I have read Professor Carr's excellent compendium of the positive psychology literature many times. It is a book one comes back to, time and time again; and it has become to me, a vademecum of sorts.
The book is somewhat academic in nature and style, but is highly accessible to the intelligent reader. An excellent summary presents at the end of each chapter, along with suggested reading material. The book seems geared towards students of psychology and her allied subjects, but can feasibly be used as a self-help book. For those interested in augmenting their personal happiness I cannot recommend this book highly enough.

One of the best books on positive psychology. If you want to know how to be happy it terms of where to live, what to eat, who to marry, how many children to have, how much money you need....the answer is in this book! The answers are based on scientific research. A good book for academics or the general public wanting to know more about the science of happiness.

This book is very good for university student. It is esy to understand and is very informative. I would also recommend this to people who are not studying and are interested in increasing their satisfaction with life. It gives many insights and answers on how to lead an enjoyable and productive life

Good book, even though I hate positive psychology. Used it maybe once for my university course. It seems full of lots and it doesnt read that well when the chapters are so long.

This is a solid review of the literature on positive psychology, pitched at a level that does not require a degree in the subject to understand. It does contain advice and guidance on using this material in a self-help context, and the excellent chapter bibliographies reference some of the better self-help literature, but the main emphasis is on understanding the issues and controversies in the field. For a non-psychologist like myself it is not a particularly light read, but this is hardly surprising since it covers a huge amount of ground (in no little detail) in a few hundred pages. Highly recommended.
