Quirkology: How We Discover the Big Truths in Small Things

Richard Wiseman


For over two decades, psychologist Richard Wiseman has tested the quirky technological know-how of way of life. In Quirkology, he navigates the eccentricities of human habit, explaining the tell-tale symptoms that provide away a liar, the key technology at the back of speed-dating and private advertisements, and what a person’s humorousness finds in regards to the innermost workings of his or her mind—all alongside paying tribute to others who've performed equally bizarre paintings. Wiseman’s study has concerned secretly looking at humans as they cross approximately their day-by-day company, accomplishing strange experiments in artwork exhibitions and tune live shows, or even staging pretend séances in allegedly haunted structures. With millions of analysis matters from around the world, together with enamored undefined, unwitting pedestrians, and guileless dinner site visitors, Wiseman offers a enjoyable, smart, and unforeseen photograph of the human mind.
