Häftad Engelska, 2010-04-02


Most people would like to be more creative, more persuasive and more attractive. For years, gurus and 'life coaches' have urged people to improve their lives by changing the way they think and behave, but scientific research has revealed that many of their techniques, from group brainstorming to visualization, are ineffective. Fortunately, psychologist Richard Wiseman is on hand to provide fast-acting, myth-busting scientific answers to a huge range of everyday problems. From job-hunting to relationships, and from parenting to self-esteem, personal and professional success may be less than a minute away ...Find out why putting a pencil between your teeth instantly makes you feel happier. Discover why even thinking about going to the gym can help you keep in shape. Learn how putting just one thing in your wallet will improve the chance of it being returned if lost.

  1. Bra, men något dåligt upplagd
    Martin, 15 maj 2014

    Boken kunde ha förbättrats avsevärt vad gäller sig layout. Vissa bitar är en aning för korta, andra är alldeles för långa. Det känns som att det varit en dålig avvägning. Ändå så är den intressant och man behöver absolut inte sträckläsa den eller börja på sidan ett och läsa framåt utan det går att hoppa fritt hur man vill. Intressant läsning, men exemplen, de som visar att detta inte endast är hypoteser utan att det finns verklighetsförankring. De exemplen är ofta väldigt intressanta.
