"An informative review of positive psychology research married with interesting, real-world examples of living the good life." -- Psychology Today
"In his wonderful book Pursuing the Good Life, Christopher Peterson has provided the world with a precious gift. His wise, warm, witty, and insightful collection of reflections on positive psychology radiate the many strengths and virtues that are central to the field of positive psychology--humility, bravery, love, kindness, humor, citizenship, love of learning, and much more. With the lightest touch of a true master, Peterson surveys a vast territory of human experience, with blog posts on the critical focus of positive psychology, the nature of positive emotions and experiences, positive traits and talents, positive relationships, and the role of families, workplaces, schools, and geographical places in the good life. I highly recommend this book, and I will read it again and again. Sincere thanks to Christopher Peterson for his gift to the world." -Michael Hogan, PsycCRITIQUES
