Pressestimmen

"The research presented in this book is comprehensive, and it is obvious that the author is very well versed in the area of positive psychology. A definite strength of this book, and one that I think instructors and students will find particularly helpful, are the several case studies presented throughout the test, usually at the end of each chapter. These compelling case studies illustrate the concepts the are discussed in each chapter in vivid and real-world fashion."
