ReWe predict the future based on past memoriesBUT our past memories are falliable we tend to fill in details in our memories we remember things not as they actually happened but as we think they happened when we think about them in the futureAND we predict poorly because1 we fill in details that will never come to pass we are optimi Is it just me or is the author of this book unusually cocky in his writing style Gilbert reiterates a bunch of basic ideas that any normal reasonably intelligent person should already have arrived at like you shouldn t judge another person s life without all of the facts and wow things never turn out uite how you plan them and then acts like he s discovered a new planet His tone is one of an utterly brilliant professor talking down to his idiotic simple students I was actually mildly offended by this book and as you can probably tell by the rest of my selections I am not asily offended I m happy to read all about views I disagree with just don t treat me like an idiot This book just wasted my time I was so infuriated with it that my husband had to remind me that it s just a book and I could put it down if it was so bad but I couldn t stop because it just got worse and worse Even the forward to the book with acknowledgements is cocky beyond belief Gilbert first says Actually I wrote this book all by myself without any help before acknowledging that he borrowed lots from his students research What Unbelievable This is another one of those books like Blink or Outliers where an author applies science in an unorthodox way flings a bunch of interesting anecdotes and studies at you and pretends to draw conclusions than are actually warrented You can tell because the cover is completely white with a single xtra shiny object slightly off center and the title in a trendy modernist colorI ll give Gilbert this he s an unusually witty writer I literally laughed out loud throughout this book But I think in the nd it s fluff in one ar and right out the other I m still not sure what I ve actually absorbedGilbert s basic thesis boils down to the fact that the trait that lets us build civilizations imagination constantly deludes us into misjudging what will make us happy Which is good for civilization building without it we d probably be scratching our privates in a jungle with the bonobos But since it s not something we can turn off or are willing to it means we ll all spend our lives chasing phantoms trying to please a future self who will wonder what we were thinkingI don t recall any glaring flaws in his argument although there s not much that can asily be used to refute it here If there s research counter to his results it s not like I know what it is For once there are no sweeping pronouncements made he pretty much shrugs his shoulders and says that it s human nature to be a little bit delusional and there s really nothing to it Kind of refreshing actually When we imagine future circumstances we fill in details that won t really come to pass and leave out details that will When we imagine future feelings we find it impossible to ignore what we are feeling now and impossible to recognize how we will think about the things that happen laterForgive my rather meh response to this book And it was a very bored response But that isn t the book s fault it s my faultIf you have a background in psychology a degree in psychology or work in the field of psychology this book will be old hat to you Gilbert presents these studies and Marrying Winterborne (The Ravenels, experiments and psychological insights that will be stunning and revolutionary to anyone who is uneducated in psychology but to someone who has been trained in psychology there is absolutely nothing new to offer hereThis is NOT a self help book I know it looks like a self help book and is titled as a self help book but it is really a psychology book This book will NOT help you be any happier in your life Gilbert s whole main point is that your brain acts and reacts in ways that are beyond your control Even when you are told about them and warned about them you can t stop them So no self help here Instead this is a look into psychology and a bit of neuroscience but only the most minuscule bitGilbert discusses things like resiliency selective memory andxpectations about the future I really Kiss of Surrender (Deadly Angels, enjoy psychology books but I felt this one did not offer anything new to anyone with a psychological degree orducation If you DO NOT have training in psychology I would recommend this book It will be interesting to you Gilbert makes some great points and he is funny I mean actually very amusing and lighthearted And you will learn some psych basics without boring texts or going to classBut if you ARE someone with a psych background skip this you will be bored out of your skull and Gilbert will just be telling you what you already knowRecommendations for people

A wickedly funny deeply Damned (Witch Hunt educating andye opening book I ll continue to fool myself that I know what I m doing feeling seeing and thinking but thanks to this book I hope that I ll increase the basic level of happiness to which all people seem to revert to The Bluebird Bet (Welcome to Tall Pines eventually I immenselynjoyed the brilliant writing and the wit of the author which definitely added to the pleasure of reading this book Despite the third word in the title this is not an instruction manual that will tell you anything useful about how to be happy Instead this is a book that describes what science has to tell us about how and how well the human brain can imagine its own future and about how and how well it can p Note the title reads Stumbling On Happiness not Stumbling Onto Happiness Thus Daniel Gilbert s book does not go into self help Rather it delineates the many Hot-Blooded Italians errors we humans make when solidifying decisions and how our minds trick us into choosing things that might I just finished Daniel Gilbert s new book and it s highly recommended Next time in Cambridge I ll be asking him to join me at Grafton Street for a Guinness you ll get this if you read the bookHe uses one of the most humorous and accessible non fiction science related writing styles toxplain a whole genre of psychological psychiatric and philosophical research His basic message is that we are crap at remembering our past happiness and also terrible at making decisions that would increase our future happiness His advice trust the testimony of others when deciding what choices to makeHere are some choice bits from the book but again I recommend you take the time to Mlynowski Teen Thriller enjoy it for yourself When we ask kids what they want to be when they grow up they generally come up with things like the candy guy or a tree climber We chuckle because the odds that the child willver become the candy guy or a tree climber are vanishingly smallBut notice that while these are the wrong answers to our uestion they are the right answers to another uestion namely What do you want to be now At some point between our high chairs and our rocking chairs we learn about later When we think of Reggie events in the distant past or distant future we tend to think abstractly about why they happened or will happen but when we think ofvents in the near past or near future we tend to think concretely about how they happened or will happen The point here is that we generally do not sit down with a sheet of paper and start logically listing te pros and cons of the future Switchback events we are contemplating but rather we contemplate them by simulating thosevents in our imaginations and then noting our Marrying Marcus (Virgin Brides, emotional reactions to that simulation Just as imagination previews objects so does it prefeelvents Among life s cruelest truths is this one wonderful things are Belonging (Temptation, especially

