About the Author
Richard Wiseman is Britain's only professor for the Public Understanding of Psychology and is the author of the bestselling Quirkology. He is the psychologist most frequently quoted by the British media.
I really enjoyed reading 59 seconds and am considering buying additional copies as gifts. Backed by research, Wiseman gives fascinating insight into the way the human mind really operates. His research debunks many of the myths generated by self-help gurus, such as the so called success of visualisation techniques. I didn't think I'd enjoy a book written by a professor (not being a fan of intellectual speak!), but Wiseman displays a quirky sense of humour and has an engaging and simple writing style. Not only does Wiseman present interesting facts, but in doing so gives us the tools to change our lives with methods that have been proven to work. I loved this book.
