    more from this reviewer

    A waste of my time and money

    The author presents no really new information for the reader. These techniques in similar form have been around for a long time. Instead of spending his writing time on relevant issues he pokes fun at George Bush, revealing his Euro-style socialist-progressive origins. These gratuitous comments are hidden in his book and are as welcome as my finding some horse excrement in a Cornish pasty. If I want to buy tripe I will purchase it at a butcher shop, not from Barnesandnoble.

    I Also Recommend:

    Activities based on real people, real brain mechanics, real situations BUY this!

    Meditations, imaging, mindful behaviors are traditionally taught through painful positions and hours of focus - the author has sliced through all that and using solid research shows how the brain actually works.
    Procrastination - two simple exercise to do on the run that work
    Reduce stress sitting in your car at a red light
    Just two of the ideas that I put to use immediately.
    Simple to read and works.

    Not Wiseman's best, but still a great read

    I loved Wiseman's "Quirkology," so I was looking forward to reading this book. While it didn't quite match that book's brilliance, 59 Seconds is still worth reading. It takes real scientific research and converts it into America's favorite reading - "self-help." So now you get tips from an actual expert, using actual scientific facts, giving you advice, rather than any old crackpot who decided to write a book.
