Publisher's Summary

For over 20 years, psychologist Professor Richard Wiseman has examined the quirky science of everyday life.
In Quirkology, he navigates the backwaters of human behavior, discovering the telltale signs that give away a liar, the secret science behind speed dating and personal ads, and what a person's sense of humour reveals about the innermost workings of their mind - all along paying tribute to others who have carried out similarly weird and wonderful work.
Wiseman's research has involved secretly observing people as they go about their daily business, conducting unusual experiments in art exhibitions and music concerts, and even staging fake seances in allegedly haunted buildings.
With thousands of research subjects from all over the world, including enamoured couples, unwitting pedestrians, and guileless dinner guests, Wiseman presents a fun, clever, and unexpected picture of the human mind.

Fascinating

A great book to dip in and out of, full of interesting and well explained facts. I am now fully equipped to go to dinner parties and share my fascinating knowledge. (Now all I need is to be invited to a dinner party. Someone write a book to help me with this please.)
