Dan Gilbert on Happiness

This is fascinating. Dan Gilbert is a Harvard psychiatrist who has researched into how we synthesize happiness. This talk, about 20 minutes long, gives details of his work. He's an excellent, lively speaker. Thanks to Bibliobibuli for the tip.

Read the book on holiday - pretty good, though the relentlss wisecracking palls after a while.

Relentless wisecracking, eh? Reminds me of Ian Macmillan's publicity flyer from years ago - he'd been described as "relentlessly jolly" by a crabby critic, and appropriated it as his motto.
