Stumbling on HappinessBook - 2006
"In this book, Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert describes the foibles of imagination and illusions of foresight that cause each of us to misconceive our tomorrows and misestimate our satisfactions. Bringing to life the latest scientific research in psychology, cognitive science, philosophy, and behavioral economics, Gilbert reveals what scientists have discovered about the uniquely human ability to imagine the future, and about our capacity to predict how much we will like it when we get there."--BOOK JACKET.
