Excellent! There was some common sense here, but plenty of new data and tools anyone can use in both their personal and professional life. A must for every human who wants to get the most out of life.

I truly felt like I was in a classroom learning all the material! I greatly appreciated all of the real-world applications and hearing all of the different perspectives throughout each week and topic!

The thinking trap part could benefit from teaching metacognitive methods.

I had hoped that the course focuses a bit more on mindfulness, but it was just a few minutes in which mindfulness was talked about which is a shame because resilience is very close connected to mindfulness. It was rather spoken 20 times about all of the bad stories which had happened to some people and how they learnt from it, that doesnt really give me skills, watching twenty different people over and over again talking about their bad life story.

I would not recommend it. I chose to not get a certificate and the administration locked me out of the tests and some very valid information. What I did learn was very interesting skills that everyone could benefit. If you do not purchase the certificate then it is not worth learning half of the information. It was not a good experience for me. I've taken several classes on coursera and this is one that was not enjoyable.
