Stumbling on Happiness

"Stumbling on Happiness" is a new book by Daniel Gilbert, reviewed today in the NYT, and a wonderfully fluent, tumbling and falling torrent of words quite apart from the content. I have read only the first chapter (courtesy of the NYT), but like it because it ties in with what I have been discussing with Norma et al about wide and shallow. None of it is news, but doesn't it make a difference to read good writing?

I am also ordering Mark Twain's Hawaiian Journals with all the naughty bits in.
