    A smart and funny book by a prominent Harvard psychologist, which uses groundbreaking research and (often hilarious) anecdotes to show us why we're so lousy at predicting what will make us happy, and what we can do about it.

    Overall

    Phenomal book! A brilliant, lucid, and humble treatise on the limitations of the mind. Professor Gilbert's scientific and witty presentation gives me a huge amount of confidence in the veracity of his work. Dr. Gilbert shatters the myth that our brain is a flawless untapped supercomputer that remembers everything and stores everything we experience if only we can access it. Understanding the inherent limitations that Gilbert outlines is the first step to doing a better job finding more happiness in our lives.

    Surprisingly Gilbert gives no prescription for being more happy. Even though he states this clearly at the beginning, my flawed mind was expecting some tips on "how to" be more happy. I respect this academic approach and this is NOT a self-help book.

    Bravo!
