    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.

    Terril Lowe says: "Great Book!"
    "Stumbling into happiness"
    Overall

    An interesting book that goes into the science behind what we interpret as happiness and several inaccuracies that can lead us into misinterpreting what we're remembering as happiness and/or what we expect from the future.

    A very comical and entertaining journey that won't necessarily give you the "ah-ha" that's what I need to do to stumble into happiness, but instead will give you insight into how our emotions work and how we interpret our emotions aka happiness.

    The author is well spoken, well read, and very knowledgeable as you would expect from a Harvard professor.

  • The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming (and Environmentalism)

    The big media have spoken on the question of global warming, and the debate is officially over. "Be afraid, be very afraid", warns Time magazine. But have Al Gore and his environmentalist allies really proven their case? Not even close, says Christopher C. Horner.

    Michael says: "Must Read"
    "A shocking must-listen"
    Overall

    Ignore those reviews trashing this book... it meticuliously deconstructs the myths that we've been exposed to over the years on Global Warming (hint... it's not Global and we're no longer warming) and exposes the movement for what it really is... an attempted foot-hold for world governance crafted by the Europeans and hords of mislead/underinformed people over here that'll destroy our vitality, resilience, and ability to make real difference on human suffering.

    Children desperately want to become adults, and they learn how from what they see around them. Parents have enormous power to influence their children's lives and directions. By recognizing and harnessing that power, they can help kids develop the sense of belonging, individual identity, self-worth, and competency they want and need to become strong, effective adults.

    Overall

    Best nuggets of info from this book are not to be an authoritarian, teach financial responsibility with allowances divided into spend, save, and invest... and finally to just tell your kids you love them.

    In this business fable, meet Harold, an HR director so overwhelmed by e-mail he feels like a hamster on a wheel. Just in time, Harold meets a coach, a leading expert on e-mail efficiency and etiquette with a simple system that helps Harold eliminate needless e-mails, write better messages, and file and find information in a flash. He gets immediate results and reclaims his life.

    Stephen says: "just ok"

    Overall

    While there may be some salvageable hints in this book, the theme of the idealistic student in the body of a hamster gets very annoying through the course of this book.

    "oh, if only 10 years ago"
    Overall

    Fantastic book. If only I had it 10 years ago, but fear not, the concepts apply to a 27 year old or a 57 year old. I can't wait to start on the concepts! Buy this, listen to this, recommend this, and execute this!
