    Psychology Book of The Month

    The psychology book of the month for July is:

    Paranormality: Why We See What Isn't There by Professor Richard Wiseman

    Book Description

    Psychologist Richard Wiseman is clear about one thing, paranormal phenomena don't exist. But in the same way space travel yields technology that transforms our everyday lives, so research into telepathy, fortune-telling and out-of-body experiences produces remarkable insights into our brains, behaviour and beliefs.

    Paranormality explores this new science of the supernatural and is packed with activities that allow you to experience the impossible. Would you like to control your dreams and leave your body, convince strangers that you know all about them, and unleash the power of your unconscious mind? Then throw away your crystals and ditch your lucky charms. It is time to discover the real secrets of the paranormal.

    See following link for details of all the book of the month entries on the All About Psychology website.
