Martin Seligman
Learned Optimism : How to Change Your Mind and Your Life

someone writes:
How an optimistic outlook on life can be learned and influence your life for good, how you feel, your health, success at work, etc. Is useful to help some people (like Mormons) who have a negative future view because of doctrines like that of the second coming destruction and the culture going to hell in a handbasket. I found it therapeutic.


What is crucial to a happy successful life, according to the author of this groundbreaking book, is what we say to ourselves when we experience failures and disappointments that inevitably come to even the most fortunate men and women. How we explain out setbacks to ourselves can make the difference between overcoming defeat and succumbing to it, and here Seligman documents the power of optimism in promoting achievement and improving health.
