I can't remember who told me about this book, but I am insanely grateful this book is on my bookshelf. Aha! That's one thing you can do is to "develop the gratitude attitude." That's quick and easy to do. Less than 59 seconds, as a matter of fact.
What I find to be most interesting is the WHY. For each topic, Wiseman shares a number of fascinating research experiments (both his own and ones done by others) and then offers a number of specific suggestions on how to make it work in your own life.
The first time, I read it from cover to cover. I found that it's better the second time around where you pick it up, read a section, then put it down, and try it out. Some of of the suggestions I don't really need (e.g.how to build instant rapport on a first date) but are interesting, nevertheless. Some of my favorite stories or suggestions?
- Musical Chairs. "There are two schools of thought relating to group dynamics and creativity. One believes in not changing team membership, arguing that people then feel more comfortable with one another and so are happier to suggest the kinds of weird and wonderful ideas that are the hallmark of creativity. In contrast, the other point of view holds that it is better to generate new patterns of thinking by constantly mixing up the membership." Which is better? Weisman cites a study conducted by Charlan Nemeth and Margaret Ormiston at the University of California that concludes mixing it up is better.
- Choose the Middle Way. If you want to increase your chances of making a good impression in a meeting, sit toward the middle of the table. Psychologists Priya Raghubir and Ana Valenzuela analyzed episodes of the TV game show, The Weakest Link, and found that the contestants in the center of the semi-circle won the game more frequently than those on the extremities. (Reminds me of the presidential primary debates!)
- The Most Reliable Cues to Lying. Pay attention to the words that people use. "Liars tend to lack detail, use more "ums" and "ahs," and avoid self-references ("me,” "mine," "I"). In addition, people are about 20% less likely to lie in an email than in a telephone call, because their words are on record and are more likely to come back and haunt them!"

As one that rarely purchases physical copies; I have to say that I really enjoyed 59 Seconds. Wiseman is insightful, funny, and offers deep insight into the human psychology, in a easy and accessible way. It's a great book to add to one's collection, and does the job as a good conversation starter. From people not into psychology, all the way to people educated in psychological theory, 59 Seconds serves as a transformative, insightful book into changing your life.

P.S. One part of the book I really enjoyed was when the author exhorted you to smile. Just try it now! Smile for 10 seconds. Even if you don't feel happy, force yourself to physically smile.

How did you feel? Happier? Wiseman explains that phsyically smiling actually makes you psychologically believe that you are happy, and does wonders to your move. I never knew that before!

This is one of those books that are all over the place. From how to encourage your kids towards success to the best way to speed dating (or effective dating). It's like a Swiss Army knife for life and all the tips and hacks are condensed in a one minute principle (sort of). The book relies in studies and experiments done on the different topics as well as it analyzes counterparts and critics to some of the theories or conclusions. It's a good curious read. You might find some topic of interest. Good buy.

Subtitled "Change Your Life in Under a Minute," this fascinating book resulted from a conversation the author had with his friend Sophie, who was questioning a recently purchased self-help book she had on happiness. She asked him what he thought of the whole self-help industry. As he opined on his professional opinion of many of the techniques touted by these "experts," Sophie asked if he had some information that would be more helpful in less time. After all, she is a busy, successful professional. When Wiseman asked how much time he had, she glanced at her watch, smiled and said, "About a minute?"

Thus 59 seconds was born. This intriguing and highly practical book is replete with scores of studies on a wide range of topics that are the targets of the self-help, pop psychology industry, notably happiness, persuasion, motivation, creativity, attraction, relationships, stress, decision making, parenting and personality. Wiseman combines solid research with whimsy and practical activities to aid the reader in executing the subtitle of the book - Change your life in under a minute.

The author closes the book by providing Sophie with ten techniques that can, on a good day (according to Wiseman), be explained in under a minute (say, 59 seconds?).

Here they are:
1. Develop the gratitude attitude.
2. Be a giver.
3. Have a mirror in your kitchen.
4. Buy a potted plant for the office.
5. Touch people lightly on the upper arm.
6. Write about your relationship.
7. Deal with potential liars by closing your eyes and asking for email.
8. Praise children's effort over their ability.
9. Visualize yourself doing, not achieving.
10. Consider your legacy.

Do yourself a favor and don't just copy and try these ten techniques. Read the book and apply them.
