Also the author of The Luck Factor, Paranormality, and Did You Spot the Gorilla?, Richard Wiseman is Britain's only professor for the Public Understanding of Psychology, and has gained an international reputation for research into such offbeat areas of psychology as deception, humor, and luck. While other scientists beaver away on obvious problems, Wiseman has been busy uncovering the secret ingredients of charisma, exploring how our personalities are shaped by when we are born, and examining why people usually miss the obvious signs of their partner's infidelity. Using scientific methods to investigate oddball topics, Wiseman's Quirkology brings new understanding to the backwaters of the human mind where mainstream scientists fear to tread, investigating such questions as: How does your surname influence your life? What does the way you walk reveal about your personality? Why should women have men write their personal ads? And what is the funniest joke in the world?
