About two-thirds of this book is a psychological discussion of pessimism, optimism, learned helplessness (giving up because you feel unable to change things), explanatory style (how you habitually explain to yourself why events happen), and depression, and how these affect success, health, and quality of life. Seligman supports his points with animal research and human cases. He includes tests for you and your child--whose achievement may be related more to his or her level of optimism/pessimism than ability. The final chapters teach the skills of changing from pessimism to optimism, with worksheet pages to guide you and your child. --Joan Price --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
Most "self-help" books have anecdotal evidence at best to support their hypotheses.
Learned Optimism: How to Change Your Mind and Your Life by Martin E. P. Seligman, is a book that will help you overcome your pessimistic lifestyle.
I highly recommend this book to anyone dealing with their own emotional issues or helping others with their own.
