I would strongly recommend this book to all students and teachers of psychology.” Nanette Mutrie, Professor of Exercise and Sport Psychology, Strathclyde University, UK“The text is well written, clear and engaging making it an invaluable resource to those seeking an introductory text or for a more comprehensive coverage of the applications of positive psychology.
