Summary

Why two heads are no better than one, how never to regret a decision again, protect yourself against hidden persuaders, and tell when someone is lying to you.
Most people would like to be more decisive. For years, gurus and ‘life coaches’ have urged people to improve their lives by changing the way they think and behave, but scientific research has revealed that many of their techniques, including group brainstorming, are ineffective.
Fortunately, psychologist Richard Wiseman is on hand to provide fast-acting, myth-busting scientific answers to a huge range of everyday problems. From getting your foot in the door to never regretting a decision again, personal and professional success may be less than a minute away.

Excellent practical advice

The book certainly delivers on its promise. Practical easy to implement advice. The challenge for us listeners is to actually use the advice :)

awful don't buy

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

can't even fill 52 minutes with useful information on decision making, completely off-piste. I was expecting 52 minutes of dynamite, but there aren't even 52 seconds of it.

Has 59 Seconds: Decision-Making put you off other books in this genre?

yes

How could the performance have been better?

it could have made some attempt to deliver what it suggested it would.
