Beliefs about what will make us happy are often wrong - a premise Harvard psychologist Dan Gilbert supports with intriguing research and explains in his brilliant and funny book. Stumbling on Happiness is not a self-help manual, but a deep and delightful explanation of what psychologists, neuroscientists and behavioral economists have discovered about why people are so poor at predicting the sources of their own satisfaction. How to determine what will make "us" happy has dramatic implications for business strategy, sales and marketing, and understanding customers.
