What is The Tetris Effect and how does it shape the way you see the world? Are we set up to naturally be sympathetic to our fellow humans? Shaw Achor takes us on a fascinating journey through Positive Psychology and examines the difference between happy students and unhappy students, the key to implementing new habits, the principle of Activation Energy and more so you can start living a happier life in "Positive Psychology: The Science of Happiness." Shawn Achor is the winner of more than a dozen distinguished teaching awards at Harvard University. He is also the Head Teaching Fellow for the most popular course at Harvard, “Positive Psychology,” which is taken by more than 1,000 students per semester and led by Professor Tal Ben-Shahar. Shawn received his B.A. in English from Harvard and a Master’s from Harvard Divinity School in Christian and Buddhist Ethics. Part of his interest in positive psychology stems from a troubling fact: studies have shown that many of Harvard’s undergraduates suffer from depression at some point in their college careers.
