"Written by one of the most influential contributors to this new perspective in science, Positivity provides a wonderful synthesis of what positive psychology has accomplished in the first decade of its existence. It is full of deep insights about human behavior as well as useful suggestions for how to apply them in everyday life." --Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, Ph.D., author of "Flow" ""Positivity" is literally the feel-good book of the year, providing a scientifically sound prescription for joy, health, and creativity.
