    In this fascinating and often hilarious work - winner of the Royal Society of Science Prize 2007 - pre-eminent psychologist Daniel Gilbert shows how - and why - the majority of us have no idea how to make ourselves happy.We all want to be happy, but do we know how? When it comes to improving tomorrow at the expense of today, we're terrible at predicting how to please our future selves.In 'Stumbling on Happiness' Professor Daniel Gilbert combines psychology, neuroscience, economics and philosophy with irrepressible wit to describe how the human brain imagines its future - and how well (or badly) it predicts what it will enjoy. Revealing some of the amazing secrets of human motivation, he also answers thought-provoking questions - why do dining companions order different meals instead of getting what they want? Why are shoppers happier when they can't get refunds? And why are couples less satisfied after having children while insisting that their kids are a source of joy?

    by Daniel Gilbert
    £5.49

    Miert bocsatjuk meg hamarabb tarsunknak a hutlenseget, mint azt, hogy megint nem mosogatott el? Miert rendelunk mast az etteremben, mint vacsorapartnerunk, meg akkor is, ha valojaban ugyanazt szeretnenk enni? Miert erezzuk ugy, hogy az a sor, amelyikbe epp bealltunk, azonnal lelassul? Mindenki a boldogsagot keresi, de - tudomanyos szempontbol legalabbis - rossz modszert valasztunk: megprobaljuk megbecsulni, jovobeli onmagunkat vajon mi teszi majd boldogga, es afele igyekszunk haladni. Ezt a becslest azonban rengeteg rejtett gondolkodasi illuzio torzitja, ezert igy nagyjabol ugyanannyi eselyunk van megtalalni a boldogsagot, mint ha csak ugy veletlenul rabukkannank. Daniel Gilbert, a Harvard pszichologiaprofesszoranak fantasztikus humorral es konnyedseggel megirt konyvebol megtudhatjuk, hogyan mukodik az emberi agy, a kepzelet es az emlekezet, es hogy miert nem tudjuk ugy elkepzelni a jovot, s igy a boldogsagunkat, amilyen az valoban lesz vagy lehetne. Valaszt kapunk arra is, kikuszobolhetjuk-e ezeket a torzitasokat, hogy jovobeli onmagunk elegedettebb lehessen.
