From the author of the International Bestseller Authentic Happiness. In this groundbreaking book, one of the world's foremost academic psychologists - and founder of the Positive Psychology movement - offers a new theory on what makes people flourish and how to truly get the most out of life. Flourish is a fascinating evolution of Seligman's thinking, and offers inspiring stories of Positive Psychology in action - innovative schools that add resilience to their curricula; a new theory of success and intelligence; and evidence on how positive physical health can turn medicine on its head. Building on his game-changing work on optimism, motivation and character, Seligman shows us how to flourish and bring well-being into both our personal lives and society as a whole. Wellbeing is a way of thinking that the new coalition government is taking very seriously indeed.
