About Daniel Gilbert

How To Do Precisely the Right Thing At All Possible Times Floss daily, save for retirement, and don’t wear plaid pants before or after Labor Day. Most experts tell us what to decide but they don’t tell us how, and so the moment we face a novel decision—should I move to Cleveland or Anchorage? Marry Jennifer or Joanne? Become an architect or a pastry chef?—we’re lost. Is there any way to know how to precisely the right thing at all possible times? In fact, there is a simple method for making decisions that most people find easy to understand and impossible to follow. New research in psychology, neuroscience, and behavioral economics explains why. Stumbling on Happiness Daniel Gilbert believes that most of us are pursuing happiness with the wrong map. Just as optical illusions fool our eyes, Gilbert’s award-winning research shows that our brains systematically mispredict what will make us happy. His work has had a profound influence in psychology, behavioral economics, law, and medicine. The message is original, but it his delivery that sets him apart. His quick, engaging, and often hilarious style of writing and speaking explains why he was chosen to host the new PBS televisions series Secrets of Happiness and why his book Stumbling on Happiness spent 25 weeks on the New York Times bestseller and has been translated into 30 languages. According to The Wall Street Journal, Daniel Gilbert is a world-renowned authority on how people predict their emotional reactions to future events. He is the author of the national bestseller Stumbling on Happiness, which spent 25 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, has being translated into 30 languages, and was awarded the Royal Society’s General Prize for best science book of the year. Time magazine called it “Fascinating,” the New York Times called it “Brilliant,” and Bloomberg News called it “the only truly useful book on psychology I’ve ever read.” Daniel’s groundbreaking research on how people make judgments, choices and decisions lies at the intersection of psychology and behavioral economics. Gilbert is a Professor of Psychology at Harvard University. In addition to being a leading scientist and best-selling author, Gilbert is also an award winning teacher and public speaker. He is a regular contributor to The New York Times, has written for Time and Forbes, has been a guest on The Today Show, Charlie Rose, 20/20, and The Colbert Report, and is the host of the new PBS television series Secrets of Happiness.
