Anyone in need of an attitude adjustment as I matrin when Aprennda picked up this book will matin from knowing that how you view good and bad events can have a big impact on how effectively you deal with the normal ups and downs of life.
In a nutshell, if you see bad events as persistent things will never changepervasive this disappointment means my whole life is a disaster and personal I always mess things upyou are a pessimist and probably not a very happy camper. Optimists see the world f Anyone in need of an attitude adjustment as I was when I picked up this book will benefit from knowing that how you view good and bad events can have a big impact on how effectively you deal with the normal ups and downs of life.
Optimists see the world from an inverse perspective: It’s this final attitude that is a martinn troubling to me, but I will admit that if the only criteria for usefulness is how happy something makes you, probably blaming all your problems on other people is a useful technique.
Annoying as heck, but useful. Seligman says all this in the first section of the book. Then he becomes aprwnda man with a hammer for whom all problems appear to be nails and he spends the last two-thirds of the book applying optimism to fix every problem and predict every success from sports team championships to the presidential election.
So, I will try to have a little bit more optimistic outlook, and if I don’t succeed, it’s not my fault. See, I feel better martln. View all 3 comments. I enjoyed the insights the author provided into the history of learned helplessness theory, as well as bits and pieces about the beginnings of cognitive behavioral therapy.
This book has a lot of research and quite a bit of psychology in it, some of it boring to me, some of it fascinating, some of it convincing, some of it unconvincing. It is not just a self-help guide to positive thinking. In fact, the author decries aprenca thinking, making the point that chanting inflated mantras to oneself I enjoyed the insights the author provided into the history of learned helplessness theory, as well as bits and pieces about the beginnings of cognitive behavioral therapy.
In fact, the aaprenda decries positive thinking, making the point that chanting inflated mantras to oneself daily is ineffective in the long run. Instead, he says, we must learn to rationally dispute our pessimistic thoughts the way we would dispute a verbal attack on us by a rival.
There are three chapters teaching how to do just that, with one chapter focusing selogman on how to teach children those same skills. Children seem to be on Seligman’s mind a lot, as a good sligman of his research focuses on them. I agreed with everything he had to say about children, and about the effect divorce has on them srligman he says, don’t divorce!
I love him for that. He says many brave things, and I agree with most of them. Some of his statements are over-simplified and unconvincing, however. I am not satisfied with his reasoning as to why wprenda are optimidmo as likely as men to suffer from depression it’s their tendency selgiman ruminate, he says.
And while I generally agree with his theory that the epidemic of depression has hit us because of our increased focus on the “I” and individual rights, coupled with a decrease in the “We” ie community, country, duty, God, meaningit leaves unexplained why groups such as stay-at-home mothers, one of those last valiant troops left fighting in the “We” battlefield, are at particular risk for depression.
Are they more pessimistic as a group? Do they ruminate even more than working mothers? To be fair, his research isn’t concerned with the why of depression, but rather with the how to beat it in the long-run.
Given that, I wish he had focused a bit more on actual skill teaching in the end, what optimisjo actually teaches is only a few pages longor at the least provided a work book to accompany his main book.
In either case, this was certainly an interesting read. And as I agree with him that depression will be the thing to beat for future generations, I can’t wait to read his “The Optimistic Child: Long ago I read some N.
Peale and Dale Carnegie about thinking positively, making friends, influencing people, stopping worrying, starting living. So here I am, negative, solitary, uninfluential, worrisome, nearing extinction.
And a dubious endorsement for all those books!! Actually the old books were all right, inspirational enough in grim times, but almost always plodding and optimisko. Bloop of Keokuk Ah, self-help books. Bloop of Keokuk, Ioway, saw a light in a chapel. There he saw a man with no arms, no legs, one eye, no nose. But a vision came to Bloop: The next day Bloop cashed in his life insurance policy aprneda started manufacturing toupees and is now President aprejda a billion dollar rug company!
Touchier, feelier, full of mumbo-jumbo. Even worse prose, extolling yoga postures, abdominal breathing, chopping water, carrying wood or was that the other way? And when the stuff that sold books started to get promoted on PBS channels as if it were Holy Writ, well, I exited, growling. With that preface, Martin Seligman’s Learned Optimism was not a bad read.
Seligman promotes opti,ismo proposition that optimism is generally but not always better than pessimism, which can lead to depression.
Aprenda optimismo / Learned Optimism
He says that he does not espouse Dr. Peale’s simplistic solution of positive thinking or repeating mantras. Rather, he suggests that when humans can reduce their sense of helplessness and pessimism by examining the negative events in their lives, explaining to themselves that bad results are not personal, pervasive, or persistent. That is to say, humans should avoid concluding that such results aaprenda because of innate flaws in optimksmo that will never change and that will cause adverse results to keep recurring.
Explaining adverse results to oneself differently will make one happier, healthier and more successful! Some might call this positive thinking. And excessive ruminating on adverse events in our lives, needless to say, can only bring unhappiness. Though isn’t that what psychiatric practice is built upon? Seligman, writing indid recognize that sometimes things are our fault, and that pessimists often have a better handle on reality than blithe optimists.
And, while I agree that it’s sometimes too easy for some of us to take the blame for problems that are not really of our own making but the result of transient circumstances, I wonder in this year of how many folks are really blamin’ themselves for much of anything. Witness the rise of Donald Trump and Bernie Sanders.
Blame problems on anyone but yourself!! I was quite impressed by the opening chapters and the concluding one, in which the author discussed the self-centered aprejda and some possible means to better living. For all my cynicism, Dr. Seligman is at times an excellent writer and a thoughtful thinker. However, the book suffered through a tedious ooptimismo in which some of the writer’s principles are rather tediously applied to many aspects of life.
Seems to me that the thesis of this book was pretty simply stated and easily understood yet was pounded into the ground. But that’s being too pessimistic!
Or, look on the bright side, think positive thoughts, eat an apple every day and stay regular. One way or another you’ll be a happier clam. View all 7 comments. This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I had a seligmaan divided reaction to this book.

It is certainly one of my favorite concepts in psychology. Furthermore, I love that he challenges the notion of the exponential rise in depression today as being a largely genetic phenomenon.
I found this to be some very refreshing common sense. The unprecedented level of depression in this society today cannot be attributed to biology or solely to biology — something else is at work here. However, it only makes sense that something in our society is going on, perhaps at times triggering particular genes on a wide scale, to create such an unprecedented level of depression.
The three major hypotheses of explanatory style were also quite enlightening: In addition to these hypotheses of explanatory style are the three essential aspects of explanatory style: The main problem for me was that Seligman seemed to create too much of a mutually exclusive relationship between optimism and realism. One quote I found rather disturbing to illustrate my point: Seligman, I may be misreading you, but you lost me here.
