Jonathan Haidt

"The Happiness Hypotheses" by Jonathan Haidt is among the most profound books on individual and social behavior--readable also. Daniel Kahneman contributed more to economics than any psychologist before him (excluding the real father of psychology: Adam Smith), but if economists really want to explain societal behavior, they can learn even more from Dr. Haidt.

It is not another "cute" book; it is surprisingly profound.
