Abstract: In the preface to this volume Martin Seligman notes that ‘the scientific psychological literature of the 20th century is littered with well-done analytic science that applied to nothing at all, and this is a fate positive psychology must avoid.’ Alex Linley and Stephen Joseph in their volume Positive Psychology Practice have taken an important step in diverting positive psychology from this undesirable fate. They have edited a compendium of scholarly chapters on practical applications of the science of positive psychology to important social issues.
