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, in 59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot 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.

Review:

'At last, a self-help guide that is based on proper research. Perfect for busy, curious, smart people' --Simon Singh, author of Fermat's Last Theorem

'A triumph of scientifically proven advice over misleading myths of self-help. Challenging, uplifting and long overdue' --Derren Brown

`This is a self-help book, but with a difference: almost everything in it is underpinned by peer-reviewed and often fascinating research. It could actually help you be a little happier, perform better at interviews, procrastinate less, improve your relationships, reduce your stress levels and be a better parent' --New Scientist

`A fascinating read.' --Star Magazine

`Contains dozens of fascinating and useful nuggets, and they all have science on their side.' --The Independent

'Finally, a self-help book that does away with the soul-searching. No wonder the, that Richard Wiseman's collection of scientifically supported quick fixes promising long-term change has soared up the Amazon charts... This book addresses what you're thinking right now. Cognitive-behavourial ideas can repidly change the way you think.' --Sunday Times Style

'Short and sweet: a self help book that really works. It's an engrossing read and a whole lot cheaper than therapy.' --Waitrose Weekend

'Wiseman is a brilliant name for a psychologist, and this book proves he is not misnamed. All the self help tips here are backed by scientific studies, and take less than a minute to implement... contains dozens of fascinating nuggets. Is the thought of Christmas stressing you out? Then go online and spend a minute watching a video of a cute animal...' -- Independent on Sunday Paperbacks of the Year

Book Description:

Whether you’re looking to be more decisive in your life, find a new job or simply be happier, the chances are that this book has the 'magic bullet' you need.
