Useful Book: Stumbling on Happiness
Stumbling on Happiness
An interesting and well-researched look into what happiness is and how our minds work in terms of happiness, expectation, memories, and the like. I feel that Gilbert downplays the impact we can have on our own happiness, insofar his book is a semi-fatalistic look at the way things are for people, not really a look at how we can use this information to better our lives. Of course, that’s a legitimate way to write a book, just not my favorite approach. Regardless, it’s intelligent, well-researched, and well-written.
