Regret buying it, although it did do what it promised.

Really just wanted to say that most of the two and three star reviews on here resonated with me. I liked the scientific slant, but I found the '59 seconds' gimmick made the content pretty shallow. There was nothing really new for me and as I didn't really buy it as a self-help book, and more out of general interest, I was left bored by the book pretty quickly. It's obvious to me now that anything that says 'think a little' on the front, probably wasn't what I was looking for, but the promise of science reeled me in. I think I've learned my lesson!
I don't think I've ever read a self-help book before, so it's all the more suprising that most of the information in here, I'd heard before. Just bear in mind the reason why you're thinking of buying this, because I think it can be a dissapointment.
