Daniel Todd Gilbert

Overview

Daniel Gilbert is a Harvard psychology professor who you may have heard of from his viral TED Talk. He explains the science of happiness, based on our brain's ability to simulate the future.

His 2006 New York Times bestseller, Stumbling on Happiness, provides scenarios in which simulations lead us to make the wrong decisions and false assumptions about ourselves. The book encourages us to develop our self-awareness so we can avoid being fooled by our own brain in the future, and finally be happy.
