Type: Non-fiction, single subject
Full title: 59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot
I read it: November 2010
Here is the only type of self-help book any self-respecting person could find themselves reading. It’s filled with quirky instructional tales based on real social/psychological studies (for what those are worth) to help you in the areas of Relationships, Happiness, Personality, Stress, etc. It includes quick quizzes and charts for your compartmentalizing pleasure, as well as, yes, things you can actually do in 59 seconds to get you to change (or at least think about how to change) yourself for the better. Good stuff.
