Abstract:

From mood to memory, resilience to relationships, the self-help industry often promotes exercises that destroy motivation, damage relationships, and reduce creativity--the opposite of everything it promises. Here, psychologist Wiseman brings together a broad range of scientific advice supporting the new science of rapid change and describes how these quirky, sometimes counterintuitive techniques can help you change your life in under a minute, and guides you toward becoming more decisive, more imaginative, more engaged, and altogether more happy.--From publisher description.
