A best-selling author and psychologist gives us a myth-busting response to the self-help movement, with tips and tricks that come straight from the scientific community. Richard Wiseman has been troubled by the realization that the self-help industry often promotes exercises that destroy motivation, damage relationships, and reduce creativity: the opposite of everything it promises. Now, in 59 Seconds, he fights back, bringing together the diverse scientific advice that can help you change your life in literally under a minute. Can you become more creative by lying down? Why is it better for your emotional health to give than to receive? How can a light touch on the arm attract the opposite sex? Why does putting a plant in your office improve your productivity? Answering these questions and many more, 59 Seconds guides you toward becoming more decisive, more creative, more challenged, and altogether more happy. From mood to memory, persuasion to procrastination, resilience to relationships, Wiseman outlines the research supporting the new science of rapid change and, with clarity and infectious enthusiasm, describes how these quirky, sometimes counterintuitive techniques can be effortlessly incorporated into your everyday life. Or, as he likes to say: Think a little and change a lot.
