London UX Bookclub discusses 'Stumbling on Happiness' - 20 August 09

Stumbling on HappinessJoin us at the London UX Bookclub this month when we will be discussing Daniel Gilbert's 'Stumbling on Happiness' - a book not immediately about design or user experience but about the way that the human mind works and as such should form the basis of some really interesting discussion amongst the group.


This is one of two bookclubs to be held in August. Details of the other, to be held on the 18th August, are here.


Happy reading and hope to see you at Bookclub!
