You've finally reached the goal (a new home, job promotion, marriage...) that you thought would make you happy—but you’re not. What's wrong? Why are so many of us depressed, so unhappy in our personal lives? “...today we suffer from an unparalleled case of inflated hopes and expectations,” says Dr. David Brandt. “Disappointment flourishes in this environment.” Here’s the antidote: Is That All There Is? explains the psychology of disappointment, social influences that contribute to it, ways we deal with it, and how to convert it to a force for positive growth in our lives.
