    Applying cutting-edge research in the field of positive psychology - the scientific principles taught in his wildly popular course at Harvard University - Ben-Shahar takes us off the impossible pursuit of perfection and directs us to the way to happiness, richness, and true fulfillment. He shows us the freedom derived from not trying to do it all right all the time and the real lessons that failure and painful emotions can teach us.

    Overall

    Not exactly a spellbinder. Not that you would expect that from a book of this type. Main thesis is that there are perfectionists and optimalists. Perfectionists are never satisfied with themselves or anyone else. Optimalists accept reality and make the best of what they have. They can live with "good enough" and always look at the glass as half full. I'm glad I listened to the audio version because I would never have gotten through the book. Too many quotes and citations, does this author have any original ideas? This book was neither perfect nor optimal. I suggest looking at other self enhancement titles.
