    Six Myths About the Good Life is a book published in 2006 and written by Joel J. Kupperman about values; when it comes to his argument about "pleasure not always leading to the optimal" Kupperman says that the constant pursuit of pleasure is just anxiety, a compulsion for more regardless of any consequences and the evidence of a deeper existential and psychological trauma due to their inability to get fulfilment or gratification. He also states that life with infinite pleasures would be boring. I believe that from those arguments, the most convincing one would be the 1st one where the constant pursuit of pleasure not always lead to an optimal outcome or satisfaction, especially if anxiety is involved to the extent of people not aware of what actually makes them happy and going for the next pleasant target without consciously enjoying what they already obtained but going by inertia.
