You may be a pessimist and not know it. But you absolutely need to know where you stand on the pessimism and optimism scale. This book will not only tell you how pessimistic you are but it will help you understand the huge cost of pessimism in your life and how to learn to control and overcome pessimistic tendencies. A fun read, rich with experiments and studies to illustrate and prove his points. Martin Seligman has written a masterpiece.

Great help if you know you're struggling with "Learned Helplessness" that was learned in childhood.

This is an interesting book, which leans heavily (it seems to me) on the work of Albert Ellis. I was pleased to see that clinical studies support Ellis's principles.

This is more scientific than Self Help.

I like the messaging about inner thought process and its effect on reality, but in practice positive thinking can't breed success...it can only minimize how much you get in your own way. The book is well written but IMHO theory is flawed. Author goes too far into tying outcomes to proof of theory.

Helped me help my teenager - and she valued the insight and advise. I will re-read again. Packed with easy to implement strategies.
