No matter where you are in life--searching for happiness, working toward a goal, longing for a better relationship, or feeling content and settled--focusing on your character strengths adds a whole new dimension. Recent research shows that when you understand and activate your positive personality traits, you become more resilient, manage stress better, and find greater fulfillment in life.

In The Power of Character Strengths: Appreciate and Ignite Your Positive Personality, you'll be expertly guided by leading authorities through your 24 strengths. You'll soon see all the ways these strengths are your best-kept secret for boosting your well-being. Discover how to appreciate what's best in you and champion strengths in the people you care about most.

As a bonus, you'll practice putting your strengths into action with Strengths Builder, an easy-to-learn, four-step, research-backed program.

Your adventure lies ahead, and The Power of Character Strengths is your must-have resource for building your best life!


Finally, Ryan Niemiec and Bob McGrath--who have been on the frontlines of our understanding of how to nurture the best within us--wrote this much-needed book! This is the most scientifically valid and useful book on character strengths to date. The focus on 24 character strengths is highly accessible and of benefit for anyone--young, old, professional, self-employed, unemployed, student, or military--who wants to better understand their potential and learn concrete strategies to bring out the best in themselves and others.
--Scott Barry Kaufman, Ph.D., Author of Ungifted: Intelligence Redefined and Co-Author of Wired to Create: Unraveling the Mysteries of the Creative Mind

Living by our signature strengths is the only way to live, and this book contains everything one could need to do just that.
