Thanks for posting that. I had not heard of positive psychology.
I finished a Positive Psychology class @ JSU a couple of semesters back, and it was pretty good. However, my instructor did not have us focus on Ben-Shahar that much. We did study Glasser's "Choice Theory," and Seligman's "Authentic Happiness," though. Since we did not study "Happier" by Ben-Shahar, I elected to purchase a copy for myself and I have found it to be pretty good as well. I recommend all three of those books to anyone who is looking to develop a different approach to living.
