Books Info:

Pursuing the Good Life free pdf What makes life most worth living? And how can we pursue a good life? The new perspective of positive psychology takes these questions seriously and provides some useful answers. In Pursuing the Good Life, Christopher Peterson, one of the founders and leaders of positive psychology, compiles for the first time a collection of his reflections on what positive psychologists have learned about the good life, with meditations on how to make it part of everyday life. With the humor, warmth, and wisdom that have made him an award-winning teacher, Peterson explores a range of concerns on the groundswell of positive psychology and the lessons it embraces. What are the potential pitfalls and problems of this perspective? What are the roles played by positive emotions and happiness, by strengths of character, by optimism, and by good relationships with others? How can we pursue the good life in families, workplaces, schools, and sports, no matter who we are or where we live? There is no one correct form of the good life, but the masterful insight collected here offers the mindfulness to chase it.
