Ever wondered why bad musicians always win the Eurovision Song Contest, or how incompetent politicians get elected?
Professor Richard Wiseman uncovers the secret ingredients of charisma, explores how our personalities are shaped by when we are born and examines why people usually miss the obvious signs of their partner's infidelity. Using scientific methods to investigate offbeat topics, Quirkology brings a new understanding to the backwaters of the human mind and takes us to places where mainstream scientists fear to tread.
