CFI has released their top 10 Science & Reason books of 2012. Here's what they have to say about As If:
Not yet out in the US (preorders available, coming in January) but already a best-seller in the UK, this book is the latest offering from Britain's most accessible and followed psychologist. Victorian philosopher William James had a theory about emotion and behavior: It isn't that our feelings guide our actions (feel happy and you will laugh). On the contrary, it is our actions that guide our emotions (laugh and you will feel happy). With this book, Wiseman uses his trademark humor to hammer the final nail into the coffin of the self-help movement: don't just think (or read) about changing your life. Do it.
