was interested in this book because of Sunstein; I also find the topic of Happiness economics to be fascinating. This "book" was really just a series of papers that were presented at a conference. Some better than others, in addition to the fact that not all of them really fit. As it wasn't a real book, not surprising to find out that there isn't a real flow.

Sunstein's paper was on damages. An important topic, but nothing new or fascinating so that was a bit disappointing for me.
