59 Seconds: Think a Little, Change a Lot - Richard Wiseman

Interesting but nothing here so far that has changed my life. The author quotes an awful lot of American studies but I can't help thinking that American psychology differs from English psychology somewhat. Not hugely but enough to change the outcome of some of the experiments in the book, surely? There must be a wealth of data about British experiments so why use American data most of the time?
