Publisher's Summary

Most self-help books encourage you to think differently, to think yourself thin, imagine a richer self or visualize the perfect you. This is difficult and time consuming and often doesn't work.

Drawing on a dazzling array of scientific evidence, psychologist Richard Wiseman presents a radical new insight that turns conventional self-help on its head: simple physical actions represent the quickest, easiest and most powerful way to instantly change how you think and feel. So don't just think about changing your life. Do it.

    Story
    "Quite disappointing"
    Would you try another book written by Richard Wiseman or narrated by Peter Noble?

    I have read some of Wiseman's other books, which is why I expected more from this one.


    What was most disappointing about Richard Wiseman’s story?

    It was thin IMO, a few bits of good information, but far too much pointless fluff, and stuff that has been covered elsewhere, I'd certainly recommend to anyone that they read the '59 seconds' book over this one.


    Do you think Rip It Up needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, it was bad enough getting through this one.


    Any additional comments?

    Felt like a book that didn't really need to be written, maybe his publisher was on his back for new material?

    Hopefully he can bring out something good in the future, as I have very much enjoyed his previous works.

    Story
    "Wise words"

    Having read a hell of a lot of these kind of books, including Richard Wisemans other work some of the anecdotes, studies become familiar classics. Having worked with troubled individuals for twenty years I was not keen on having my beliefs destroyed by Richards book. As it happened I think they complimented and confirmed much of the work I already did despite disagreeing on why it worked. This and his other work I highly recommend. Definitely worth a listen if not a read.

    Story
    "ACT"

    Hundreds of examples proving inconclusively that "if you ACT you will feel."

    William James 100 year old theory is the first (and probably the only) theory to follow.

    "Behaviour causes emotion" William James. Forget trying to get emotion right first. Just Act as if by lifting shoulders & smiling when thinking of stuff. This will bring happy thoughts.

    Procrastination. "Just ACT as if you like the activity." Pull the activity towards you. ACT AS IF YOU WILL ENJOY IT.

    If you want a quality, ACT as if you already have it. "Act and you will feel".

    Exercise is worth doing. Just do the first step.

    "Stand up. Shoulders back. Smile." Forget all other mind control techniques inc PMA etc

    The book is a bit boring as there are seemingly millions of examples which prove beyond doubt that William James is the man.
