Dr. Alex Linley is a world authority on positive psychology and its applications, particularly strengths approaches. He is the Founding Director of the Centre of Applied Positive Psychology. Through his consulting work, he applies strengths to people management practices across the employee life cycle with organisations spanning the public and private sectors. He has written, co-written, or edited more than 130 research papers and book chapters, and six books, including Positive Psychology in Practice (Wiley, 2004), Average to A+: Realising Strengths in Yourself and Others (CAPP Press, 2008) and the Oxford Handbook of Positive Psychology and Work (Oxford University Press, 2009). Alex has served as Associate Editor of the Journal of Positive Psychology and the Encyclopedia of Positive Psychology (Blackwell, 2009), and is currently Co-Editor of the International Coaching Psychology Review.

If you are even the least bit intrigued by positive psychology and strengths-based thinking, this book is a must-have. Linley deepens the rationale for the strengths approach and provides a tremendous number of references to tools, methods and experts on this topic. Packed with information yet easy-to-digest, this book is a very valuable follow-up to current best-sellers on this topic. Business leaders ... parents ... coaches ... psychologists ... philanthropists -- everyone can maximize their "strengthspotting" potential through Linley's generous thinking in this book.A" If you want to experience life on a whole new level, and you want to be able to help others to experience this too, Average to A+ is the book for you. In particular I was really impressed (blown away actually!) by how Dr Alex Linley made SO MUCH cutting edge scientific research into such an EASY-to-read book FULL of practical inspiration for life. This is clearly evidence of Dr Linley's strengths in action! I highly recommend this book.A"
