As a subject for college courses, positive psychology has flourished, in large part because of the availability of interesting and accessible articles by positive psychology theorists and researchers, which provide students with a first-hand look at a perspective taking form. This thoughtful collection of readings by Jenny Anderson gathers together in one place many of these articles and is a valuable resource for instructors and of course their students.
