Publisher's Summary

Most self-help books encourage you to think differently, to think yourself thin, imagine a richer self or visualize the perfect you. This is difficult and time consuming and often doesn’t work.
Drawing on a dazzling array of scientific evidence, psychologist Richard Wiseman presents a radical new insight that turns conventional self-help on its head: simple physical actions represent the quickest, easiest and most powerful way to instantly change how you think and feel. So don't just think about changing your life. Do it.

Best self help book I've ever read.

Will have to listen to the book a second time as there is a lot to digest. The research presented reveals that its more useful to act as if and shift your behaviour - rather than trying to think your way out of undesirable situations. Thinking follows behaviour and emotions follow thinking.

Wise words

Having read a hell of a lot of these kind of books, including Richard Wisemans other work some of the anecdotes, studies become familiar classics. Having worked with troubled individuals for twenty years I was not keen on having my beliefs destroyed by Richards book. As it happened I think they complimented and confirmed much of the work I already did despite disagreeing on why it worked. This and his other work I highly recommend. Definitely worth a listen if not a read.

Hundreds of examples proving inconclusively that "if you ACT you will feel."

William James 100 year old theory is the first (and probably the only) theory to follow.

"Behaviour causes emotion" William James. Forget trying to get emotion right first. Just Act as if by lifting shoulders & smiling when thinking of stuff. This will bring happy thoughts.

Procrastination. "Just ACT as if you like the activity." Pull the activity towards you. ACT AS IF YOU WILL ENJOY IT.

If you want a quality, ACT as if you already have it. "Act and you will feel".

Exercise is worth doing. Just do the first step.

"Stand up. Shoulders back. Smile." Forget all other mind control techniques inc PMA etc

The book is a bit boring as there are seemingly millions of examples which prove beyond doubt that William James is the man.
