David DeSteno with Paul Bloom: Emotional Success

Emotional Success: The Power of Gratitude, Compassion, and Pride

It’s undeniable that the ability to persevere — to value the future over the present — underlies success. But why are many so poor at it and unhappy while pursuing it? Maybe we’re going about it in entirely the wrong way.

Psychologist David DeSteno and Yale University’s Paul Bloom will explore how and why certain emotions like gratitude and compassion offer a stronger, more reliable and more efficient route to achieving goals and a more resilient society than does relying on the fragilities of willpower and nose-to-the grindstone isolation.

A book signing follows the event.
