"This is an excellent book on a unique approach to psychology. The international authorship helps readers see positive pyschology from many different vantage points. The book ends on a helpful note, talking about the importance of the work of therapists in helping clients and families find meaning and happiness-- a point everyone can agree on."--Doody's Health Sciences Review, a 4-star review!
