I'm trying to broaden the scope of positive psychology, well beyond the smiley face. Happiness is just one-fifth of what human beings choose to do.

Martin Seligman


Let's make a bet. At some point in your life, you have asked yourself a variation of the following question: "How can I be happy?" Whether it was "How can I be happier?", or "How can I be happy more often?", or "How can I go back to being happy?" - surely you've turned this over in your head at least a couple times?

Today's book comes from the person you should direct this question to. He's a founding father of happiness research and established the entire scientific field of positive psychology. His name is Martin Seligman. If you've heard Martin Seligman's name before, it was likely in connection with a book called Learned Optimism.

In Flourish, Seligman lays out a holistic model of happiness, going beyond psychology as a way to alleviate suffering and instead using psychological tricks to build a better life.
