I've got this in my stacks to read. It's seems to be like Stumbling Towards Happiness.

That sounds interesting--it sounds like an approach from more of a personal, self-improvement perspective, whereas PI is maybe more geared toward marketers. I'll have to take a look at STH.

STH isn't intended as self-help, I don't think, so much as very readable science. I'm a fool for this stuff about how we think and why so much of what we think is wrong.

Oh, I love that stuff, too! Always been nuts for brain science and analyzing the thought process. One of my favorite periodicals is Scientific American Mind--you ought to look at that one--it's amazing. Maybe I should have gone into psychology or some related field.

Exactly. Unfortunately, all those English lit courses in which Freaudian interpretation waas applied to fiction relly put me off.
