Description

A string of best sellers have alerted us to the importance of grit - an ability to persevere and control one's impulses that is closely associated with greatness. But no book yet has charted the most accessible and powerful path to grit: our prosocial emotions. These feelings - gratitude, compassion, and pride - are easier to generate than the willpower and self-denial that underpin traditional approaches to grit. And, while willpower is quickly depleted, prosocial emotions actually become stronger the more we use them. These emotions have another crucial advantage: they're contagious. Those around us become more likely to apply them when we do.

As this myth-shattering book explains, prosocial emotions evolved specifically to help us resist immediate temptations in favor of long-term gains. Originally, they enabled us to build lasting relationships with other people, and they still do that brilliantly. But they can also be adapted to strengthen our bonds with our own future selves - who will benefit most from the grit we need to succeed in life. No matter what our goals are, Emotional Success can help us achieve them with greater ease and deeper satisfaction than we would have thought possible.

It's pretty OK

Bought this after listening to Very Bad Wizards, and I was really excited to read it!
But I really didn't like the style of this book. Desteno basically finds and explains a ton of interesting studies, but only in a superfluous way. Sometimes, it's pretty obvious that there's some nuance missing, some "unambiguous results" that were found in correlational studies. In other words, he's showing clear bias towards his results; his book is written to push specific ideas and agendas, instead of simply presenting what we know and what we may want to investigate concerning emotions and positive psychology.

Are they interesting ideas? Sure. The problem is that it comes off as...well, kinda dishonest. We're never presented to the author nor his own opinions, each result that Desteno derives from studies is presented as factual and uncontroversial, despite there being a lot of interesting nuance and ambiguity there. Desteno also takes a fairly odd perspective concerning emotions, evoking concepts like morality and self-control where they either don't quite tie in neatly, aren't explained properly, are explained post hoc with evolution, or just plain seem jammed in to make a call back to a previous point.

It makes for a somewhat monotone read; you're never presented with opposing thoughts or ideas, we don't get much exploration or discovery since everything presenting correlates the same way. Studies stop becoming intriguing pretty quickly due to this, and the book becomes kind of bloated for it as the pace is somewhat irregular (nitpicky criticism I know). I don't know if I'd recommend this one, but it can be pretty interesting if you don't know much about positive psychology yet, or if you're looking for studies in the field, I guess. For comparaison's sake, it doesn't come close to holding up to something like "Authentic Happiness", but I still finished the book. Presented in a different style or direction, it could've been a fantastic read, so I'm hopeful for the author to keep writing on the subject.

Why money will not motivate us long term.

David explanation around what motivates us made a lot of sense to me. I have always wondered why making a large annual income I am not motivated to double my annual income. I have always been told that if you work hard enough you can get anything. But how do you keep yourself motivated after years and years of struggling. Well it is in this book that answered my questions. It turns out that gratitude, compassion and pride play a very important role in long term success.
