Great Text for Introductory Course in Positive Psychology
on December 18, 2006
I recently used this textbook in teaching an undergraduate course in positive psychology. The authors are able to cover a range of topics in a manner that is both accessible and understandable. Use of the personal mini-experiments added a reflective component that is often missing in many undergraduate level courses. Feedback from the class on the choice of text was very positive with many students commenting on how enjoyable it was to read. I will be teaching this course again next year and will definitely use this book again.
Overall, the book is well organized and written in a language that is accessible to students at a range of levels.
