After not learning much from Stumbling on Happiness, I expected this to be the same, but it actually had some very good points I hadn't seen before. The example that comes to mind is this: if you ask some people to evaluate a single lecture, and ask ...more

Stumbling on Happiness by Daniel Todd Gilbert

As a book, I didn't expect this to have cutting-edge research. As a popular book, I didn't expect it to be dry and technical.

Liberal Fascism by Jonah Goldberg
Rate this book
