59 seconds by Richard Wiseman

59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot 59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot by Richard Wiseman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Most self help books are effectively worthless. A few platitudes, a bit of psychobabble and rarely the odd bit of common sense wrapped up in a lot of waffle. Rarely will they have anything like the life changing effects promised on the cover.

Fifty Nine seconds by Richard Wiseman is different. It contains solid advice on a variety of subjects, backed up by properly cited research, with each chapter summarised into handy bite size chunks that can be digested in less than a minute. It covers subjects including personal happiness, memory, relationships, parenting and self motivation.

Excellent for dipping into and concise enough to be practical.
