Review

A realistic approach to positive thinking (Sunday Times)

It is the science and professional experience at Gaffney's disposal that makes her book so relevant ... presented in such a friendly and persuasive way that it's hard to resist (Irish Examiner)

Shows us how we can approach life with a renewed sense of vigour and purpose (Metro Herald)

From the Back Cover

Flourishing people are not just happier - they are more resilient, optimistic, and creative.
They spot opportunities, pursue goals with conviction and get on well with others.
They are able to manage their emotions and they face set-backs with wisdom, courage and a sense of possibility.
As they take on life's challenges, flourishing people have a head-start.

You may find the idea of flourishing like this unimaginable. You may think that in crisis times survival is the best we can hope for. However, distinguished psychologist Maureen Gaffney believes passionately that not only is it possible for all of us to flourish, but in an increasingly uncertain world, it is essential that we plan to do so.

Flourishing is about achieving a deeper sense of well-being, meaning and purpose despite, and indeed very often because of, adversity. Indeed, Maureen Gaffney explains that adversity can be a positive turning point in our lives. Her message is that we can all flourish and in this exciting and innovative book - packed full of practical examples and techniques - she shows us how.

Flourishing is a unique book - a one-stop resource for positive living that will reward readers for years to come. Drawing on her vast experience of working with people and organisations, and on a fascinating body of recent research, Maureen Gaffney has written a gripping, stimulating and inspiring manifesto on how to flourish and why we need to.

Learning to flourish - and helping others to flourish - is the most powerful and worthwhile investment we can make in our own well-being and in our country's future.

PLUS: head shot of author - supplied (no picture credit) - with following copy alongside:

Dr Maureen Gaffney is one of Ireland most accomplished psychologists. She is also one of its most respected and trusted commentators on everything from personal development to organisational, cultural and societal change.
