Joan Oliver Goldsmith author of "How Can We Keep from Singing: Music and the Passionate Life" To read this book is to walk with your head floating in clouds of possibility while your feet tread firmly on the ground of scientific research.

Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi author of "Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience" A revolutionary perspective on psychology, Seligman's "Authentic Happiness" is a beacon for human behavior in the new century. Laypersons and professionals alike will find this book enormously enriching. It summarizes a huge literature, it provides concrete self-assessment tools, and it speaks with a joyful voice about what it means to be fully alive.

Dr. Stephen R. Covey author of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People" An amazing book! Absolutely full of practical wisdom and its authentic sources. What depth of understanding!

Mary Pipher author of "Reviving Ophelia" Seligman takes the best, most recent science in psychology and applies it to our oldest, most basic human questions -- how can we be happy?

A world hungry for happiness will love his new book.
