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.
