A revolutionary book that reveals the four scientific principles of luck that can significantly change your life
• Why do some people lead a happy, successful life, while others face failure?
• Why do some people find their perfect partner while others stagger from one broken relationship to the next?
• What enables some people to have successful careers while others find themselves trapped in jobs they detest?
Richard Wiseman has discovered that the answer is the luck factor. Can unlucky people do anything to improve their luck? The answer is yes!
Richard Wiseman was born in 1966 and began his working life as an award-winning professional magician, quickly becoming one of the youngest-ever members of The Magic Circle. Having obtained a first-class honours degree in psychology from University College London (1985–1988) and a doctorate from the University of Edinburgh (1988–1992), he was awarded the prestigious Perrott Warrick Fellowship from Trinity College, Cambridge; and now heads a 30-strong research unit based within the Department of Psychology at the University of Hertfordshire.
In 2002 he was appointed the country’s first Professor of the Public Understanding of Psychology, and he is the most cited psychologist now working in Britain. Together, Richard’s last two books, QUIRKOLOGY and 59 SECONDS, have translated into thirty languages and have sold approximately 500,000 copies worldwide.
