A quick fyi: Tal Ben-Shahar teaches a course on Positive Psychology at Harvard. And it's apparently one of the most popular courses the university has ever offered. Above you can watch the 30 lectures in an admittedly grainy format. In 2006, NPR wrote: "Twice a week, some 900 students attend Tal Ben-Shahar's class on what he calls "how to get happy." ... His class offers research from the relatively new field of positive psychology, which focuses on what makes people happy, rather than just their pathologies."
