Happiness is a warm puppy. Until you get the puppy home and it's chewing on your furniture and you wonder why you ever thought having a puppy would make you happy. This kind of thing happens all the time. The thing we think will satisfy our future selves differs greatly from reality when the future actually arrives. There's a reason for it. It's our brains. In this fascinating and hilarious book, Harvard psychology professor Daniel Gilbert explains the many ways our brains wrongly imagine what will and will not make us happy. My current self thanks my former self for having the good sense to read this mind-bending and hugely entertaining book. ~ Reviewed by Stan Hynds

If you're at all curious about what manic depression is like, read this book. Kay Redfield Jamison combines the story of her personal experience and struggles with the illness with the objectivity and knowledge of being a psychiatrist. It's the kind of book that I couldn't put down and it stayed with me long after reading it.
