How we do happy

by Philomena B on Oct 17, 2011

Interesting ideas on happiness and the human brain. How our thoughts and expectations impact on how we feel. We judge the future based on the present but that is not a good idea and we have no idea how we may feel in the future. Easy to read.

This book was the best I've read in many months! It was so full of interesting ideas that I have already read it twice, and will probably pick it up in a few months from now to read again!
