Announcing a new Meetup for The New York Skeptics Meetup Group!
What: Richard Weisman: "Investigating the Impossible."
When: January 5, 2010 7:30 PM

New York, NY 10002
Join New York City Skeptics as they kick off their 2010 Public Lecture Series with noted skeptic, psychologist, and magician Richard Wiseman.
For over 20 years, Professor Richard Wiseman has investigated a whole host of strange psychological phenomena. In this talk, he describes some of his more colourful adventures, including his work into why some people are lucky, his search for the world's funniest joke, and whether people really can walk on hot coals.
Oh, and he will also also be chatting about his new book, 59 Seconds, which debunks the myths of the self-help movement and reveals how you can change your life in less than a minute.
If you missed seeing Professor Wiseman at NECSS 2009, you won't want to pass up this opportunity to see him stateside!
The book will be on sale and he will be signing copies after the event.
