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.

Dr. Gilbert answers this question and others like it. This is a fascinating view of the human mind, and it's search for happiness.

  • The Secrets of the Power of Intention

In this live lecture, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer explores intention as an all-pervading force in the universe that allows the act of creation to take place. Intention, he explains, is not something you do, but an energy you're a part of. Not only do you emanate from the field of intention, but if you align yourself to it, your desires become fulfilled and you find yourself at peace.

Useful but Filled with New Age Fluff

3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 06-15-06

Dr. Dyer is a terrific speaker and motivator. I found much of what he says to be useful and applicable, although I don't necessarily agree with a lot of his New Age views of God or "Source". Much of it is fluff and not based on real science.
