¿Por qué se le perdona al ser amado antes una infidelidad que dejar los platos sucios en el fregadero? ¿Por qué la gente que ve pagaría más por evitar quedarse ciega que un ciego por recuperar la visión? ¿Por qué la gente que comparte mesa se empeña en pedir platos diferentes en lugar de pedir lo que de verdad les apetece? ¿Por qué los pacientes recuerdan los largos tratamientos médicos como menos dolorosos que los cortos? ¿Por qué los compradores son más felices cuando no pueden devolver algo que han comprado? ¿Por qué no podemos recordar una canción mientras escuchamos otra? ¿Por qué la fila para pagar en el supermercado siempre se ralentiza en cuanto nos incorporamos a ella?.... Un libro tan divertido como inteligente.

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 favourite 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? Smart, witty, accessible and laugh-out-loud funny, Stumbling on Happiness brilliantly describes all that science has to tell us about the uniquely human ability to envision the future, and how likely we are to enjoy it when we get there. From the Hardcover edition.

As human beings we are constantly engaging and disengaging in everything we do. We engage and disengage at work, in marriage, as parents, in our quest for health and well-being, in personal finances, environmentally, politically, and, of course, we engage or disengage spiritually. If you walk into any Catholic church next Sunday and look around, you will discover that some people are highly engaged, others are massively disengaged, and the majority are somewhere in between. Why? What is the difference between highly engaged Catholics and disengaged Catholics? Answering this question is essential to the future of the Catholic Church. If we truly want to engage Catholics and reinvigorate parish life, we must first discover what drives engagement among Catholics.
