In a thirty-year study, Martin Seligman and his colleagues discovered the link between pessimism - dwelling on the most catastrophic cause of any setback - and depression. Seligman shows adults how to teach children the skills of optimism that can help them combat depression, achieve more on the playing field and at school, and improve their physical health.
