The Intelligent Optimist's Guide to Life
How to Find Health and Success in A World That's A Better Place Than You ThinkDownloadable Audiobook - 2014
The world isn't coming to an end, contrary to what you may have heard. But the media's near-exclusive focus on conflict and disaster means that the progress and everyday acts of brilliance taking place across the globe go unnoticed. Jurriaan Kamp shows that optimism-intelligent optimism, not a rose-colored-glasses brand of wishful thinking-is good for not only your mind but your body too. He details a whole host of health problems that can actually be linked to pessimism. Moreover, there is good reason for optimism: Kamp proves that on the whole we're living longer, becoming smarter, working less, and growing richer. Not only that, democracy is on the rise, and violence is declining.
