Most people would like to be more creative, more persuasive and more attractive. For years, gurus and 'life coaches' have urged people to improve their lives by changing the way they think and behave, but scientific research has revealed that many of their techniques, from group brainstorming to visualization, are ineffective.

Fortunately, in 59 Seconds psychologist Richard Wiseman is on hand to provide fast-acting, myth-busting scientific answers to a huge range of everyday problems. From job-hunting to relationships, and from parenting to self-esteem, personal and professional success may be less than a minute away . . .

* Find out why putting a pencil between your teeth instantly makes you feel happier

* Discover why even thinking about going to the gym can help you keep in shape

* Learn how putting just one thing in your wallet will improve the chance of it being returned if lost

£5.38 on Kindle

I really want to use iBooks rather than my Kindle, but Apple come on sort out your frankly stupid pricing model. Why would I pay over £3 more to buy a book that I can just read in the Kindle App on my iPad?

A real self-help book

Sick of all those self-help books promising what they cannot deliver? 59 Seconds is a really interesting book with more ideas to help make you happy or achieve your goals. What makes it different? Well, these are not the vague or common sense tips from a typical author of a "self-help" book. Wiseman offers things we can do that are backed up by scientific research and easily achievable.

And most importantly, it's an entertaining and enjoyable read. Highly recommended!

Fact not fiction

At last a self-help book that is backed up by research and facts! If you want a book that will blow away the previous soft approaches to self help which relieved on urban myths, this is the book for you. This book is full of useful ideas to enhance your life in as many ways as your imagination and attitudes will allow. It makes no attempt to hide that any change involves work on your part. But at least Richard helps you to find the most efficient way forward in a light hearted way that keeps you turning the pages for more.
