From the author of the international bestseller, LEARNED OPTIMISM, comes a ground-breaking look at the nature of happiness and how everyone has the power to inject real joy into their lives

AUTHENTIC HAPPINESS is the first book to examine the mechanisms by which mentally healthy people become happy, and how happy people become very happy. Martin E. Seligman is the international leader of the Positive Psychology Movement. His first trade book, the international bestseller LEARNED OPTIMISM, greatly influenced the way people thought about mental health by bringing the concepts of cognitive psychology to a mass audience.

AUTHENTIC HAPPINESS is an even bigger ground-breaker. It represents the first time any scientist has placed value in the study not only of mental illness, but of 'mental wellness'. It's not about curing one's ills, but about exercising one's strengths and virtues in order to achieve what Seligman terms 'authentic happiness'. The life-changing lesson of AUTHENTIC HAPPINESS is that, by assessing the very best in ourselves, we can improve the world around us and achieve new and lasting levels of genuine contentment and joy.

Hi, I have not had a chance to read the entire book yet but know about Martin Seligman and his writings. I have dipped into it and it is easy to read and well laid out. A book that you can refer back to.