not necessarily make individuals happy but it does serve the needs of an conomy which serves the needs of a stable society which serves as a network for the propagation of delusional beliefs about happiness and wealth April 2007 first impression So far this book is witty Economies and Cultures eye opening and really fun Also really well researched He references Daniel C Dennett in the first five pages so how could I not love itMay 2007 upon completion Update Ultimately I decided to give this book three stars because I believe that it is a ballsy and wellxecuted attempt to take on an impossibly difficult problem happiness that s a biggie For the most part I admire Gilbert s methods though they ALL become incredibly frustrating somewhere around page 200 The book is witty incredibly well researched and Gilbert is mostly unwilling to xtrapolate the massive amounts of data he compiles into proscriptive solutions for finding happiness Fortunately these make the book

Ne of a young man with one of those far away looks in his yes The photo in the poster was The Road to Einsteins Relativity extreme close up and thexpression on the young man s face was that which I believe only comes from religious cstasy or a particularly transporting bowel movement In bold type under this young man s face was the single word Happiness Below this in smaller type was Transcendental Meditation I figured we were talking religion rather than laxative in this particular case I remember thinking when I first saw this poster that if THAT is happiness then I would rather be un happy or perhaps that should be non happy Hard to sayThis book made me happy At times it made me use the laugh I generally only reserve for a Wodehouse Wooster novel The guy who wrote 50 Psychology Classics got me onto him by comparing him to Bryson Actually Bryson can be a little surreal in his humour particularly in Notes from a Big Country but I still LOL dPremise of the book Why is it that we prove to be remarkably hopeless at judging what later versions of ourselves will like or want We marry people we think we will be happy with in old age only to toss them in mid life We study to be idealists and philosophers only to Nighttime Sweethearts end up cynical readers of psychology Why are we so hopeless at working out what will make us happyThe answer this book provides isn t going to win it the Dr Phil Put a Smile on Your Dial Award for best self help book But it might just help you to understand why we tend to be unimpressive at knowing what is going to make us happyThis really is a wonderful book The discussion on conjoined twins saying they are happy and our normal responses to hearing this the poor wee things they can t know any better imagine them thinking they are happy made me cringe as only a patronising overstatement of what I was thinking myself can do About 10 years ago I went to a high school reunion I knew it would be a mistake and I wasn t disappointed What was interesting was that I ve always seen myself as uite different fromveryone I went to school with But that afternoon I found I was as bland Maternity Bride (Silhouette Desire everybodylse Everyone it seemed had two kids lived within 5 kilometres of school and worked in the city Whatever details separated us what united us seemed much obvious I ve never felt like a cog in a machineBut I walked out of there and went back to believing I m an individual and remained contented in my own non identity with those around me This book has had much the same Safe in My Arms effect as that high school reunion In fact the lesson of this book is that we are much likeveryone Presunta colpevole else than we like to imagine and it is this disinclination to admit to it that is one of the major reasons why we are so terrible at predicting what futurevents will be like for usFor Poisoned Secrets (Murder and Mayhem example tomorrow you are going to go blind how do you think you are going to feel I guess the words Not particularly delighted don t uite cover it But this book points out that we generally thing we are going to feel infinitely worse than we actuallynd up feeling We think we would rather be dead whereas people who Safe Words end up blind generally don tnd up killing themselves over it And if we underestimate how unhappy we will be if bad things happen to us we also overestimate how happy we will be when good things happen to usThis book doesn t really offer any answers if you are looking for the answer to the uestion what is happiness you will probably have to turn to your guru of choice What this book does do is show how we are remarkably consistent at fooling ourselves in ways that have negative His To Claim (McBain Brothers Alpha, effects on our happiness and shows some ways we may be able to take controlI don t want to spoil this for you but the bit about the people in the old people s home who had control over when young visitors would come see them was one of the saddest things I ve read in a long time Is there anything sadder than our unintended conseuences when they cause infinite harm to others When but I really didn t mean it just doesn t sate our despairIf I have a preference for people it is for people who make me laugh It is a sad fact that I m likely to think someone is on the money if they also make me smile Of course there probably is no relationship at all between the worth of an argument and how often the writer makes me smile but you ll never convince me of that This is a wonderful book and well worth reading I ve started to watch the You Tube Video Richard attached it looks great but it is too late for me now There will be time for such a word Oh and that is the other reason why I loved this book Each chapter starts with a remarkably apt uote from Shakespeare Got to lov This is pretty much the opposite of a self help book Instead of telling you how you can be happier Harvard Psychology professor Gilbert talks about why we are so bad at predicting what will make us happy in the first place Gilbert is a smooth andntertaining writer and he does a good job of The Black Sheeps Baby (Into The Heartland) (Into The Heartland) (Silhouette Intimate Moments, explaining in detail the cognitiverrors we make in trying to predict our future happiness For those who hope to gain some practical value from the book Gilbert also outlines one techniue that has been ffective in predicting future happiness but then goes on to discuss the reason why the vast majority of humans won t use it Still I
