Praise

“This is a self-help book, but with a difference: almost everything in it is underpinned by peer-reviewed and often fascinating research.”
 — New Scientist

“For all those who are tired of the usual self-help formula–homespun anecdotes, upbeat platitudes, over-the-top promises–Richard Wiseman’s 59 Seconds is just what the PhD ordered.”
 — The Wall Street Journal

“Seemingly perfect for this age of short attention spans and instant gratification.”
 — The Chronicle Herald

“At last, a self-help guide that is based on proper research. Perfect for busy, curious, smart people.”
 — Simon Singh, author of Fermat’s Enigma

“Wiseman is a brilliant name for a psychologist, and this book proves the professor is not misnamed. . . . [59 Seconds] contains dozens of fascinating and useful nuggets, and they all have science on their side.”
 — The Independent
