Description
The self-help industry often promotes exercises that actually destroy motivation, damage relationships, and reduce creativity—the opposite of all it promises, notes psychologist Richard Wiseman. Also the author of The Luck Factor, Paranormality, and Did You Spot the Gorilla?, Wiseman here counters this troubling self-help dynamic, offering diverse bits of scientific advice that can help you change your life in under a minute, while guiding you toward becoming more decisive, more imaginative, more engaged, and altogether more happy. With infectious enthusiasm, Wiseman outlines the research supporting the recent scientific study of "rapid change" and describes how these quirky, sometimes counterintuitive techniques can be incorporated into your everyday life.

"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
