Small enough to fit in your pocket, its contents are powerful enough to change your life!
Professor Richard Wiseman obtained a first class honours degree in Psychology from University College London, a doctorate in psychology from Edinburgh University, and was awarded the prestigious Perrott-Warrick Scholarship from Trinity College Cambridge.
