Loved it! 5 Jun. 2014
By Haim Frank - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Full of fascinating, unexpected and surprising insights into day-to-day psychology from a totally novel angle. It's a pleasant read and nicely written. A very refreshing addition to this genre.

What I love about the book is that aside from the presentation of its fascinating findings (backed by documented scientific research) and insights, there are very useful "take-aways", i.e., tips, that can be applied to give you an edge in several areas -- dating, business, negotiations, parenting, sales, etc. You get a nifty little "bag of tricks" that are not easily perceived that can tip the scales in your favor.

Fascinating and so useful! 29 May 2014
By Freddy22 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I heard about this book on NPR and decided to give it a whirl. Sensation lays out so many interesting studies -- things I never would have thought about or imagined were going on in my environment -- and I found it so well laid out and detailed. The implications of the studies were clear. The ways that I can personally watch out for environmental stimuli that might affect my behavior were clear. Overall just SO SO interesting and well done. Seems like it'd be great for business people, but also people who date a lot or play sports. Really anyone! Well done Professor Lobel!

Thoroughly Fascinating 28 May 2014
By Valerhon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Citing a large number of experiments and studies, Thalma Lobel, in plain language, introduces us to the fascinating science of Physical Intelligence. She covers all the senses and how they, stimulated by environmental factors, influence our emotions, behavior, and decision-making. Entertaining and thought-provoking, this book not only explains the influences we are mostly unaware of, but offers advice on how to be more alert to them. Recommended.

News flash: we make decisions using all five of our senses 19 Jun. 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
A slightly sub-Gladwell entry in the crowded social psychology genre. Covers much of the same ground as Dan Ariely's "Predictably Irrational." You already know most of what's in this book: hot drinks make people friendlier while a cold room makes them standoffish; the physical weight of something suggests its perceived importance; red inspires either fear of failure, aggression, or sexual excitement, depending on context; white and black are associated with good and evil (though curiously, no discussion on the racial impact of this); washing your hands will make you feel morally clean.

New striking psychological discoveries which can be applied anywhere. 26 Jun. 2014
By julia - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was really an eye-opening and provided with so many interesting findings in terms of how we percept our surroundings. These findings can be applied to many social situations and you can get an edge and turn the situation to your favour just by keeping in mind these discoveries.
However, I must convince that at times it was quite boring read and I really made an effort to finish it until the end, as it was over descriptive then describing actual experiments, which is of course has to be done due to the nature of this book to provide enough of proof for psychological findings.
