I was able to read an early draft and can say it´s a fasninating read – not only for people interested in Positive Psychology, but also in psychology and science in general. Scott Barry Kaufman, a former co-worker at the Penn Positive Psychology Center has written a candid and entensive review for Scientific American. Enjoy!

Once I´ll reach x (…put in one of your personal or professional goals…) I´ll be happy. This is a popular equation many people believe in. It´s promoted by a lot of self-help books as well.
