What I'm Reading Now
A note on the books I discuss: I only write about the books I like and I confess that I have a weakness for emerging writers. I know just how hard it is to get your first book finished and published! I hope you will find here some ideas for books that you might like to read and/or discuss also. I'd love to hear your suggestions/recommendations as well.
Review coming up:
Helping people find happiness and meaning is precisely the goal of the new field of positive psychology, a field in which I have been active, so this book is in a way about the origins of positive psychology in ancient wisdom and the applications of positive psychology today. Most of the research I will cover was done by scientists who would not consider themselves positive psychologists. Nonetheless, I have drawn on ten ancient ideas and a great variety of modern research findings to tell the best story I can about the causes of human flourishing, and the obstacles to well being that we place in our own paths.
