Quirkology by Richard Wiseman
A good title which doesn't really give anything away. What you get is how your birth date impacts on your personality, the psychology of lying and deception, superstition, decision making, humour and morality.
All these subject are examined through little known scientific studies and the author tries to end up giving us the distilled common sense wisdom version of the findings.
Humorous and entertaining but a little bit un-satisfying. It felt like half a book to me - needed more of the same.
Three and a half out of five stars.
