5.0 out of 5 stars using the dark arts for good, 29 Jun 2014

Interesting look at how to use the principles of advertising for behavioural change.Well written and informative.Advertsing would seem to be the origional evidence based psychological practice so worth trying if you want to make positive changes to peoples behaviour.

5.0 out of 5 stars Being idle is good for your brain, 19 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Formatting was a bit of a problem for the eBook but a very good look at how doing nothing is good for your brain. The author has a bit of a thing about time management 'gurus' and 6 stigma management process's but his argument against them is very entertaining.

2.0 out of 5 stars usual positive thinking hocum, 16 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Apparently any one can do anything they set their mind to,if they just set a goal and work really hard.This book has every self help cliche from the last 50 years all rolled into one little book.

2.0 out of 5 stars Right wing pseudoeconomics, 16 May 2014
The first book in this ever growing series was interesting in parts but nothing freakish about their thinking.Just the usual right wing theorising.There is a bit in this book where they say the NS can't work,even though admitting it is more efficient than the US model which they think is more efficient.they compare getting life saving care to getting a free car every year.It was obvious they did not know what they were talking about and basing their argument on the US prejudice against any state run enterprise.Considering their freakish thinking is supposed to be evidence based,most of their conclusions seem to be ideologically driven.

1.0 out of 5 stars trying to be the poster girl for psychosis, 5 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Found this very condecending and a puff piece for a psyhologist who thinks she may have had psychosis.Sounds more like someone with a personality disorder but each to their own.Not well written or particularly informative about mental illness.
