I am currently studying for a degree in psychology. I found this book very relevant. It's entertaining and relates scientific principles to everyday events making the information easy to digest and remember. The info. on the complimentary web page an extra bonus. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in the mind at any level.
I liked exploring the idea of morality and how varied that can be, even within one culture. Though, I don't feel the book came to any concrete conclusions, nor should it. Morality is both social and personally dictated and hard to predict.
While I enjoyed Would You Kill The Fat Man, I wouldn't necessarily recommend it to others unless, I knew they had a tolerance and understanding of academia. There were times when I felt all the theories were getting just too ridiculous and too convoluted and almost felt like turning it off. But, I stuck with it and, it does end up pulling together a lot of the various aspects and theories.
Gareth's performance was expressive and interesting, highlighting the humour.
About half to, three quaters through, it was all starting to seem very nonsensical. Like wading through a quagmire. However, if you stick with it, it does get better again.
The narration was incredibly boring.
The information wasn't new, most of the 'tips' have been around along time and can be found in many books/articles. Also, a lot of the info. was, putting into words what a lot of us do unconsciously anyway,stuff you don't really need to be told.
Too much to list
If you really believe you are not a good judge of character, you may pick up some tips. Otherwise, I don't think you will learn very much.
Anyone who likes Michael McIntyre will enjoy his wry view of growing up and the starting of his career. It's told with with warmth, truth and humour.
He told the story with humour and the same sort of observations which make his shows so funny.
You'll leave laughing and uplifted.
Michael gave logical explanations for some of the most fanciful beliefs. Anyone who considers themselves to be superstitious or, knowingly believes in fanciful ideas should listen to this.
No, if anything it has encouraged me to listen to more.
I think it was just nice to hear it read by the person who wrote it. He read it well, stressing points where HE wanted to emphasise.
I have read many of R. Cialdini's academic papers and find them extremely interesting. This speech is lively, interesting and highly entertaining. The information is very relevant to anyone at any age. Even if you do not want to persuade others, it will make you aware of when others are trying to persuade or manipulate you.
