Richard Wiseman is a Professor of the Public Understanding of Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire in the United Kingdom. He has given keynote addresses to The Royal Society, The Swiss Economic Forum, Google, and Amazon.
The magazine Scientific American described him as “…the most interesting and innovative experimental psychologist in the world today”.
I stumbled upon his book “59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot” when I was looking for the books in Cognitive Psychology section and I found this one particularly interesting.
I have found it very impressive so far, basically, it’s all about Psychology but he has explained things in far more simpler way than that of Daniel Goleman. I actually have read 2 books of Daniel Goleman and I find this one much simpler than those twos. And don’t even get me started on the book “Interpretation of Dreams” by Sigmund Freud because reading that book was pretty much reading Operating Systems by Galvin.
