If you have been able to distinguish between good and the bad and often wonder what alienates the two, then this book will appeal to you. If you are one of those people that often wonder why bad singers win and corrupt politicians reign, then you are likely to find the answers in this book by Richard Wiseman, as he unravels the secret constituents that make up our personality and the manner in which our personalities are shaped. The effect of the human mind is looked at from a whole new perspective, as the author takes us to a place where mainstream scientists fear to tread. While reading the book you may want to compare it to 'Freakonomics' but I have personally liked this book a bit more as it is essentially of a lighter vein. I recommend this book to anybody who wants to have a good laugh and at the same time know about the everyday events and why things are the way they are.
