Authentic Happiness:Using the New Positive Psychology to Realize Your Potential for Lasting Fulfillment, by Martin E. P. Seligman, Ph.D.

by Bonnie Hovel 20. May 2010 17:46


Identifying our strengths and how to better incorporate them into our lives may be the answer to finding more lasting happiness.  That is the thesis of Dr. Martin Seligman, the author of Authentic Happiness A former president of the American Psychological Association and a best-selling author, Seligman has written a thought-provoking scientific study of the subjective concept of happiness.  He successfully argues for the importance of “positive psychology,” a field he pioneered, which focuses on the qualities of happiness rather than on pathology and mental illness.  In the first part of the book, he defines “happiness”, not an easy task in itself.  To achieve long-term, substantial happiness, he believes we must pursue activities in line with our own personal strengths.

 Throughout the book are questionnaires the reader can complete to assess personal traits, such as "Optimism About the Future" and "Your Signature Strengths".  These are also available without charge if you register on the author’s website Authentic Happiness website.  This is a user-friendly method of receiving immediate feedback which I found helpful in applying the book’s concepts to my own life.  I recommend the VIA Signature Strengths assessment, whether or not you read the book. 


I found one of the most interesting aspects of the book to be Part II: Strength and Virtue.  Through study and research, Seligman selected six major categories of strengths and virtues that are valued in nearly every culture and that are pliable:

1.  Wisdom and knowledge

2.  Courage

3.  Love and humanity

4.  Justice

5.  Temperance

6.  Spirituality and transcendence


Under each of these categories are more specific strengths, totaling 24.  If you take the assessment, you will receive a description of your own top three to five.  I was surprised to learn that one of mine is "Appreciation of Beauty".  It had not occurred to me that this trait does not belong to everyone.  To me, it confirms the theory that we sometimes downplay the importance of that which comes naturally to us.


I highly recommend Authentic Happiness to anyone interested in personal development and fulfillment.

I'll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

Between me and my husband we've owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I've settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

If you're still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you'll know which is right for you.

Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It's very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod's. It works well, but isn't as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that's not an issue, but if you're planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod's larger screen and better browser may be important.

The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it'll do even better in those areas, but for now it's a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod's strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass' favor.

All you should do will be to enter your own travel details and you can view the plans side-by-side.
