or improve your analytic abilities big time!
I am reading concurrently the books "Positive Psychology for Dummies" and Barbara Ehrenreich's book "Bright Sided" (recommended by Meddy).
Not at the same time, or course.....I trade off.
The Dummy book tells you how to apply Positive psychology to your life.....
Bright Sided says that positive thinking has in essence ruined America.
As is the usual, I think the truth (at least for me) is somewhere in the middle--even Martin Seligman, the Positive Psychology Guru, states that critical thinkers and risk assessors are needed as well to look on the not-so bright side....
It will be an interesting ride. So far, Ehrenreich wins for just plain good writing!
