    Inhaltsangabe

    A smart and funny book by a prominent Harvard psychologist, which uses groundbreaking research and (often hilarious) anecdotes to show us why we're so lousy at predicting what will make us happy, and what we can do about it.

    Most of us spend our lives steering ourselves toward the best of all possible futures, only to find that tomorrow rarely turns out as we had expected. Why? As Harvard psychologist Daniel Gilbert explains, when people try to imagine what the future will hold, they make some basic and consistent mistakes. Just as memory plays tricks on us when we try to look backward in time, so does imagination play tricks when we try to look forward.

    Using cutting-edge research, much of it original, Gilbert shakes, cajoles, persuades, tricks, and jokes us into accepting the fact that happiness is not really what or where we thought it was. Among the unexpected questions he poses: Why are conjoined twins no less happy than the general population? When you go out to eat, is it better to order your favorite dish every time, or to try something new? If Ingrid Bergman hadn't gotten on the plane at the end of Casablanca, would she and Bogey have been better off?

    Kritikerstimmen

    "An absolutely fantastic book that will shatter your most deeply held convictions about how your own mind works. Ceaselessly entertaining." (Steven D. Levitt, author of Freakonomics)

    Insightful, funny & well narrated - Made me think!

    Was hat Ihnen am allerbesten an Stumbling on Happiness gefallen?

    I liked how Mr. Gilbert made the content of his book - current cutting edge research results on flawful thinking regarding the prediction and recollection of future happyness - very accessible to me as a listener.

    Welche Figur hat Ihnen am besten gefallen? Warum?

    I enjoyed how Mr. Gilbert involved his family's characters including his then 2 year granddaughter's current preferred literature into the narrative.

    Hat Ihnen Daniel Gilbert an der Geschichte etwas vermittelt, was Sie vielleicht beim Selberlesen gar nicht bemerkt hätten?

    As a non-native english speaker, it was very helpful to hear Mr. Gilbert speak. He is a very good narrator and brough out the humour in his own book. (I believe this aspect would have been lost if the book had been narrated by someone else)

    Gab es im Hörbuch einen Moment, der Sie ganz besonders berührt hat?

    As my wife and I lost our firstborn son earlier this year, I found Mr. Gilbert's summary on those findings relating to how our conciousness deals with such life altering experiences very helpful and promising.

    I can unfortunately second some of his findings already wholeheartedly.

    Was wäre für andere Hörer sonst noch hilfreich zu wissen, um das Hörbuch richtig einschätzen zu können?

    The book demystifyes how and why we experience different events differently from how we would have anticipated it. ("happier" / "less happy")

    I personally would have preferred a stronger so what conclusion towards the end of the book. Mr. Gilbert's recommendation of asking someone who has experienced a similar situation to correctly anticipate the future emotions people might go through is helpful - however - with regards to plannable experiences it might have been more interesting to get concrete recommendations on how to plan / schedule them in such a way that we are actually chosing enjoyable ones (without consulting friends / experts ahead of time on every conceivable option)

    where is the happiness part?

    while listening through half of this book, I never got to understand, what exactly the author is trying to tell. it's a mischmasch of different stories and explanations that don't really have to do with happiness. I guess I expectes something else

    Boring

    Boring could not finish it. Can’t follow it and don’t know how this is about happiness.

    interessant

    gutes Hörbuch, toller Sprecher (den ich aber auf x0,9 Geschwindigkeit setzen musste) nur leider kein richtiges'resultat'. was aber ironischerweise genau sein Punkt ist! würde es definitiv jedem empfehlen

    Must hear!

    Excellent book. All findings backed up with scientific evidence - and still utterly entertaining. A must read/hear!!!

    Brilliantly read by the author

    Wonderful insights in the subjects. Explained in a very clear way. Often spiced with a lot of humour. Overall experience very enjoyable. A little too many studies mentioned.. We jump from study to study following the authors mind. Sometimes i wished to have a little more of the authors own view on things but maybe listening a second time would satisfy that need already. Thank you a lot for this book!

    Interessant, aber nicht ganz rund

    Interesante Kette von Studien und einige Erkenntnisse, die alle kennen sollten. Allerdings fehlt mir der rote Faden und eine runde Zusammenfassung. Ich fühle mich eher stehengelassen mit all den Informationen.

    Very well documented. Makes you reflect.

    Great book. The style of Daniel Gilbert is very nice to read, even at some points the lecture gets into philosophical level. It is the type of books that make you think in your own perceptions and future expectations. Highly recommendable.
