation and character to show how to get the most out of life unveiling an electrifying new theory of what makes a good life�for individuals for communities and for nations. In a fascinating evolution of thought and practice Flourish refines what Positive Psychology is all about. While certainly a part of well-being happiness alone doesn�t give life meaning. Seligman now asks What is it that enables you to cultivate your talents to build deep lasting relationships with others to feel pleasure and to contribute meaningfully to the world? In a word what is it that allows you to flourish? �Well-being� takes the stage front and center and Happiness (or Positive Emotion) becomes one of the five pillars of Positive Psychology along with Engagement Relationships Meaning and Accomplishment�or PERMA the permanent building blocks for a life of profound fulfillment. Thought-provoking in its implications for education economics therapy medicine and public policy�the very fabric of society�Flourish tells inspiring stories of Positive Psychology in action including how the entire U.S. Army is now trained in emotional resiliencehow innovative schools can educate for fulfillment in life and not just for workplace successand how corporations can improve performance at the same time as they raise employee well-being. With interactive exercises to help readers explore their own attitudes and aims Flourish is a watershed in the understanding of happiness as well as a tool for getting the most out of life. On the cutting edge of a science that has changed millions of lives Dr. Seligman now creates the ultimate extension and capstone of his bestselling classics Authentic Happiness and Learned Optimism.Read more
