The Joyless Economy: The Psychology of Human Satisfaction
Apr 12, 2008
I went to the BYU bookstore one time for a specific book, and while I was walking up and down the aisles trying to find it, this one caught my eye and I bought it. I love this book, I love the idea behind this book. Some of his ideas: "pleasure is the fleeting state that occurs in the transition from discomfort to comfort;" we have more free time and money than things we can effectively spend it on; in other words, more is not necessarily better. He uses this to explain introverts vs extroverts, how standardizing societies leads to boredom, our dining habits, the drug underclass, etc.
