Martin Seligman kick

I'm on a serious Martin E. P. Seligman reading kick. If you haven't done so, take a look at the following books:
Seligman, M. E. P. (1998). Learned optimism. New York: Free Press.

Seligman, M. E. P. (2002). Authentic happiness. New York: Free Press.

Peterson, C., & Seligman, M. E. P. (2004). Character strengths and virtues: A handbook and classification. New York: Oxford University Press.

These are not touchy feely self-improvement books (although, there are some of those kind I recommend as well). They are carefully written books based on a growing body of peer-reviewed research in positive psychology that concentrates more on mental health and a good life than on mental illness and life's problems.

If you are interested in happiness and achievement, read them in the order above, and take all the quizzes and self-assessment tests.
