It was working my way back through Brené Brown’s work that led me here ( See Rising Strong (Part 1 & Part 2), Daring Greatly, and The Gifts of Imperfection). In The Gifts of Imperfection, she referenced Snyder’s work in The Psychology of Hope to explain how hope is not an emotion, but is instead a thought process. This was a different perspective and ultimately led me to wanting to know more. I’m glad that I dug in deeper.

I saw a reference to this book somewhere in my readings about hope/spirituality/fascism, and totally expected something different than what this book was actually about. It's not a bad book (probably deserves more than 2 stars), but it's way more about goal-setting and -reaching than it is about the kind of hope that I was thinking of. The only reason I skimmed it was because I interlibrary-loaned it and felt guilty not reading it at all.
