I particularly like the writing style of this book: it's readable, well-paced, human and humorous. It wears its hefty academic underpinnings very lightly: a non-academic reader isn't distracted by tons of footnotes and references, nor is there any jargon. If you want to follow up the sources, they are neatly tucked at the back of the book, with useful notes about what and where to look up, including free resources. Each chapter has a key points summary and some really thought-jolting action questions. There's a useful glossary, revealing some of the new vocabulary to describe strengths that Prof Linley and his colleagues are coming up with. Highly recommended.
I thoroughly recommend this book, and especially to any parent or manager.
This is on the same wavelength as Marcus Buckingham's 'signature strengths' material but cleverly combines messages from positive psychology and good old fashioned common sense. No big words. No evangelism, although you do get the distinct impression that it's written from the heart
The chapter on the 'golden seed' is inspired. The book is worth buying for this concept alone
