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.

5 out of 5 stars

I had my expectations before reading (well, listening to) this book. And not only it met them, it exceeded them by far. It's a well written and well narrated book by the author himself. The book is scientific by nature, but it's put together in simple terms, full of examples and spiced up with a delicate sense of humor. The book gives a great insight of how human mind works, and it doesn't require the reader to have any prior knowledge of psychology whatsoever. I can responsibly say that this book is a real eye-opener. Definitely a must read for anyone who is at least remotely interested in how that meatloaf we call brain works.
