Review: Learned Optimism: How to Change Your Mind and Your Life

User Review  - Stefanie Lindeman - Goodreads

The type size was so small in this book that it was difficult to read. It also felt dated and overly technical. I'm sure the information was good, but I could not get into the book the way it was written. Read full review

User Review  - Aaron Hill - Goodreads

I read an older 1990 version still in hardcover (I hate paperbacks) so a few areas were somewhat dated; however, you could easily see the foundation of what would later become the Army's Resiliency Program. Read full review
