Description

You can acquire optimism and significantly improve your life! Are you an optimist or a pessimist? How often do you take on exciting new projects or celebrate your successes? Now psychologist Martin E.P. Seligman, one of the world's experts on motivation, shows you how to chart a new approach to living with "flexible optimism." Dr. Seligman's principles of reasoned, flexible optimism will help you rise above pessimism and the depression that accompanies negative thoughts.

Learned Optimism shows you how to:

  • Attain maximum personal achievement
  • Boost your mood - and your immune system - with healthful thoughts
  • Help your children by practicing the patterns of thought that encourage optimism at an early age
  • Change your interior dialogue and experience the astonishing positive results

What you should know.

What disappointed you about Learned Optimism?

I had not looked at how long the recording was before I downloaded it. I was under the impression that the whole book would be read. Really, it is an addition to the book that is from the author explaining how to determine if you were an optimist or a pessimist. This would not be a suitable download if you are wanting the whole book read to you.

What about Martin E. P. Seligman’s performance did you like?

Easy pace. Easy to understand and follow.

Any additional comments?

I would have really liked to have the whole book read to me.

Only 2 chapters :(

The audio is for only 2 chapters, it was a great start for a disappointing ending. I had to return it and will have to buy the book to get all the chapters.

Outdated audiobook..... try Covey instead!

I am a big fan of Martin Seligman and the field of Positive Psychology. Having read the excellent "Authentic Happiness" by Seligman, I decided to give "Learned Optimism" a try on audiobook. Not very happy with what was offered here. This is a 1991 release, all of the material is also covered in "Authentic Happiness". Also, when you are listening to audiobooks in the car like I do, scoring the optimism test while driving is not going to work!

As an advice to prospective listeners: you are much better off downloading Stephen Covey's "Seven Habits" or a more recent Seligman release.

Google the questionnaire before listening!

Take the questionnaire online and the book will help you understand each domain. The author provides good instruction on how to challenge your pessimistic mindsets.

Booklet is available on Audible

One of the main complaints mentioned by reviewer is that the test--mentioned in the first 20 minutes of the audiobook--isn't included. If you return to the book on Audible, though, you'll find the booklet available for download. So far, I'm finding the book insightful with plenty of examples AND scientific data for the skeptical.

Good Advice Clearly Stated

The author narrates this audio in a comfortable and gentle style. Dr. Seligman has condensed the insight of many years of study and experience into a short presentation. He stays on topic and does not resort to jargon or obscure scientific theorizing. If you will use the test (available free using the link on this page) and listen with an open heart and mind to his message, Dr. Seligman can help you develop a more hope filled optimistic lifestyle.

Adapted version - not same as store bought book

Quick listen. Wish I would have known prior to buying audible that it was not the same version as printed book that I have. You need a copy of the assessment questions to determine your level of optimism and pessimism. Not sure if they are available for free on website or if buying printed book is only way to get them. I will be using the techniques.

Without booklet, not worth it

This book was probably pretty good with the self-diagnostic survey, but without it, the first 30 minutes--of a 1.5 hour tape--are not so meaningful. I'm not even sure I should bother to listen to the rest. It was a waste of my book credit.

No actionable content

This is just an hour or so description of what is optimism and what is pessimism. Doesn't the author know most people already know what those words mean. The first half of the book explains the results of some test that isn't included in the audio book. This is a total waste of money.

ACTUALLY useful!

One of the best eye openers I have had! Might be that I did always analyse instead of looking at things with "these" ways of thinking or it was just the right time for me OR (:) ) that I (!) just made the best of this book and actually applied the exercises on myself..
yet I sit down and write a comment just to motivate you to buy this book - that is how good I found it! Thanks! PS: And I did even not read the full length copy?!
