The concept of psychological capital was new to me until I found this book. I read all the material available on the Amazon's website and decided to buy it. The book arrived within the expected period and in excelent conditions. The application of concepts from positive psychology to the realm of work is not new, as studies on commitment, for instance, have shown. However, the combination of hope, optimism, self-efficacy and resilience makes the book special and applicable to several work-related contexts. It also allows some bridges between Psychology, Sociology and Economics, as psychological capital is an individual characteristic that changes the way in which one interacts with the resources (or lack of resources) in one's environment.

Very interesting subject, but not much insight in the book.

It is overloaded with an extreme amount of references, not only at the end of each chapter, which is ok, yet absurd (up to 300 references after a 10 page chapter)

Worse: the text itself is interrupted with an extreme amount of references, which makes the text hard to read.

This book will expose you to the concept of PsyCap. It also offers a lot of information on the research behind PsyCap.
