Product description


A cornucopia of brain-teasers and other (psycho)logical delights that will challenge, surprise and amuse (Guy Deutscher, author of 'Through the Language Glass')

A book that manages to be both broad and deep, serious but lots of fun. Recommended (Tim Harford, author of 'The Undercover Economist')

A clear and engaging explanation of many psychological phenomena you've vaguely heard of, and many more you'll be glad to learn about (Steven Pinker)

Behind the breeziness, what he turns out to be doing for psychology is rather like what Freak-onomics did a few years ago for the dismal science - blowing the cobwebs off the reputation of a discipline that in many people's minds is stuck in a murky past... Attentive readers may end up not just understanding the rudiments of his science, but also knowing their own psychological limitations better. Clever, broad-minded and fun (Vanora Bennett Sunday Times)

For all its easy-peasy, playful, tick-in-the-box larkiness, Psy-Q makes some very interesting points about the counter-intuitive nature of human psychology, and has a fresh and often iconoclastic take on even the most celebrated experiments (Craig Brown Mail on Sunday)

A readable, accessible and un-putdownable book that I managed to devour in an entire afternoon (The Bookbag)

Book Description

A mind-bending miscellany of everyday psychology.
