Flourish

Martin Seligman
Authors:
Martin Seligman

This book will help you flourish - 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.
