Ellen Langer conducted research on the mind for twelve years in the department of psychology at Harvard and for fifteen years at Yale. She discusses her research on mindfulness and mindlessness as it relates to health, aging, work, discrimination, and every day living. Although the book reads a bit like a doctoral dissertation, it challenges the reader to analyze many things: why first impressions are often faulty; how we can better relate to the elderly; how managers can reduce burnout in the workplace; and, how we can better enjoy every day life.
