Using the model of character strengths and virtues from Positive Psychology, Niemiec and Wedding have developed an outstanding way to view movies and learn about your strengths and virtues. There are two or three outstanding parts of the book that I would recommend to anyone interested in personal development. First, they cover every one of the strengths and virtues. Many times there is a particular strength like forgiveness or love or spirituality that you really can't see as having a place in your development.

This is absolutely a must read book if you love movies, want to learn about character strength, positive psychology or simply enjoy and understand your life and life of others. I personally use this as a guide before I watch any movie. Actually I pick movies from this book (1,500 movies) knowing that I will enjoy and learn from it. It is a rear combination of great reading and scientifically proven research that you cannot find elsewhere. An outstanding resource for those studying positive psychology and a great book for movie lovers and people who simply want to increase their well being, become happier and live more meaningful life.

It's great to have a book that combines a fascination with movies with an understanding of positive psychology. This adds yet another layer to the depth of what a person can experience while watching movies. Also, this book could be somewhat inspirational; just choose an emotion to explore and then watch the corresponding movies.
