This was on my Wishlist, so imagine my glee when I saw it was up for grabs at the meetup. Thanks so much! Hope you enjoyed our get together. It was nice meeting you....even if my bf 'flirted' with your daughter... Tee hee.

I really enjoyed reading this book...full of odd psychological and social experiments over the years. The author definately has a sense of humour and so the book is not at all 'dry', but rather entertaining...and informative!

Nabbed from a pile of books libertine101 was trying to take to a meetup, but which didn't quite make it as far as the door :-)

Looks like it'll make great aeroplane reading.

A wonderfully accessible presentation of some of the weirder experiments and findings in psychology. I've read about many of the studies before (they're standards in any stage one psych textbook), but others were new to me. And even the familiar ones were presented in such a fresh and entertaining way they were worth reading about again.

I picked this book up at the BookCrossing Convention because it struck me as decidedly odd. Which was presumably the intention.

I drew a letter Q on my forehead to be read by someone facing me, but I haven't yet read far enough to know what that signifies... 


Journal Entry 8 by PDB11 from Coalville, Leicestershire United Kingdom on Saturday, June 14, 2008

9 out of 10

Great book! Fascinating research, well presented, if not that well organised.

I loved the cover. Photo of a smiling woman, the right way up and upside down. On the upside down photo, her mouth and eyes have been turned the right way up again. Result: with the book the right way up, both photos appear to smile; with it upside down, the straight photo still smiles, but the doctored photo looks quite disgusted.

For release, eventually.
