Tired of self-help snake oil? Had enough of pop psychology “gurus” who do little more than repeat the same old clichés and self-improvement urban legends? Then check out Psychological Foundations of Success.

This book summarizes the cutting-edge research being conducted in the field of “positive psychology” – the scientific study of happy, successful, highly-achieving people. Although based on solid science, the book offers a practical, five step approach for achieving more:

Step One: Vision – The Science of Figuring Out What You Really Want From Life
Step Two: Strategy – The Science of Turning Lofty Ambitions Into Consistent Action
Step Three: Belief – The Science of Minimizing FUD (Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt)
Step Four: Persistence – The Science of Drive and Determination
Step Five: Learning – The Science of Making “Course Corrections” in Life
