Publisher's Summary

Something revolutionary has begun. Starting with gestalt and cognitive theories, psychology began to take a new course and develop more effective ways of helping people think straight and deal with the challenges of life. However, something even more revolutionary has begun. Dr. Martin Seligman, a cognitive psychologist, has developed a psychology of wellness based on the virtues. His premise is that good mental health is founded on virtuous thinking and living. He describes the virtues as core qualities that make a person truly whole. He went outside of the realm of psychology to define the virtues and looked to philosophy and religion for guidance. He relied on Plato, Aristotle, Confucius, the Hebrew Scriptures, the New Testament, St. Augustine, and St. Thomas Aquinas in listing six essential virtues: wisdom, courage, temperance, justice, transcendence, and humanity. Fr. Groeschel describes Dr. Seligman’s work in detail and shows how it offers people the best hope for a happy well-adjusted life.

Life changing accounts of virtue. A must listen

Fr. Benedict is not narrating the book word for word but rather giving a talk to a group. The final two chapters are most interesting. Overall its an excellent account of virtue.
