Hey, it’s Nik with a new book summary for you!
We have some big plans forming in the background with Four Minute Books, part of which might affect how often we publish new summaries. We don’t have it figured out yet, but as soon as we do, I promise we’ll let you know – along with some exciting news on what’s coming up 🙂
For now, this week, we’ve added only one new title – but it’s a great one, written by one of psychology’s most prolific researchers. Let’s take a look!
1-Sentence-Summary: The Power Of Bad gives some excellent tips on how to become happier by identifying your tendency toward negativity and what psychology and research have to show you about how to beat it.
- For every negative experience you have, try to get at least four positive ones.
- People listen to criticism more even when it’s within a sea of compliments, but it can help them grow if done correctly.
- If you’re around someone with a bad attitude, you’re more likely to develop one yourself, so you should remove these people from your life.
If you want to become happier by learning how to remove negativity from your life, this book is for you.
That’s it, short and sweet this week!

— Marcus Aurelius (Meditations)
