Reviews

"Savoring: A New Model of Positive Experience is a fascinating hybrid of a book-part reflection, part theory, part survey results; it contains checklists, data, statistical tables interspersed with poetry, and diary entries." - Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, PsycCRITIQUES "The work was a pleasure to read, and certainly got me thinking about savoring experiences of my own." - David G. Myers, Ph.D. Hope College "The book supplies something that no other book does-a compendium of new and scholarly ideas on how to extract the maximum enjoyment from one's life...The writing style is clear and engaging...a good scholarly book...backed by considerable data." - Kennon M. Sheldon, Ph.D. University of Missouri/Columbia "Savoring is destined in my opinion to become a classic." - Martin Seligman, Ph.D. University of Pennsylvania "This book is a must-read for those in the field of positive psychology. As is often the vase with a new field of research, the authors raise as many questions as they answer. The questions raised are the best kind: provocative, empirically testable, timely, and rich with practical applications." - Jaime L. Kurtz, The Journal of Positive Psychology, January, 2008
