TTN DC Chapter Tuesday Ted Talk - The Science of Happiness

(Posted June 2, 2020)

Over 100 TTN members registered for this DC Chapter Ted Talk event:

Dan Gilbert's, The Surprising Science of Happiness.

The premise of his current research -- that our assumptions about what will make us happy are often wrong -- is supported with clinical research drawn from psychology and neuroscience. But his delivery is what sets him apart. His engaging -- and often hilarious -- style pokes fun at typical human behavior and invokes pop-culture references everyone can relate to. This winning style translates also to Gilbert's writing, which is lucid, approachable and laugh-out-loud funny. The immensely readable Stumbling on Happiness, published in 2006, became a New York Times bestseller and has been translated into 20 languages.
