Listening to: from the library

Stumbling on Happiness
by Daniel Gilbert (narrator)
-Psychology, Science
Amazon | Goodreads

Bringing to life scientific research in psychology, cognitive neuroscience, philosophy, and behavioral economics, this bestselling book 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.

• Why are lovers quicker to forgive their partners for infidelity than for leaving dirty dishes in the sink?

• Why will sighted people pay more to avoid going blind than blind people will pay to regain their sight?

• Why do dining companions insist on ordering different meals instead of getting what they really want?

• Why do pigeons seem to have such excellent aim; why can’t we remember one song while listening to another; and why does the line at the grocery store always slow down the moment we join it?

In this brilliant, witty, and accessible book, renowned 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. With penetrating insight and sparkling prose, Gilbert explains why we seem to know so little about the hearts and minds of the people we are about to become.



Other doings:


=====> Along with organizing plans for the new year, I am experimenting with a daily journal that will be mostly visual in comic book format.

  1. I have a book journal for keeping my scribbled book review notes in and a lovely journal with sections for book records, book lists, favourite books, quotes etc...I love it! I got a Game of Thrones Stark journal though I haven't decided what to use it for. Have fun with your journal!

  5. While none of these are familiar to me, the titles sound good & will check them out on Amazon. Also, Stumbling on Happiness is a very cool pick; so much we've learned and undoubtedly more to discover about the human psyche!!

  6. I received a few books for Christmas which are on my TBR shelf at home. I still have a couple of library books out though so won't be getting to the new ones just yet. I use Goodreads to keep track of what I've read and also make written notes but not in a journal as nice looking as yours.
