'A practical map for a flourishing life' (Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence)

In this groundbreaking, heart-lifting and deeply useful book, Martin Seligman, internationally esteemed psychologist and the father of Positive Psychology, shows us that happiness can be learned and cultivated.

Using many years of in-depth psychological research he lays out the 24 strengths and virtues unique to the human psyche and teaches you how to identify the ones you possess. By calling upon your signature strengths, you will not only develop natural buffers against misfortune and negative emotion, but also improve the world around you - at work, in love and in raising children - achieving new and sustainable contentment, joy and meaning.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A revolutionary perspective on psychology. Authentic Happiness is a beacon for human behaviour [and] speaks with a joyful voice about what it means to be alive -- Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, author of Flow
At last, psychology gets serious about glee, fun and happiness. Martin Seligman has given us a gift - a practical map for the perennial quest for a flourishing life -- Daniel Goleman, author of Emotional Intelligence
A highly insightful and personal reflection on the nature of happiness, from one of the most creative and influential psychologists of our time -- Steven Pinker, author of The Better Angels of Our Nature
An amazing book! Absolutely full of practical wisdom and its authentic sources. What depth of understanding! Seligman affirms our power of choice with a perspective on old and new psychology I found compelling and fascinating. This book will help restore the Character Ethic -- Stephen R Covey, author of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People
Seligman takes the best, most recent science in psychology and applies it to our oldest, most basic human questions: How can we be happy? And how can we be good? His book is groundbreaking, heart-lifting, and most important, deeply useful. With pun intended, I'm optimistic about its success. -- Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia
An impressive achievement. This book will change how people view psychology and how all of us view ourselves. -- Howard Gardner, Harvard University, author of Multiple Intelligences
Martin Seligman is on a mission: to take the rich and suprising findings of a young field called Positive Psychology and use them to imporve the mental, moral and spiritual well-being of his readers. Being Positive Psychology's founder, as well as a vivid, inspiring writer, he is uniquely qualified for this job. Only one person could have written Authentic Happiness, but millions could benefit from it. -- Robert Wright, author of The Moral Animal
