Schacter, Gilbert and Wegner’s PSYCHOLOGY

An introduction to psychology doesn’t have to be science-challenged to be student-friendly. After all, what more powerful tool is there for captivating students than the real science behind what we know? Dan Schacter, Dan Gilbert and Dan Wegner’s skillful presentation centers on a smart selection of pioneering and cutting-edge experiments and examples. They effectively convey the remarkable achievements of psychology (with the right amount of critical judgment) to introduce the field’s fundamental ideas to students.
But it is not just the science that sets Psychology apart—its the way Schacter, Gilbert, and Wegner write about it. Each is a world-renowned researcher and accomplished classroom teacher. Each has written popular books that get to the heart of what fascinates people about psychology.  Read any chapter of Psychology—any page—and you’ll see why.  Bracing, easy to read, rich with captivating examples that make the ideas clear, concrete and relevant, Psychology communicates in a way that elevates and inspires students.
It is anything but just another textbook.

'Stumbling on Happiness' by DANIEL GILBERT
'In this fascinating and often hilarious work -winner of the Royal Society of Science Prize 2007- pre-eminent psychologist Daniel Gilbert shows how — and why — the majority of us have no idea how to make ourselves happy. We all want to be happy, but do we know how? When it comes to improving tomorrow at the expense of today, we're terrible at predicting how to please our future selves. In 'Stumbling on Happiness' Professor Daniel Gilbert combines psychology, neuroscience, economics and philosophy with irrepressible wit to describe how the human brain imagines its future — and how well (or badly) it predicts what it will enjoy. Revealing some of the amazing secrets of human motivation, he also answers thought-provoking questions — why do dining companions order different meals instead of getting what they want? Why are shoppers happier when they can't get refunds? And why are couples less satisfied after having children while insisting that their kids are a source of joy?'
I’ve read this amazing book and think everyone should. :) Available here. (Amazon.com)
