Positive Psychology in a Nutshell: The Science of Happiness

 A concise but comprehensive introduction to the science of happiness for an intelligent lay reader. Written in an accessible and engaging style with light-hearted illustrations, it offers many tips and tools for everyday living. Most of the topics of positive psychology are included – including happiness, positive emotions, strengths, hope, love, optimism, flow – as well as those not always covered, such as eudaimonic well-being, time, freedom of choice and meaning. In the last edition you will find an updated section on Internet resources, a new chapter on happiness interventions, as well as recommendations for further reading. This book is translated into French, Russian and Chinese.

“Refreshing and highly readable, this book combines serious scholarship with humour, candour and tips for living. A splendid foundation for the emerging science of positive psychology. It gets my whole-hearted endorsement.” – Professor Felicia Huppert, University of Cambridge“Positive Psychology in a Nutshell is a comprehensive, user friendly, thoughtful introduction and critique of the field. Simply put, it is the best overview out there that can be read in a couple of sittings. Those with no psychology background find it fascinating and informative; those with serious credentials find it to be a credible overview and critique of the field.” – Dr Carol Kauffman, Co-founder and Director of the Coaching and Positive Psychology Initiative, Harvard Medical School, USA.
Positive Psychology in a Nutshell is in its 3rd edition and has been translated to many languages including Russian and French
