CWB Senior Scientist Dr. Todd Kashdan's Latest Book on Kindle

by Whitney Hopler, Communications Coordinator


Enjoy CWB Senior Scientist Dr. Todd Kashdan’s latest book The Upside of Your Dark Side: Why Being Your Whole Self – Not Just Your “Good” Self – Drives Success and Fulfillment this last week of July in’s Kindle format for a special promotional price of only $1.99.

The Upside of Your Dark Side, which Kashdan wrote with Dr. Robert Biswas-Diener, features insights from those two experts in positive psychology about the importance of emotional agility. Rather than tuning out the negative emotions we experience and trying to focus only on positive feelings, we can develop stronger well-being from learning what our negative emotions are trying to tell us. As the book’s description says, “Anger makes us creative, selfishness makes us brave, and guilt is a powerful motivator. The real key to success lies in emotional agility.”
